Rise of Algorithms and AI: Complexity to Competetive Advantage


Anticipating customer needs: Customer Lifecycle Management in the age of AI

Customer lifecycle management practices have been around for several decades. Companies have built intelligent customer acquisition, retention and value management practices and claim to really understand the customer context, anticipate her needs and help her in her overall decision journey. However, our day to day experience as a consumer is often very different. This session focuses on what isn't working, evolving customer expectations (such as personalization and relevance) and how advances in AI/Machine learning may be able to help.

Analyst to Algorithms - Leveraging Advanced Analytics for Competitive Advantage

Humans vs Algorithms: Taking the Human element out of Big Data

Sooner or later algorithms will rule the planet, but meanwhile humans are still calling the shots. This panel will focus on why human behavior sometimes is driving towards adoption of new technologies such as Big Data and Internet of Things, while sometimes it more properly slows down usage of those same promising technologies. The speakers explore in which domains things might go slow and where development will be fast and furious and also gives pointers on how enterprises and providers can position for a fast track, rather than a dead-end street.
