Getting Smarter: CRN's 2018 Artificial Intelligence Roundtable
Applications for artificial intelligence have their roots in the enterprise. But the next phase of growth will come from the midmarket. And that means huge opportunities for solution providers.
CRN gathered the IT industry's leading AI experts during a roundtable discussion last month at XChange 2018 in Orlando, Fla.
Israel Barak, CISO at Cybereason
Rahul Kashyap, CTO at Cylance
Terri Snell, Head of Partner Innovation & Expansion, North America at SAP
Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist at SAS
Jisheng Wang, Senior Director of Data Science at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company
David Wilson, VP at IBM
Tech executives dish on how they're training their AI models for edge computing, the role that data collection plays in IoT strategy, and why having a robust backend is key to supporting it.
Much of what AI technology can accomplish today revolves around automation, but the world has "a long way to go" before machines can behave like humans do.
Artificial intelligence wasn't a viable opportunity for midmarket organizations as recently as five years ago, but it's a totally different situation now, industry experts said.
AI thought leaders described artificial intelligence as the next industrial revolution during a CRN panel discussion.
CRN invited six leading technology vendors to discuss the present-day realities of AI, dispel its myths and explain where partners can find meaningful opportunities in this emerging space.
