WHO CAN ATTEND: This workshop is intended for industry professionals, academic scholars and students with interest in emerging data science and machine learning / artificial intelligence.

DESCRIPTION

Many CEOs, CTOs and other decision-makers are seeing an advantage from the rise of big data and faster computing power. The question arises: How can all this great data drive innovation?  Being able to harness the power of data through data science can help to accelerate financial, sales, manufacturing and supply-chain operations; enable a better, more intimate customer experience; or reduce downtime.

For many manufacturing plants with capital intensive equipment and rising labor costs, downtime is just not an option. Predictive and preventative models can be applied to mitigate downtime, offset losses and enable safer working environments.

AI and machine learning also can help drive better faster products to market. For example, when launching a new product or service, it can be imperative to use data analytics for insight on market, demand and the target demographics.

AI and machine learning are being adopted at a rapid pace. McKinsey estimates that AI could potentially deliver additional economic output of around $13 trillion by 2030, boosting global GDP by about 1.2 percent a year.

In this one-day workshop, you will be able to interact with IBM and Binghamton University technical leaders (link to bios coming soon) in the data science and artificial intelligence profession. The workshop will start with a morning plenary session and in the afternoon will transition into breakout sessions. 

CREDENTIALS

At the conclusion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion for four professional development hours.
