AI & Data After COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing our world under our feet and causing layoffs, spending cuts and market volatility, all of which are likely to lead to a recession. Looking back at the most recent two recessions, in the early 2000s and in 2008, we know that investment in an emerging technology has usually led many companies to be able to accelerate out of the recession. For the dot com bust, it was the Internet and in 2008 it was mobile. This time it will be artificial intelligence (AI).

The pandemic we are all facing is radically changing the business landscape – while some companies are struggling to survive others are dealing with unprecedented demand. With those changes comes changes to their data – either a change in data volume or in the type of data available. And we know that data is the lifeblood of AI, the technology poised to help companies pull out of this recession.

So what should companies be doing now to prepare? How should their data strategy be shifting? How should they be treating shifts in data? Join experts from KUNGFU.AI and Synerzip to discuss how data preparedness can lead to an AI strategy that leads everyone into the new world that awaits us.
