Featuring Rashida Hodge, VP, Azure Data and AI, Customer Success, Microsoft Corporation
One of the most experienced practitioners of AI deployment—she was on the IBM team that rolled out Watson to the public—Rashida Hodge will take you inside how she’s advising management teams across the world right now as they wrestle with the opportunities and potential pitfalls of this groundbreaking new technology. How does generative AI actually work? How does it differ from AI that has come before? How do you most effectively make it part of your organization and workflow, rather than just have it off to the side? And how has Microsoft—one of the earliest adapters of the technology internally—been learning from their own use cases? These are just a few of the questions Rashida will address, as well as providing live demos of generative AI in action. We’ll leave plenty of time for questions in this rare opportunity to engage directly with a global AI leader with hands-on experience coaching companies.
