Synopsis:

What is AI? Is AI real? What can it do for a business? What can it do for my clients?

Most professionals are hearing the buzz words, but are not clear on what AI is and what solutions it can or can’t provide. By working through a case study, the aim will be to give attendees an understanding of AI and what it can do businesses. Thus, giving consultants a basic level of understanding of the potential and the pitfalls of AI and how to help their clients start to navigate this space – or understand if its space worth navigating.

Bring your burning questions about AI for an extended Q&A session, where we will explore the practical application of AI-powered solutions for businesses.
