AI-based Autonomous Response: Are Humans Ready?
Global ransomware attacks like WannaCry already move too quickly for humans to keep up, and even more advanced attacks are on the horizon. Cyber security is quickly becoming an arms race — machines fighting machines on the battleground of corporate networks. Algorithms against algorithms.
Artificial intelligence-based cyber defense can not only detect threats as they emerge but also autonomously respond to attacks in real time. As the shortage of trained cyber analysts worsens, the future of security seems to be automatic. But are humans ready to accept the actions machines would take to neutralize threats?

In this session learn about:
- AI approaches and algorithms for detecting and responding to threats
- How human teams adopt (or resist) automated defenses
- The concepts of ‘human confirmation’ mode and ‘active defense’
- Success stories across Smart Cities, genomics organizations, and industrial control systems

Using Data and Analytics to Improve B2B Pricing and Operations
While most consumer facing companies have been forced to up their digital game simply to stay relevant, many B2B companies still keep things going with a combination of scrappy customer-facing staff and manual, back-office heroics. As a result, the effort required simply to process invoices and payments, complete payroll, and keep the books up to date edges out any real ability to intelligently analyze operations data to uncover new revenue or cost-saving opportunities. But failing to capture the insights from data scattered across corporate systems represents a major missed opportunity. By systematically analyzing corporate operations and pricing data, companies can often uncover opportunities to reduce revenue leakage and reduce costs that return many times the cost of the effort while simultaneously setting the stage for identifying new market opportunities or increasing pricing leverage. We’ll review some of the practical steps B2B companies can take to gain better visibility into operations and pricing through better data management and analysis.

Journey to Data Science and Cloud Data Warehousing
Many companies want to take advantage of machine learning and cloud computing, they want to see that next big bottom line impact by using new technology and capabilities, but with so many choices what does that journey look like? How does a company make the cultural shift into trusting machine learning, how do you switch from capital spending to operational spending, how does an IT leader make the right decisions to setup the organization for long term future success? Listen to Brinker's story on how we implemented our first Hadoop cluster, partnered with Divergence.ai to roll out our first machine learning use case in three experiment cycles spanning sixteen weeks using Spark 2.0 resulting in a 40% improved KPI, and are now migrating our 10 year old Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse into Snowflake - a cloud based data warehouse. This is setting us up for future success by truly separating compute and storage allowing us to elastically scale on demand and quickly iterate on ML use cases to continue to show bottom line impact to the business.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: A New Imperative for the C-Suite and IT Executive Leadership
Twenty years ago, Bill Gates spoke about creating a “digital nervous system” for a business that was connected both internally and externally using networks, servers, PCs, and the internet. That vision has largely been achieved on a bigger and richer scale. Today what used to be an idea straight out of “science fiction” is now becoming a “science reality” with the convergence of massive processing power, storage, and connectivity. Machine learning and its capabilities are already imbedded in many advanced products - and the number different intelligence and learning applications for a business to choose and utilize is growing exponentially.

Since 2012, Russ Finney has served in parallel as a researcher with the itmWEB Group, as an advisory partner with the Stratamation Network, and a business and strategy Lecturer at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business. From these perspectives, and the associated research, he is seeing and sharing the critical paths and trends that the most successful companies are taking to plan and maximize their own use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to serve both customers and internal employees. Artificial intelligence is creating significant new efficiencies for business and, as a result, these improvements are creating the additional space for employees to be more innovative and to add more value. In this talk, Russ explains exactly how organizations are making this happen.

Prior to his current research and teaching, Russ worked as a CIO in the semiconductor, aerospace, and financial services industries for over 20 years. In 2016, he was named a Top 5 executive CIO Influencer through social media by Apollo Research (@rfinney). The key take-away ideas from this presentation are IT executive action items and approaches which can be immediately applied at any company - no matter the size or sophistication.

Do projects or operations improvement effort stall or worse, end up not successful? We have found that most failing projects and other efforts do so for the lack of real Business Transformation Change Management work. Without a real change plan, valuable time and cost can be wasted when adoption lags or completely falls off. This is the real measure of project success, not on time, on budget, on scope... If real use is not attained, waste wins. We go over how to ensure the success of your efforts, and that takes real work! We discuss specifics on how to drive change into your organization.
