AI 101: Demystifying AI and Exploring Business Use Cases

Date: Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019 | 2 hours

Presented By: Dhairya Dalal, Data Scientist, Talla

About: It is an exciting time for AI research. There are breakthroughs being published and new technologies emerging almost every week. It can feel overwhelming to keep up and make sense of the broad scope of capabilities and technologies (GANs, deep learning, decision trees, and so much more). Part of the challenge is that this research is often technical, nuanced and scoped around specific academic problems. What does it mean to use neural networks for your organization. Does it even make sense to use these technologies? 

In this workshop, we aim provide an introduction to the research and state of AI technology today. Our goal is help you frame and map business challenges to appropriate AI solutions. We will provide you with a framework to communicate business goals and requirements to data science / AI research teams. You will learn what exactly AI research entails, where it can (and often can’t!) provide value for real world use cases, and how to take a information-centric world view in order understand how AI can benefit your organization.
