Abstract of  Michal’s presentation:

With the developments in biometrics, autonomous vehicles and even digital assistants, most think we are now living in the AI age. The truth is that this is only the very beginning of this era, and we have a long, long way to go before we hit human-level AI.
However, already companies are working out ways to gain significant advantage using big data, machine learning or artificial intelligence – or all three.
The rise of IOT, robotics and increase in computer processing power is matched by the rapid reduction in cost of technology. The resulting closer collaboration between humans and machines is already happening and is yet to transform businesses in currently unimaginable ways.

Though this rapid pace of change may be daunting for some, one thing is certain: things will never move as slowly as they are right now.

 

The EMVA Business Conference will take place 7-9 June 2018 in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
