How data and AI leaders can put AI to work responsibly in 2024

23 February 2024, America 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST

What’s missing to adopt AI at scale across your business?

We are all witnessing history—the rise of innovative technology that will radically transform business and society. That technology, of course, is artificial intelligence (AI). While advances in Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning have led to significant progress in AI over the past decade, AI has also been challenging to scale and operationalize. While adoption is increasing, only 54% of AI projects make it from pilot to production (Gartner).

Generative AI that leverages powerful foundation models changes that dynamic and makes massive AI scalability possible. Although a foundation model requires a significant investment up front, it amortizes the initial work of AI model-building each time it is used, as the data requirements for finetuning additional models are much lower. This will lead to both increases in ROI and much faster time to market.

It is crucial for your organization to act now, or risk falling behind AI-augmented competitors. Join thought leaders from IBM, along with a group of your likeminded peers, as we discuss responsible and trustworthy AI, AI governance, and data strategy, and share the blueprint for organizations to create a competitive advantage in the age of AI for Business.
