Realizing ROI with Trusted AI

Webinar Speaker: James Kobielus, Senior Research Director, Data Management

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2024

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fueling a new wave of digital business transformation. It is driving enterprise ROI on many fronts, including monetizing AI in a growing range of data products, using AI to make business processes more adaptive and intelligent, and augmenting knowledge-worker productivity and decision support.

To realize AI’s full business value, the enabling data, models, and other application elements must be fully governed and trusted.

Join us to hear James Kobielus, TDWI senior research director for data management, explore the ROI of AI in diverse business scenarios and the need to build trust and governance into AI applications.

Kobielus will be joined by speakers from Databricks and Data.World to discuss the opportunities and challenges for enterprise data and analytics professionals. They will explore:

  • The challenges enterprises face in operationalizing trusted AI
  • The role of AI-enhanced platforms and tools -- such as data catalogs, knowledge graphs, and retrieval-augmented generation -- in building that trust
  • Steps enterprise should take to build and sustain the trustworthiness of AI applications to maximize ROI
