  • Assembling the right team: key roles and skills required for success
  • Building a business case that supports exploration and discovery
  • Applying a common delivery framework for AI/ML projects
  • Selecting tools and platforms that maintain a low cost of exploration
  • Working on Human-AI Collaboration as the future approach to AI for business applications

WORKSHOP B: Deep personalisation and users’ privacy

With the rush to gain increased personalised and contextual insights of users through historic and real-time data, rises the need to balance the provision of personalised services and privacy. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the following challenges:

  • Figuring out what data to collect and analyse
  • Exploring privacy concerns around more invasive property technology
  • Face recognition: frictionless experience or Big Brother?
  • Assessing which demographics oppose to the use of data and which are indifferent to personal tracking systems
