Title: AI2Product – A game-changing technology in business world for innovation, transformation and automation
Abstract: AI (artificial intelligence) is one of the most important technology in the game-changing business world. Speaking at an AI conference in London, Mr. Dave Coplin (Microsoft CEO) emphatically told business leaders that AI is “the most important technology that anybody on the planet is working on today,” (Business Insider, September 2017). It is also noted that an AI Specialist typically earns among the highest salaries within the technology jobs market (New York Times, Oct 2017).
In this talk, Professor Hossain will present the horizon of AI enabled multi-disciplinary research, innovation, transformation and automation for business, particularly to enhance efficiency and productivity of the process. Professor Hossain will demonstrate how various challenges of different domains can be addressed using AI enabled optimisation, information fusion, decision making, image analysis, prediction, data mining, automation and adaptive algorithms. With examples, his talk will brief the future of cyber-physical systems, sharing economy business and medical technology. He will also present his research on AI enabled expert systems design and development process. Finally, he will conclude with an indication of the opportunities for potential collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University for research and development activities.
