GLOBIS USA Technovate Webinar

Dialogue Partner: Yasuyuki Kato, CSO & CFO at GLOBIS USA
GLOBIS USA is honored to welcome Dr. Jorge Calvo, Deputy Dean of GLOBIS University for our latest Technovate webinar.
Artificial Intelligence has entered our business world and lives and is here to stay. Stephen Hawking once said: “…we cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it.” Although embracing AI entails certain risks, in the coming years, AI will be similar to how we are accustomed to electricity, and it will most likely always be around us. Current forecasts predict that 60% of all business processes will be automated, and communities worldwide will increasingly live in smart homes and cities. AI developments are believed to be driven by four key technology factors that will have a radical, disruptive impact on the way we conduct business and live our lives. These key factors are:
- Big Data
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
- Cloud Computing
In this interactive webinar, Dr. Calvo will talk about the 4 functions and the 4 disruptive powers of AI in business. He will also share which AI-driven and AI-first companies create radical innovation. We’ll discuss how they develop their AI-Flywheel by putting talent and AI to work together, and how they have been building their AI-Moat allowing winner-take-it all scenarios in terms of market value. This will be an awareness session, where we share comprehensive and practical approaches, and introduce examples from Uber, Apple, and Amazon.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about recent developments in AI and their business applications from top expert Dr. Calvo!
