AI or Die: An Ideation Seminar

December 5, 2019Sunnyvale, CaliforniaNetApp's Founders Theater

Join IAS, Red Hat and NetApp for a Keynote by Babak Hodjat, a thought leader in Evolutionary AI: Why you need to get serious about an AI journey/path to impact business outcomes.

We will review case studies of those who have made this leap, why they did, and what business benefits they have seen.

We are not going to get into the weeds about AI technology, rather our focus is to bring a discussion on the benefits of an AI path. The basic concept of ideation is to find a rational way to understand the value of implementing an AI/ML strategy.  Let us show you how we solve business problems using this technology and review a reference architecture that can speed your time to value.

Join us for an interactive whiteboard session with you, the audience, answering impactful decision-making questions.
