Overview

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to have a profound impact in utilities and AI’s early application in the water and energy sectors is prompting optimism. In tandem with robotics, cloud and advanced analytics, AI holds vast potential to radically transform utilities from traditional operators to agile, digital and responsive enterprises.

Customer offerings, supply and demand management and operational processes are starting to benefit from AI’s transformational power, unlocking new long-term business models and creating value across the whole chain. So, how can organisations cut through the hype surrounding AI to effectively integrate and harness this transformative technology? How are they reimagining customer interactions, infrastructure maintenance and field operations with the help of AI? What are the opportunities of using AI to tackle utilities challenges including resource scarcity and environmental impact? What practical issues are energy and water companies facing on the road to AI adoption? In this rapidly evolving landscape, what is required in terms of skills, data security and organisational change to make progress and stay ahead of the curve in the AI journey?

The FT and Microsoft are delighted to facilitate this high-level editorial breakfast for business and change leaders with a transformational mission across the utilities sector. Join your peers to discuss how to leverage AI, share best practices and current projects and explore the potential of this technology in the short and long-term horizons.
