Data has become one of the most valuable assets in our present era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), a key source enabling insight-driven decisions. Its potential for opportunities is precisely why organisations need to strengthen their understanding and ability to manage and use data to their advantage. Done well, it could even open up doors to the development and deployment of technologies like artificial intelligence (AI).

AI can, in turn, help organisations drive greater growth through solutions that improve efficiency and customer experience. Not forgetting the possibility for new products, there’s no better time than now for organisations to start building their AI capabilities. But harnessing the power of AI can be complex, with the adherence to governance, ethics, security, control, and monitoring paramount to responsible deployment. What are some best practices to approach this?

Join us at our complimentary 2-day virtual event where we will discuss the opportunities that data and AI can bring, and share insights on addressing their risks. By improving awareness and understanding, we aim to inspire greater adoption nationwide.
