Manish Kothari – President of SRI International

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “artificial intelligence”? Do your thoughts veer more towards Terminator or Robby the Robot (Will Robinson's guardian from "Lost in Space")? Do you envision future machines being more like Hal from “2001: A Space Odyssey” or Samantha from the 2013 movie "Her"? Nobody knows for sure how real-world AI will eventually evolve, but one person has a better idea than most, and that’s led him to predict where AI, machine learning, & automation will have...


Tom Ivory – Head of Intelligent Automation, Digital Operations, North America for Capgemini

Thomas Preston-Werner, the American billionaire founder and former CEO of GitHub, once famously said "You're either the one that creates the automation or you're getting automated." Corporations around the globe are clearly heeding this admonition. The current frenzy of POC's, pilots, and other projects underway to automate various aspects of enterprise operations using AI & Machine Learning is staggering. What about the results though? Are organizations seeing the kinds of returns on...


Theresa Kushner – Partner in Business Data Leadership, & former Sr. VP of Dell

The famous management consultant W. Edwards Deming once said “In God we trust, all others bring data.” Enterprises embracing digital transformation are bringing that data in droves, and cultivating it in ways unimaginable even just a few short years ago. Thanks to new tools, techniques, and technological advances, massive volumes of historical & real-time data can be analyzed to make forecasts about future events. This field of “predictive analytics” has enormous implications for everyone....


Naor Penso – Founder of Toast, & former CTO of Cyber Security at AMDOCS

Cyber security is an issue keeping an awful lot of IT executives up at night. And rightly so. Today's threat landscape is increasingly hostile, the cyber security skills gap continues widening, and budgets aren't keeping pace with the demand for better defensive measures. It's a perilous situation exacerbated by the astounding fact that many C-suite executives don't take the need for cyber security seriously, until a high-profile incident occurs on their watch. Gaining a better understanding...


Matt Smith – Conversational AI Practice Leader & AVP of Cognizant

Less than 10 years ago, having intelligent conversations with a voice-enabled computing device was a familiar feature of Sci-Fi movies, but an uncommon sight in everyday life. A decade onward all that's changed because as we've seen time and time again, there's no such thing as science fiction, only science. Wherever you look these days, smart speakers, chat bots, and other advanced communication channels employing conversational AI are making information more accessible than ever. Adoption...


Dr. Ahmed El Adl – Principal Director of AI Consulting & Intelligent Solutions for Accenture

"May you live in interesting times" (a 19th-century English expression often mistaken as being of Chinese provenance), aptly describes today's technology environment. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and the internet of things were already interesting enough. It turns out though that those were just prologue to the rise of something called a "Cognitive Digital Twin". To shed light on this and other advances, we turn to Dr. Ahmed El Adl, Principal Director of AI...


Dave Robbins – former CIO of Ellie Mae & former CTO of NetApp

Automating IT operations is mainstream today, and in fact a strategic priority for many enterprises, but this wasn't always so. In an earlier era, when automation tools were still embryonic and difficult to use, IT executives had to not only grapple with technical challenges, but also budget justifications, organizational complexities, and not least of all the dynamics of cultural resistance to radical technological change. As a senior IT executive with market leaders such as Capgemini,...


Ritu Jyoti – Program Vice President, Systems Infrastructure Research Portfolio for IDC

What does the speed of eye blinking have to do with detecting credit card fraud, and how is that relevant to the average lifespan of companies on the S&P 500 dropping from 61 to 18 years? The answer in both cases is digital transformation, which thanks to spectacular advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation is reshaping the global business landscape. We discovered these insights from talking with Ritu Jyoti, Program Vice President of IDC, an international market...


Andrew Brill – Vice President of Engineering, Cloud Services, and RPA/IA for Change Healthcare

How can automation in the highly regulated, fiercely competitive field of healthcare give an organization a leg up on its rivals? What are the biggest quantifiable benefits a healthcare organization can expect to enjoy by deploying automation? And what are some of the most effective tactics to employ in getting your organization to embrace automation, despite trepidations some may have about the possible repercussions to their jobs? Andrew Brill is one of the most experienced & knowledgeable...


Ron Schmelzer – Managing Partner and Principal Analyst for Cognilytica

Artificial intelligence frightens some, excites others, and captivates just about everyone. Inflated expectations about AI’s potential for good & bad have accompanied its narrative since antiquity, when as American author Pamela McCorduck wrote, it originated with "an ancient wish to forge the gods." Modern sentiments about AI continue to fuel some very basic misunderstandings about its nature, as well as what it can and can’t do (yet). To help us analyze the seemingly concealed reality...


Lee Coulter – Chair of the IEEE Working Group on Standards in Intelligent Process Automation

Should automation projects be a business activity or an IT activity? What differentiates Bot 1.0 from 2.0 & 3.0? What is task harvesting? Why do less than 5% of organizations have an automation strategy, when automation is clearly such a major component of enterprise digital transformation? As Chair of the IEEE Working Group on Standards in Intelligent Process Automation, Lee Coulter is in a unique position to answer these and many other questions about automation. Lee talks with us and...


Gene Chao, Global Vice President and General Manager - IBM Automation

Automation, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning are disrupting work environments in nearly every major industry and job function around the globe. This tectonic shift in how work gets done is almost as breath-taking as the pace at which the change is occurring. Depending on one’s perspective, this digital transformation is either exciting, unsettling, or even both. If however you run the automation practice for IBM, a Fortune 100 company, your perspective is uniquely broader, and...


Marisa Slatter – Managing Consultant, Capgemini Research Institute

Digital Masters, those organizations demonstrating a high mastery of both digital and leadership capabilities, are on average 26% more profitable than their industry competitors. Investors have taken note, as evidenced by the fact that Digital Masters generate 12% higher market valuation ratios than their competition. But what does it take for an organization to become a Digital Master, and what insights have Digital Masters acquired that empower them to outperform their market segment? For...


Alessandro Perilli – General Manager, Management Strategy at Red Hat

How can senior IT executives best deal with the increasingly complicated nature of managing IT operations? The ever-growing demand for computing resources, the expanding complexity of computing environments, and the critical shortage of experienced talent are all seemingly conspiring to derail the C-Suite's best laid strategic plans. Alessandro spends a lot of time working on these issues as part of his role at Red Hat. He believes that the proper alignment of automation, public cloud...


Ian Barkin – Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Symphony Ventures

"Disruptive Innovation", a term coined in 1995 by Harvard scholar Clayton M. Christensen, can wreak havoc and displacement upon markets, organizations, and product lines. New technologies such as Cassette Tapes, CDs, and MP3 files, are examples of innovations which disrupted the music industry, upending the existing order. Many people are predicting that automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning could generate the same chaos. However, Ian Barkin Chief Strategy Officer for...


Ola Chowning – Partner at ISG (Information Services Group)

“Agile” has been a highly successful approach to software development since the start of the 21st century, though its conceptual roots can be traced back to 1957. Are Agile's principles of adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continual improvement applicable beyond IT to an organization as a whole? Ola Chowning believes so, & she should know. As head of ISG's Enterprise Agility practice, Ola is calling on organizations to innovate technologically in order to...


Robert H. Brown - AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions

Throughout the world, in just about every industry imaginable, automation is eliminating more and more manual labor from processes that traditionally required human activity. Some sociologists & economists believe this changing reality will ultimately mean far-reaching changes for us as a society (basic income, redefining “full-time” employment, etc.). Robert H. Brown however, believes this digital transformation will create unprecedented new opportunities for those prepared to adapt. The...
