Product Owners: Are you ready to ride on AI wave?

Today, everyone’s talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it’s going to change the way we conduct business, and live our lives, forever.

In fact, it’s shaping up to be the single biggest technology revolution the world has ever seen. It’s a completely new factor of production, capable of driving business growth by augmenting natural human expertise, taking automation to new places, and diffusing innovation throughout society.

A new cohort of AI-first businesses is flowing into the market. As many as three-quarters of executives say that some kind of AI will be actively implemented in their organization within three years. It’s happening because AI technologies are finally hitting the mainstream.

The rapid pace of change puts a new onus on product owners. Do you understand what AI is, what it can do, and the ethical questions it raises? Have you truly grasped the game-changing implications for your business, your industry – and for the society you live in?

This talk is here to help answer some of these questions and more.
