Autonomous Decision-Making, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence: What Does It All Mean and Why Should You Care?
We have entered a new era of analytics with machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms beginning to deliver on the long-promised advancement into self-learning systems. These approaches allow us to solve previously intractable problems with completely new attack plans. The appetite of deep learning algorithms for vast amounts of data and the ability to derive intelligence from diverse sets of noisy data allows us to go far beyond previous capabilities in what we used to call advanced analytics. However, to be successful we need to understand the capabilities and limitations of the new technologies. We also need to develop new skill sets in order to harness the power of deep learning to create business value in an enterprise.
Learn about the future of artificial intelligence and how you can take advantage of emerging capabilities today
Learn about the differences between deep learning and shallow learning and when to apply which technique
Learn about the pitfalls and opportunities for using advanced analytics to create high value outcomes.

About our Seminars
We offer time-poor executives and managers short seminars of 1-2 hours on current, topical and visionary subjects in the domain of data analytics. Stephen Brobst, CTO Teradata, has produced a diverse range of seminars that he can present to your staff at your premises. We may also occasionally run these as public seminars. Stephen frequently delivers keynotes at large conferences and is equally comfortable with business and/or technical audiences in smaller industry, organisational or user group meetings. Multiple seminars can be scheduled for one day. Stephen is experienced in both computer science via his MIT PhD work, and is also well versed in business management through his MBA work in a joint program between the Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Stephen Brobst is the Chief Technology Officer for Teradata Corporation. Stephen performed his graduate work in Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where his Masters and PhD research focused on high-performance parallel processing. He also completed an MBA with joint course and thesis work at the Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management. Stephen is a TDWI Fellow and has been on the faculty of The Data Warehousing Institute since 1996. During Barack Obama’s first term he was also appointed to the Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) in the working group on Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD). In 2014 he was ranked by ExecRank as the #4 CTO in the United States (behind the CTOs from Amazon.com, Tesla Motors, and Intel) out of a pool of 10,000+ CTOs.
