Capturing the benefits of artificial intelligence and data

London |
Speakers include:

Overview

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to unleash the next wave of digital disruption and fundamentally reshape businesses across all sectors. It has the potential to improve forecasting and sourcing, optimise and automate operations, develop targeted marketing and pricing, and enhance the user experience.

To reap these benefits, companies need to accelerate their digital transformation to leverage data and AI to improve business performance. The challenge to artificial intelligence is not in the technology, but rather, how AI can be applied to operations to drive business growth.

This confidential editorial breakfast, organised by the Financial Times in association with r4, will bring together C-suite decision-makers to discuss the potential benefits of using AI and data to drive business performance. We will look at the ways in which AI and technology can stimulate shifts in market share, revenue and profit pools, and how AI can help organisations to harness the full potential of their data, enabling them to drive overall business performance and shareholder value.
