Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is creating brand new services, transforming businesses, and enabling companies to make significant improvements in performance. This is happening not only in traditional tech companies but also across multiple industries, from mining to automotive and from pharma to aerospace. In this talk, Jordi will share his experiences helping companies unlock elite performance with advanced analytics and AI. Drawing from examples, we will discuss the main enablers for successful AI transformations, as delivered by multidisciplinary teams. From his perspective as a lead data scientist, Jordi will also talk about the technical methodologies that are helping unlock the most value, and the emerging new best practices for delivering AI to solve real world problems.
