Platinum Partner: How AI Will (Actually) Transform your Data Analytics

Gartner defines AI as applying advanced analysis and logic-based techniques, including machine learning, to interpret events, support and automate decisions, and take action. The real success of AI in the last decade has come about because we've built on the evolution of computing speed - algorithms and an explosion of data to train the models themselves. The problem is knowing where to start, removing the black box and closing the skills gap to achieve explainable, repeatable AI.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • Understand how emerging technologies can add value to your analytics lifecycle
  • The real business impact of AI, Machine Learning and Intelligent Robotics
  • How AI can be used in your organisation
