      Track 4

      The different ways to build and run an end-to-end AI application are countless. The choice from a wide range of open-source tools, vendor niche-solutions and public cloud services can make it difficult to select the right tools for the job. In this workshop we will together dive into a use case for which a stack of solutions needs to be selected, each with its pros and cons. In groups we will collaborate on different designs and have a discussion afterwards to share insights and best-practices.

      UbiOps is a deployment and serving platform for data science. It helps you turn your Python & R code into live web services and use them from anywhere at any time. UbiOps is part of the AI Infrastructure Alliance (AIIA), the global alliance that brings together the building blocks for the AI applications of today and tomorrow.

    Plenary

    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?

    Plenary

    There is currently, a welcome, explosive growth in AI ethics guidelines. However, it has created an implementation gap – it is easier to define the ethical standards a system should meet than to design and deploy a system to meet them. It has also created learning gaps, with activities happening in silos and few mechanisms in place to drive global collaboration and rapid scaling of proven tools and practices. Furthermore, in today’s world where consensus is becoming harder to achieve, there needs to be a focus on interoperability.

    – How can we accelerate the adoption of trust, transparent and inclusive AI systems globally, to fully harness the transformative potential of AI?
    What can we do to get strong buy-in from citizens and governments, based on their trust that AI is being built and used ethically?

    •  Progress to date on creating a feedback loop of real-time learning and scaling across key sectors and challenge areas
    •  Progress to date on catalysing and incubating new partnerships and initiatives to address urgent gaps and needs
    •  What are we doing to get AI governance right, to reflect best practices in data governance and is interoperable globally and across industry sectors?
