Keynotes & Think Talks

Act Don’t React: How AI will change the way you work

Now, more than ever, organisations are under pressure to change the way they work. In today’s distributed work environment, organisations can’t afford to be tied into a single ecosystem — they need an open one that offers the freedom to shift direction at the speed they need and their customers demand.

Our speaker:

  • Rob Thomas, Senior Vice President, IBM Cloud and Data Platform, IBM

Introduction to A.I. Data Lake – Being a data driven organization

Creating an enterprise wide data lake has been a long held vision which remains unrealized for most organizations until today. Discover how Kitman is helping leading enterprises design an information architecture with the power of AI to make enterprise data lake finally a reality. A deep dive into the architecture of AI data lake and examples creating next generation data lake for the AI era.

Our speakers:

  • Kitman Cheung, CTO, Data and AI, Asia Pacific, IBM

Trust: Hard to build, easy to break

As more organizations move beyond experimentation to full-scale AI projects, they recognize there’s more to successful implementations than simply having the right data sets, AI models and scalability. Increasingly, dimensions of trust, including fairness, robustness and explainability, are essential to ensure confidence in AI outcomes.

Our speakers:

  • Ritika Gunnar, Vice President, Data and AI, IBM

  • David Cox, Director, MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, IBM Research AI, IBM

Trusted insights, confident decisions: AI-driven analytics

At a moment when there is little room for missteps and wasted time, it is critical to have analytics you can trust. A small error in a spreadsheet can lead to big disruptions caused by miscalculated sales forecasts, erroneously reported revenue, or an inaccurate view of inventory. IBM’s planning and analytics solutions help clients leverage automation and AI, allowing for more visibility and alignment while removing bias.

Join us for a panel discussion with Aberdeen Research and QueBIT to learn how clients are driving trust with solutions like IBM Planning Analytics and experiencing time savings of over 30 hours per week, while increasing accuracy by 10 percent.

Our speakers:

  • Mike Lock, Senior Vice President of Research, Aberdeen
  • Ann-Grete Tan, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Operations, QueBIT
  • Jason Tavoularis, Senior Offering Manager, Planning Analytics and Cognos®, IBM
  • Carol Samuel, Program Director, Planning Analytics and Cognos Marketing, IBM

Getting Started on your Journey to AI

Practically every organization is striving to embark upon this next wave of transformation, establishing digital strategies and appointing Chief Transformation and Chief Digital Officers. They are queuing up Centers of Excellence for AI, data science and the cloud. Proofs of concepts and minimum viable products are pouring out of agile teams. And yet, leaders struggle to engage their wider organizations and middle management in their visions. Attempts to build “digital islands” have largely failed to transform enterprises in sustainable, scaled or impactful ways.

During the session we will discuss the answer to this challenge - The Garage Approach – to jumpstart innovation and develop sustained competitive advantage across the enterprise

Our speakers:

  • Dileep Rangan, Asia-Pacific Business Development Leader, Data & AI Expert Labs and Learning, IBM Cloud

Indonesia National Artificial Intelligence Strategy

Artificial intelligence has entered several industries in Indonesia. Recently, Indonesia government launched the national guideline of Artificial Intelligence Strategy. Let's hear how Indonesia is focusing its AI projects on education and research, health services, bureaucratic reform and food security as well as mobility and smart cities to reform the nation from being a natural resource-based country to an innovation-based country.
