Summary:

This webinar will provide near-term and longer-term assessments of how machine learning, natural language processing, and other artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities will shape the playing field on which retailers will compete--and win--for AI-assisted shoppers. Yes, AI is already democratized. Consumers use AI every day. While AI has been in vogue a few years among enterprise IT and LOB executives, Amazon started using almost 15 years ago. Today a sizeable minority of retailers have AI initiatives underway. More will jump in.

Their challenge is to avoid science project rat holes and the fool's gold of the next bright shiny object. The webinar will provide an advanced primer to identify retail use cases where AI holds near-term promise and provide business guidance for setting realistic goals and expectation about risks, resources, and responsibilities.

Who Should Attend:

The curious and ambitious should attend, not just the brave of heart. Line of business executives whose businesses are stymied by complexity and scale or perhaps threatened by new business models should attend. IT and LOB teams in marketing, merchandising, supply chain, and operations should attend together.

Key Questions Answered:

  • Why is AI important and do-able now?
  • How can I demystify AI for myself and my organizations?
  • Can I find any examples of where AI has actually worked?
  • How should my organization ready itself for AI and know when it is?
  • How might AI, IoT, and augmented/virtual reality converge?
  • Short of AI, how else can my organization improve its game with augmented analytics?
