DIGITAL SEMINAR | Decoding AI: Applying what’s practical while planning what’s possible

The rate of AI-related technology adoption and financial investment has been on the rise for several years. Adopters across major sectors like Energy, Financial Services, Healthcare, and Telecommunications say they are realizing competitive advantage and expect AI-powered transformation to happen for both their organization and industry.

But the truth is, we are only at the beginning of understanding its true capabilities. And while it’s clear that AI will play an ever-increasing role within these sectors, creating opportunities for increased productivity, responsiveness and efficiency, firms are still learning to navigate the potential risk around the technologies. Managing key issues around AI governance, trust, and ethics become more of a boardroom issue. Join this intimate roundtable for discussion with your peers to learn how organizations are preparing and managing this disruptive wave of change.

In this informative session we will explore:

  • Which roles, functions, and processes are, or will be, most impacted by automation and AI
  • Best practices for training the workforce who are most affected
  • Critical changes necessary in organizations to support the successful implementation of AI and automated systems

Why is successful deployment of AI at the Edge so elusive?

As AI migrates out of the data center to meet the growing demand for real-time AI at the Edge, developers face entirely different AI compute requirements, a broad range of application development challenges & deployment realities, and a more complex heterogeneous infrastructure. AI theory meets the challenges of practical, day-to-day AI applications at the Edge, where technology limitations can force product compromise on developers.

In this webinar, we explore the challenges, gaps and opportunities for AI to be integrated into a diverse range of edge products and applications improving and creating new industrial systems.

Key topics include:

  • The AI deployment spectrum from Enterprise to Edge
  • AI Edge state of market, gaps and opportunities
  • Why the Edge demands a different approach
  • The balancing act of performance/power budget/cost/complexity
  • Making Edge AI practical in widely varying resource situations

DIGITAL SEMINAR: Intelligent Automation Demands Operational Intelligence

Organizations have been automating business processes for decades, but true Operational Intelligence only became a reality when big data and analytics provided the ability to gather operational data and apply AI and machine learning models. Today, automation applications, like workflows and robotic processes, are populating data lakes with operational data, and AI is providing near real-time intelligence with sophisticated visualization tools.

As a result, operations professionals can quickly see where bottlenecks are starting to build up, which teams need extra attention, where specific human expertise is necessary, and how likely the business is to meet its goals.

This Digital Seminar will explore the leading trends in Operational Intelligence, with a look at IBM’s Automation Operation Command Center, which offers visibility into the performance of the Digital Workforce and RPA bots across the enterprise.

Key Takeaways:

  • The benefits of Operational Intelligence in a real-life case study;
  • The types of Machine Learning Models and Visualization views available for Automation;
  • The typical use cases enabled by the IBM Cloud Pak for Automation;
  • Q&A with experts including Tom Ivory, Vice President, Global Leader, Automation Innovation, and Ed Lynch, Vice President, IBM Digital Business Automation.

How Mahindra is Achieving Real AI Results in its Supply Chain

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and other advanced technologies are making it possible for the supply chain to become truly autonomous — the ability to do dynamic segmentation of the portfolio, sense and predict disruptions, and self-correct in real time in order to make supply chains more resilient, agile and cost efficient. But how can the typical company achieve this ambitious vision?

Key topics include:

  • The Autonomous Supply Chain Journey
  • Mahindra & Mahindra Digital Transformation Journey – Mahindra and Mahindra needed to enhance its traditional segmentation processes and tools based on subjective classification criteria and rules of thumb cut-off boundaries - leading to inefficient allocation of inventory and less than optimal service levels for the customer. In addition, the company relied on manual Excel spreadsheets to create demand and supply plans that were inadequate due to the complexity and scale of business. Mahindra and Mahindra partnered with BlueYonder to gain greater agility and responsiveness, improve customer service, and reduce inventory costs at the same time.
  • Strategies being leveraged by customers to make the supply chain lean, resilient, agile and responsive by shifting the Lean vs. Resilience curve
  • End-to-end supply chain visibility
  • Scenario planning
  • Dynamic Segmentation
  • Supply Chain Risk Mitigation
