AI Streams for 2020

Following on from our first round of rigorous industry research, we are delighted to present our new streams for 2020.

If you’re interested to present your story within one of these, make sure you contact our Producer, Katya Hoile, on:

Applications of deep learning

Deep learning is highly relevant for enterprise organisations especially with vast quantities of data available for processing. These algorithms, however, are complex and require a lot of nurturing to get right. This stream will dissect the uses of deep learning such as smart assistants or augmented analytics. It will also explore the challenges of training learning models and the interoperability between neural networks.

Responsibility for security

The importance of securing data cannot be understated especially as AI-driven analytics gains evermore personal insights, and tools such as facial recognition track individual whereabouts. The first steps to legislating privacy have begun, but all businesses have an obligation to use consumer data ethically and protect against attack. So sit down with your security team and work out a plan of action.

What are your responsibilities? What legislation will impact your latest deployments and what resources you need to protect your reputation, assets and customers?

CX and immersive tech

To be competitive, customer experience needs to be at the forefront of your development objectives. As seen with the introduction of smartphones, immersive experiences will soon be the next evolution seamlessly integrated into our everyday lives. For many organisations VR, AR and MR aren’t a major consideration and for those exploring, it’s often in silos. But, there is a real opportunity to get ahead, take your customer experience to the next level and educate yourself. This stream will support your CX strategy and share new developments in self-service, enhanced personalisation as well as showcasing how AI can create successful multi-channel customer experiences

Process of automation and the human factor

Process automation, though not AI, is an important tool for organisations especially in the finance and retail world. RPA or robotic process automation can revitalise employees by doing away with their repetitive, mundane tasks and inspire productivity to work alongside the bots. This stream will explore the opportunities for organisations including for customer onboarding, monitoring and controlling risk and identifying potential fraud as well as the new possibilities when we add a layer of intelligence and empower our employees.

Enterprise AI and in-house skills

For those early adopters, AI is already delivering positive ROI. The bulk of use cases have created smarter products, optimised internal operations and enhanced decision making; however organisations are faced with a skills gap to manage these new projects and business models. This stream will share the successes, challenges, types of delivery platforms and the skills needed in-house to embed AI into the very core of your organisation. Also hear where businesses are investing in AI next and whether the concerns around cyber security will hold them back.

Growth of AIOps

AIOps is the next buzzword you’re scratching your head over and calculating whether it really can live up to the promise of improving IT productivity. Said to drive efficiencies and real-time insights for networking teams, containers and even cloud environments, this stream is set to expand your knowledge and awareness of deploying AI in IT operations.

What are the benefits, challenges and case study examples of the impact on digital experience?

Augmented and predictive analytics

Combined with machine learning, analytics enables organisations to get deeper and faster insights. With the growth of adoption, let’s explore the best approach and solutions for your business users and support the hard work of your data scientists.

Also what’s next for analytics with machine learning and will it impact the role of business intelligence solutions?

  • "The show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things. I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.”
    Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
  • “We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging. “It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."
    Sales Director, UK – Splash BI
  • “It is the first year we exhibit and I find the event super interesting. We gave a talk, which was very well attended and afterwards we had very good discussions. I would say the event was innovative and offers good opportunities to network.”
    Marketing Manager - Oracle
  • “This is our second time participating in Big Data World in Singapore and we’ve seen a lot of traffic over the two days. The conversations in the big data community around machine learning is a lot more mature here. Not only the delegates are interested in big data, they are also keen to learn more about data science, artificial intelligence and internet of things.”
    Regional Sales Director - Qubole Inc.
  • "Pivigo has participated in many events in the UK & Europe over the last 12 months and Big Data World was by far the best of them all. The event was a huge success delivering a ROI, prompting us to participate in Big Data World in Germany and London next year."
    Marketing & Communications Manager - Pivigo
  • "I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year! "
    Head of Data Science - Barclays (Visitor)
  • "Cloud Expo Europe & Data Centre World located alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019."
    Data Scientist - Sky (Visitor)
  • "I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well."
    Senior Director - Ralph Lauren (Visitor)
