1. Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science for Smart Business Management
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a revolutionary technology that can learn on its own by analysing and discovering patterns in massive amounts of (big) data. It is the theory and practice of building machines capable of performing tasks that seem to require intelligence. AI is simply about making machines and devices ‘intelligent’. Currently, cutting-edge technologies striving to make this a reality include Machine Learning (AI), Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Deep Learning (DL) and so on.
Data Science, on the other hand, is a dependent domain, upon which the AI domain is reliant. It is a field of study that deals with vast volumes of data using modern tools and techniques to find unseen patterns, derive meaningful information and actionable insights with which guided business decisions are made. Data Science requires the usage of both unstructured and structured data. It uses complex Machine Learning algorithms to build predictive models. It involves extracting, analysing, visualising, managing and storing data to create insights. These insights help the organisations and corporations to make powerful data-driven decisions.
This three-day workshop aims at providing essential skills and advanced knowledge in the fields of AI and Data Science, especially as they apply to business and government processes as well as other domains.
The workshop will provide a platform for developing expertise in applying AI and big data technologies for enhanced service delivery, robust market analysis, improved sales, reliable business decisions, efficient project management and responsible customer supports. It is expected that the workshop will alleviate some of the existing challenges organisations face and help ensure business success.
