Webinar: From Data to AI: Transforming Your Enterprise for the Digital Age


Event ended.

Join FACCC and Jean-Georges Perrin for a free webinar on the journey from data to Artificial Intelligence.

This talk is a journey from data to artificial intelligence (AI). It will help software and data engineers/architects, as well as non-IT people, understand the major steps and underlying technologies to help transform enterprises with the digital and AI lever.

What is AI in 2020? Where is AI used for? What are business success stories associated with AI? Those are a few questions that I will address in the introduction, in order to set up the expectations and the context. This is no science fiction! Your journey will then move on to how you can create a safe haven for your data, by understanding the importance of data quality and what can data governance can bring to your organization. Before analyzing an example, I will highlight and explain the difference between a data engineering and a data scientist. I will share how I structured successful vertical teams combining both scientists and technologist. The example will illustrate an entire AI process using Apache Spark and Java.

Finally, before we leave each other, I will review the AI ladder and place the key learning you had on this ladder: this will help you explore the future in more serene way.
