Artificial Intelligence (AI)

With Artificial Intelligence dominating the recent tech landscape, you may have a few questions. Like, “What is AI? How do I use it? Can I use my WIFI password or will one be given to me?” These are great questions. All of which we’ll answer at our Round Table event.
 
From self-driving cars to cat facial recognition (yep, this is real), swathes of human endeavor are being taken over by machines working faster, harder and more efficiently than us mere mortals. This steely superpower has everyone clamoring to take a ride on the AI bandwagon.
 
With Artificial Intelligence, you’ll provide a more meaningful and customized experience for consumers. One that helps bring brands From Now to Next®.
 
But, like most things, integrating AI may be easier said than done. We suggest taking a deep breath, counting to three, and signing up for this Round Table.
