Eureka! AI

Event Navigation

This course is a non-technical primer, of a difficult topic, Artificial Intelligence (AI, Deep Learning), but it will still go very deep in a way that a layman can understand. It offers a comprehensive scope, not only of the benefits, but also about what works, what is mature, how to get AI to work for the new business models that will be revolutionary.

There is no greater feeling than the Eureka moment; when we could suddenly join the dots to grasp a core insight. Like Archimedes, we shout out loud – EUREKA! This is how we will teach AI. Although AI is highly complex, controversial and requires a programming and mathematical background to get through its technical depths, we have developed a new style of training that is exceptional, technically forceful, strategic and exciting, yet it is essentially light-hearted and anecdotal on AI’s emergence, now to be visualized as the new ELECTRICITY.

Well, AI is more than the modern invention of FIRE or ELECTRICITY. It is the most revolutionary development that will bring benefits and impact to every sector of our economy but would also probably kill millions of jobs. Hence, we will need to ponder over its future effects (for the next 20 years). We will witness disruptions that will be most rewarding, doubling our GDP if we get it right. If we don’t, our companies will perish. Hence, do not be left behind. Start this discourse now and understand these issues deeply and get ready for the tidal wave of impending changes, driven by AI.

Uniquely, the course will focus on Deep Learning, instead of the conventional Machine Learning, as this will save time and reduce complexity. Fundamentally, it will explain efficiently how to get started, the technology strategy for AI and how to get AI solutions into the hands of enterprise users and operators. This is balanced by explaining the risks e.g. cyber security cum data privacy challenges.

This short course will also cover the key transformations and the exciting Smart Nation initiatives that will drive businesses in the next few years. There is an urgent need to know what will be available, the cost structures of AI systems and software, and how best to take a big “leap forward” in attaining higher productivity, automation and new value for customers. “AI First” is the new buzzword for enterprise transformation!
