About this talk

We need 1 billion more for AI to go mainstream. Cultivating a new generation of such knowledge workers is one of the great challenges of the modern era. Tomorrow’s knowledge workers will be more global, work across more industries, and (as we've observed) are not always even in the office. In this session, we'll talk about the obvious and not so obvious challenges: How do we actually teach this growing and changing workforce to leverage data and AI for decision making? What technologies and applications are required to harness the opportunity? How do we up-skill them to be data driven? How do we embed existing business applications with insights from data, so professionals can make smarter decisions? Their enablement will be your organization's success.
