Overview

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are compelling CIOs to re-think IT strategies. Cheaper access to cloud-based computing coupled with data proliferation has placed AI within the grasp of most companies. It is an exciting time for CIOs: the potential for significant AI-enabled productivity gains is on the cusp of being realized. AI is already having a hugely positive impact in the real world.  AI and machine learning can help predict when manufacturing equipment will need maintenance, it can help predict the demands of the UK’s electrical grid and ensure that supply meets demand. Even farmers can use machine learning to keep their herds in good health and make their farms more efficient. AI undoubtedly presents an important turning point on the road ahead for corporations. CIOs can’t risk stalling and falling behind.  

Drawing on dinner guests’ collective experience in a variety of industry sectors, we will share ways in which AI can be leveraged to finesse decision-making and improve project outcomes - both now and over the longer term. We will look at the impact advanced technologies are having on business models and operations, drill down on exactly what it all means for CIOs, and look at real world examples of how these technologies are being applied to cut costs, reduce risk, enhance customer experience and drive growth.

The Financial Times, in partnership with Google Cloud, is delighted to facilitate this peer-to-peer conversation designed to help IT leaders from a range of industry sectors map out a strategy for the successful deployment of artificial intelligence in their enterprises.
