NFAIS Forethought Webinar, Artificial Intelligence #1 – Planning for Implementation - April 8, 2020

While in many ways, artificial intelligence (AI) is still in nascent form, more and more information providers are exploring its implications for their businesses and services. In the first session of this two-part webinar, a panel of experts will convene in a roundtable discussion to consider how information companies like yours might — and do — use AI to enhance their products and services; how you can you best strategically approach the technology needed to do so; what costs may be incurred; and what’s the right balance between customization and privacy. If your organization is starting to use AI — or planning to do so — then this webinar will help get you up to speed on the questions you need to be considering as you plan for your implementation.
