September 17 | 2:00 pm | Free

An introduction to the principles and applications of AI and machine learning as seen through the lens of SMEs via user cases across multiple sectors.

Despite all the AI hype, the reality remains that a vast majority of companies simply do not have the capacity to augment their business operations with AI at scale, resulting in a series of one-off pilot projects. Please join Nicolas Chapados, Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Element AI, Zied Touzani, Head of Partnerships at Dataperformers, and Stephane Boivin, Co-founder and CEO at Pivot88, as we explore how businesses can overcome these challenges and realize the benefits of artificial intelligence.
