Do you have the right talent to put AI to work?

Join the Data and AI Virtual Forum on June 17

By | 2 minute read | June 8, 2020

Around the world, companies are pivoting to adjust to an entirely new reality. Business-as-usual means something far different today than it did just a few months ago. For most enterprises, digital transformation isn’t just a distant business objective—now it’s an imperative to find new ways of doing business.

To help organizations meet this challenge head-on, we are launching a new online event series: Data and AI Virtual Forums. Each Data and AI Virtual Forum event is uniquely designed to help you tackle some of the most common challenges you’re facing today: talent scarcity, data complexity, and a lack of trust in AI systems.

Attend these events to hear best practices from businesses of all sizes and across all industries, connect with IBM executives and experts, and understand what the future holds for the IBM Data and AI portfolio, so you can ultimately overcome the challenges you’re faced with and accelerate your journey to AI.

How are you addressing the AI talent gap?

Our first Data and AI Virtual Forum is just ahead. It’s designed to help organizations close the talent gap.  Attendees can learn how to make AI more accessible to everyone across the business—and discover how to automate AI with AI.

Join us on June 17, 2020, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM ET and 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET
interactive sessions, keynotes and client conversations.

We’ll address how to strengthen the crucial AI skills your organization needs to be able to fully embrace AI opportunities. Sessions will feature perspective and best practices from clients that include KPMG, Crédit Mutuel, Box, Bell Canada, Maricopa County and Sonoma County.

Whether you’re a business leader in the C-suite, an IT decision-maker or a data scientist, you’ll find an opportunity to learn about new ways of working and how to close the AI talent gap.
