From theory to the real world

Every major innovation today started as just an idea. Artificial intelligence was one of them. One company learnt from another and now almost every business uses AI in some exciting way — and the learning continues. From FinTech and cyber security to gaming and education, we feature the companies creating the best and boldest AI-driven technologies and hear from the clients implementing them in the real world.

With eye-opening examples and an armoury of case studies, we invite today’s most forward-thinking companies to showcase their outstanding achievements and the challenges they bumped into on the way. From automating manufacturing to rating the ‘ethics’ score of social media platforms, this stage takes an honest look at the AI that’s actually deployed in the enterprise.
