As top-tier education accelerates personal success, top-tier Artificial Intelligence (AI) training accelerates business success. However, misinformation and assumptions by leadership lead to inadequate AI training and prevent most companies from realising the true benefits and potential of AI.

Join us as we look at three concepts that stand to revolutionise the impact of AI on enterprise Return-of-Investment (ROI). They are the concepts of Transfer Learning, Data Diversity and Synthetic Data. In the sharing session, find out more about how the Retail, Agriculture and Defense industries are training smarter AI, and how they increase profit for their businesses through more strategic spending.
