How to succeed in the Digital Transformation of your business
Join ASCI to hear Leonardo Machado discuss the trends and opportunities in artificial intelligence and robotic process automation as these are already revolutionizing and disrupting a wide range of sectors such as technology, telecommunications, financial services, manufacturing, resources and many others.
In this session we will share the main concepts from artificial intelligence and robotic process automation, exploring the key opportunities and trends as well as the key success factors and common pitfalls for the implementation of these technologies. Practical examples will be presented.
In 2017, the top 5 companies in the US are technology companies and have business strategies and models fundamentally based on the digital transformation of our world, centred around data, and the knowledge that is extracted from it mostly via automated artificial intelligence software.
As the pace of this change accelerates, we rapidly travel towards an exponential world. As recently stated by Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, “artificial intelligence is going to have a bigger impact on the world than some of the most ubiquitous innovations in history – even more profound than electricity or fire.” Looking at the future, more and more companies and sectors are focused on learning how to reinvent themselves to leverage these new technologies – join us in this conversation and learn to begin or evolve in this journey.
