Moving from IoT to ML and AI: Expanding the Top Line

Session Abstract:

Many firms are leading the race to digital nirvana. Lots of them started with IoT and made a transition. Now, as AI has become more inferential, the focus is shifting from robotics to strategy. This talk will cover some of the ways this has changed the firms and altered their business models. In finance, one firm has turned itself into the “Amazon of Finance.” In pharma, new urgency has been focused on data analytics, shortening the time to value, and creating new standards. In other retailing industries, systems have moved from sensor networks to performing analytics at the edge. This talk reviews many of these efforts and describes how they are changing business models and competition. It also examines how they are likely to affect jobs.
