AI with impact: for crisis response and business continuity and recovery


16:30 – 17:10

PANEL DISCUSSION

How to overcome pandemic disruption: an AI for business continuity action plan

The impact of coronavirus has already had an unprecedented impact on businesses around the globe. Supply chains are frozen, teams are working remote, sales cycles are unpredictable. The end result for companies will vary widely depending on how well they balance defence (handling the present) and risk-mitigation with innovation and technology investment (winning the future). Forward-focused leaders will need to know where to focus with AI, and what kinds of applications and use-cases matter most to stop the bleeding, and to build a stronger foundation for resiliency and competitiveness.

Near term AI use cases for business continuity: from managing risk to driving efficiencies, what AI application types are helping to respond and recover?

How to leverage what to focus on – where are the business areas where AI can make all the difference in surviving and thriving in this pandemic/in a crisis?

What frameworks might turn risk mitigation into new business models?

How can you form a vision with confidence?
