Artificial Intelligence isn’t just a new set of tools. It is the new world and it’s everywhere! From automation to augmentation and beyond, AI is already starting to change everything.

Recent research suggests Artificial Intelligence will provide $15.7 trillion of global economic growth by 2030 and those who take the lead now will get the biggest share of that prize. With a highly established and respected AI and technology ecosystem already in place, predictions are that AI has the potential to completely transform and disrupt the Irish economy. In order to reap the benefits of this AI revolution, public and private sector leaders need to understand the different types of AI technology, how to implement them into their organisations, how to protect against AI’s threats and how AI will benefit society as a whole.

According to Science Foundation Ireland, “AI has the power to bring big changes to Ireland. It is an accelerator for innovation, and it can drive digital transformation for companies and other organisations. AI is also likely to shape the future of many jobs in Ireland as it can result in processes or tasks being automated, augment or enable the work we do and create new roles in the process”.

Importantly for 2021, in the face of a global pandemic, AI also presents an opportunity to fight Coronavirus, respond more quickly to a variety of other global crises and bring smarter and quicker decision making to international economies.

Despite all of the above, around half of Irish leaders say they do not fully understand AI’s impact and mention their inability to recruit sufficiently AI-skilled talent as a significant threat. Plus, with ethics, standards, GDPR, accessibility, trust, culture, equality and support all proving difficult to manage, delivering an effective AI strategy is a major challenge both in Ireland and abroad…

Now in its third successful year, Business Post LIVE & iQuest’s AI Summit returns in 2021 with an exciting and proven virtual format to capitalise on AI’s opportunities and mitigate its threats. With an Irish focus and a global attendance, this highly respected summit will challenge, motivate and inspire all those concerned with transformation and innovation strategy…
