Workshop 2 - From BI to AI via IoT

Dr Barry Devlin
founder and principal, 9sight Consulting

Under a range of names—deep learning, autonomous vehicles, cognitive computing, robotics, algorithms and more-AI and IoT together offer both the threat and the promise of revolutionising all aspects of IT, business and, indeed, society. What do you need to know about them? How should you prepare for and react to their growing importance in your business and IT environments, especially in their likely transformation of decision making support?

In this seminar, Dr Barry Devlin lays the foundation to enable you to take advantage of AI and IoT data, exploring the relationship between big data and many types of deep learning, to position traditional and emerging BI tools and techniques in the practical application of AI in the business world. Finally, we address the ethical and economic implications of widespread adoption of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

With the enormous growth of big data, especially from Internet of Things (IoT) devices, now is the time to start planning for and building skills and infrastructure in artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT to take advantage of new technologies in support of decision making in your business.
