Event description

Description

Organised by The Artificial Intelligence Research Centre at Brunel University London's Business School

Formerly the realm of science fiction or computing labs, artificial intelligence (AI) is now a significant part of business life. More and more decisions are being automated or augmented by machine learning algorithms and, in some areas, artificial intelligence is even being given autonomy to take decisions without human intervention.

The strategic effects of the AI and associated technologies – machine learning, Blockchain, augmented and virtual reality, chatbots and the internet of things – are beginning to be felt in many sectors. Sectors such as financial services, insurance, logistics, retail, manufacturing, health, social services and police forces are actively using these technologies.

Artificial intelligence doesn’t just change how organisations work. It introduces new competitors and business models, as new digital platforms attack incumbents; it requires new skills and capabilities; raises ethical concerns, and impacts on how and why strategic decisions are made.

Delegates can choose from four topics that will be covered in 2 parallel streams, led by speakers from industry and academia. There will be ample opportunity to network with peers.

Morning streams:
Topic 1: AI-driven Tansformation

AI Challenges facing Organisations - Professor Ashley Braganza, Brunel Business School

The AI skills employers need in their workforce to successfully manage transformation - Bill Mitchell, Director of Policy, British Computer Society

Topic 2: Strategy and Business Models

AI in Government - Chris Webber, Open Innovation Team, Cabinet Office

Afternoon streams:

Topic 3: AI Adoption and Case Studies

Implementation of AI and Blockchain - Pratap Tambe, Head, Blockchain – Tata Consultancy Services

How AI is game changing talent acquisition - Kevin Butler, IBM Watson Talent Lead for Europe

Topic 4: Ethics and Risks
Setting the Standards for Accountable AI - Allison Gardner, Women Leading in AI

Additional speakers will continue to be added...

This event brings together senior managers, policy makers, academics and researchers to share their experiences, knowledge and cutting-edge research. The symposium is aimed at empowering participants to access the emergent technological environment, and make strategic decisions for, or on behalf of their organisation.

Some questions we will be exploring are:

  • What new strategic capabilities should my organisation develop?

  • How does my organisation maintain market share?

  • Which jobs will be affected by these technologies?

  • What options do I have for my organisation’s business model?

  • How do I address ethical concerns raised by the technology?

  • What are the risks, and how do I mitigate them?

  • How do I transform the organisation’s internal operations and external relationships?

Regstration includes refreshments, lunch and a networking drinks reception.

Free parking is available on campus.

We look forward to seeing you at the Brunel Business School for this timely event...

Best wishes,

The Artificial Intelligence Research Centre
