About This Event

The world is changing before our eyes and technology is advancing like never before. Join GA and Hypergiant for a special thought leadership event that brings together business leaders, innovators and product managers for a discussion on today’s most important technology shift towards automated machine learning and how this is changing the way organizations and their data scientists operate. In this discussion, we’ll talk about practical ways to incorporate AI to deliver an explosive impact on any company’s bottom line.

Organizations want to keep pace with the shift towards machine learning and the speed of business, but are finding it more and more difficult as everyone is racing to get out ahead of the competition. Applying machine learning to data is hard and data scientists take many months to deploy machine learning models, which drain investment dollars and show very little in the way of tangible results.

Automated machine learning is the new way for any AI-driven enterprise. By abstracting the complexity associated with programming and statistical skills, automated machine learning provides the business with new ways to boost productivity, improve accuracy, optimize decisions, and ultimately overcome the critical shortage of elite data scientists.

Who Should Attend? The event is beneficial for anyone who values predictive analytics and wants to do something big with AI in 2020. Learn how automated machine learning can help you impact your business in an explosive way!
