SPARK: AI at the Human Interface
May 20, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm MDT
Josh will peel back the hype on AI and Machine Learning and provide a roadmap for integrating these technologies within an organization. AI is defined at the human interface and is a result achieved through intentional product design and technology implementation. Josh will describe how this human-centered understanding of AI is a useful guiding principle for transforming the organization (Sales, Product, Marketing, Operations, Engineering) to provide greater value through automated solutions, using Kount’s AI transformation as an example.
