Join the thought leaders About Transform Transform s content is focused on the strategic and practical applications of AI. These include cases studies, panels, and workshops. New to Transform this year is a special invite-only executive track, called the VB Summit, which was previously a separate event known as the most intimate, highlevel, invite-only AI gathering of Silicon Valley. Transform offers unrivaled networking, including private boardroom sessions, breakfasts and dinners for the leading executive. This year, we re also introducing an Expo, where executives and decision-makers can discover a range of new, disruptive, industryspecific AI solutions. What we'll focus on NLP/Smart Speech Companies need to invest in NLP technologies to stay up with the revolution happening in search and engagement, where consumers are using voice and text with non-humans to communicate with businesses at unprecedented levels. Text analytics, and specifically, speech-to-text technologies are key here and will be the most predominant form of AI in businesses in Computer Vision Computer vision was one of the fast-growing trends in AI in 2018, as the security, e- commerce, advertising, healthcare, and transport-logistics industries all started applying it to detect people and objects with ever increasing certainty. Whether it's search engines, offline retail companies interacting with shoppers in-stories, or smart fridges, computer vision is helping many companies serve their customers better.

But it's a painful process, with most companies lacking the talent, resources, and organization to apply it efficiently and broadly.

IoT and AI at the Edge The proliferation of mobile phones and the Internet connection of most other devices and appliances (IoT) can often require running AI technologies on the "edge" to avoid the latency of the cloud created by the huge amounts of data being crunched. DPA/Automation/Robots Automation tech, based on robotics or artificial intelligence, is giving companies measurable results, with 70 percent of those using it saying it has saved time and a majority saying it has improved customer service. However, RPA has huge challenges of adoption: More than 90 percent of companies say they are struggling to understand RPA architecture, deployment options, and governance challenges Takeaways Stories about real business results companies are getting right now Latest strategies around deployment mixing data science and domain knowledge that will help you get an edge on your competitors Top technologies and trends around AI and data Disruptive technologies to keep an eye on Practical lessons to take with you and implement into your AI agenda Who attends?
