2018 Themes and Topics

Join your peers at VB Summit as we look at how execs are using AI to disrupt their businesses from two distinct viewpoints: The ”front end," where companies are leveraging a range of applications to achieve business growth from more efficiently attracting and engaging their customers, and the "back end," where AI is being used for things like supply-chain optimization, and office productivity, drug discovery and more.

See the topics below we’ll cover in our general session and intimate executive roundtables.

AI's impact on product development

The legacy approach to product development doesn't hold when developing AI solutions. The role of a product manager is changing; It's one thing to draw up a wireframe for a mobile app; it's another to build a predictive AI system.

Next Level Personalization

How to use AI and machine learning to supercharge personalization and push customer engagement to new heights.

Corporate transformation-The Complete Picture

Machine learning is driving changes at all different levels, from tasks, to business processes to marketing, sales forecasting, and even entire business models. How does the C-Suite stay out in front?

The Build or Buy Conundrum

Do you start a third-party technology solution or hire a bunch of very expensive people (if you can find them!) to develop your AI solutions? There's no answer that doesn't require a lot of AI experts, and no such thing as free. Here's how some smart brands figured it out.

Data Security

AI/Machine learning has actually been used in cybersecurity for a long time, but with the increasingly vast amounts of data, we can leverage what machines are best at, and what humans are best at, to more efficiently apply existing resources and achieve better security results.

Mastering Deployment

We will showcase the best examples we can find of how to make the AI magic happen, from defining the problem, to collecting data, forming algorithms, and then executing with a human in the middle (or not).
