Ethical considerations in the use of AI in decision making will also receive his attention.
In addition, on Friday, July 2nd, Barry Devlin will present a unique post-conference tutorial Growing your Decision Making from BI and Analytics to AI. In one morning session, he covers the challenges and potential benefits of moving from BI and Analytics to AI.
