The world’s largest AI event for business ‘The AI Summit’ took place in London from 12-14 June. Artificial Intelligence or AI is a big thing at the moment and this event showed what kind of impact AI is bringing forth in the business world.
The event was supported by industry stalwarts like AWS, IBM Watson, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Google, HCL, PwC, Intel, Genpact among others.
Here are some updates from the event for your perusal:
‘This is a technology that changes everything, and we are living through it’. Great to hear Secretary of State for business and industry, Greg Clarke, set out the significance of AI and its role in transforming businesses and skills.

Christina San Jose, group chief data strategist @bancosantander says 80% of her teams’ time & resources are spent on data normalisation because data was originally intended for simple reporting or a byproduct or a back office app, not for #datascience purposes. #AISummit #AI

Fascinating insight on the progress of #Santander’s #machinelearning activities. Here are the bank’s key customer-facing use cases for #AI & what the model deployments look like internally. They also regularly test their algorithms via sponsored competitions on @kaggle #AISummit pic.twitter.com/UOgA4X5TAw
