AI in Practice: Separating Fact from Fiction
Grant Ingersoll, CTO and founder Lucidworks, assembles some of the best minds in AI and puts them on the spot. This real-world look at AI goes beyond the hype to answer honest and thoughtful questions about data science, machine learning and NLP in practice. We’ll hear about both the successes and the failures. What can you learn from these less than stellar experiences? When do you need AI – and when can other options suffice? And how do you assemble the right people to help transform your company? Can you retrain those you have?
Joining Grant to answer these and other questions are Kamelia Aryafar, Nick Caldwell, Dr. James Shanahan, and Alice Albrecht.
