Digital Operations Through AI-driven Automation
  • Brian Briggs - Global Head of Presales, WorkFusion

The lifespan of established companies is declining while born-digital companies take market share and create new markets. Why is this? It isn’t just that they’re small and agile. It’s that they’re built on technology designed to continuously learn and adapt, which makes their people better equipped to make better decisions and execute faster. Leading enterprises in every industry are using AI-driven process automation to digitize their back and middle operations to provide the same speed, accuracy and efficiency of service delivery as born-digital companies. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The 5 operational problems that limit growth and compromise customer service
  • How AI-driven RPA works within an operation
  • Case studies in banking, insurance and healthcare
  • The critical capabilities to look for in business process automation software

AI Edge Computing – New Paradigm for IoT
  • Franck Martins - Head of MCU Strategic Technical Marketing, Asia Pacific Region, STMicroelectronics

The development of Artificial Intelligence and its predicted future is often compared to what the revolution of the internet introduction used to be 25 years ago. The scale of AI induced transformations and disruptive impact to the world in the next coming years is simply massive and will force us to rethink completely our business approaches, solution implementation as well as everyone’s personal life. So far, almost the entire AI processing has been implemented through unlimited Cloud computing power and data storage resources, this is not sustainable in the long run given the exponential pace of volume of data being produced on a daily basis. This amount of data cannot be absorbed solely by networks, thus the need to have a decentralized AI implementation approach based on edge device and not exclusively on cloud-based devices. ST is now enabling this shift of Paradigm through its AI edge device development tool (“STM32CubeMX.AI”) and its microcontrollers portfolio.

Whether it consists of building internal data science capability, integrating AI specialists into lines of business, opening an innovation lab, purchasing new tools, or collaborating with external partners - the range of choices can often be a road-block to getting AI projects off the ground in the first place.

This panel will explore:

  • Approaching any investment with a business outcome mentality, and avoiding “AI for PR” based activities that will waste time and money, and could also produce negative publicity.
  • Identifying a compelling and authentic need for AI in your business, and finding a vendor who can deliver on their promises.
  • How much capability do you need to have in-house - and what is the best route to integrating data scientists and AI specialists into your current lines of business?
  • Creating internal innovation labs vs open innovation labs - understanding benefits and challenges associated with each approach.
  • Leveraging AI labs properly - i.e. using them to become more agile, and get to MVP quicker - rather than just being an expensive experiment.

Hybrid Operations – Preparing for 5G
  • Rodrigo Beyer Fernandez - Head of Portfolio & Offering, business area managed services, Ericsson

Virtualization of network functions is a prerequisite for 5G. However, full network virtualization will take time. In practice that means that most Communication Service Providers (CSPs) will have a hybrid scenario of traditional (i.e. physical) and virtualized network functions for years to come. The transformation to a virtual network environment will impact the organizations delivering the operations. For effective and efficient operations, having separate delivery units for traditional (i.e. physical) network operations and telco cloud operations is not sustainable. In this session, we will talk about the challenges on the virtualization journey as well as what is required to transform operations, including organization, skills, processes & service functions, and tools and automation.
