Theme - HumAn Intelligence: A World of Coexistence

Knowingly or unknowingly, we are exposed to AI on a daily basis - products are constantly recommended to us, our voice assistant selects the perfect song to play next, our next favorite show feels nearly hand-selected. AI’s co-existence has slowly crept into our lives and become harmonious with our everyday actions.

As such, today's organizations cannot afford to not be on an AI journey. While each company may be at a different phase, everyone can recognize that this technology is the future and its investment is crucial for long term sustainability.

To be successful, however, we must take the people into consideration along with the technology. As technology evolves, people must continuously learn, grow and adapt to coexist in a world of automation, prediction and simulation to improve our lives, organizations and the world around us.

The coexistence of human and AI is the next frontier of our technology revolution. Now how can we get there together? Join us to learn more about how experts in the field are broaching this question at DCCWest!
