17:00-19:00 

Location: 
Online Webinar 

Businesses are using AI and ML more than ever before. However, only 20% of companies have implemented any sort of functioning AI in their business. This event will address how, having identified a business challenge that can be solved using AI, the Journey of an AI project begins. We will share some strategies for getting started with AI, and the skills, processes and tools that can be implemented to help take your AI project from the drawing board to specified outcome.

This event will adopt the format of an interactive panel discussion, moderated by Richard Foster-Fletcher (MKAI). Bill Heffelfinger (CloudFactory) will head up the panel and introduce an outline for the discussion that will include how projects are born, the challenges of obtaining and creating specialised data sources, the models used and how they work, what learning looks like and offer an opinion over where the future of AI is heading.

Then it is over to you, as attendees to ask questions, pitch comments, and exchange viewpoints. Do join this event and make the most of this opportunity to engage with an expert panel and interact with other members of the network. There will be the opportunity after the event to continue discussions with other attendees.
