November Meeting | Role of a Business Analyst in a World of Artificial Intelligence

Tuesday, November 20, 2018 -
5:00pm to 7:30pm
 Add to Calendar


What is Artificial Intelligence all about and how will it impact the role of a Business Analyst in the future? How do we prepare for a world "ruled" by machines? Artificial Intelligence is quickly becoming ubiquitous even as more industries begin to look for opportunities to influence human capital, operational costs, company revenues and customer experience via AI applications.

The availability of big data and tremendous computing power (at reasonable cost) have expedited the adoption of machine learning to build much more intelligent systems that can learn from data.

We explore the history of Artificial Intelligence in this presentation and "attempt" to paint a future where intelligent machines are more dominant across all sectors. The goal is to facilitate a discussion around what the Business Analysis profession will look like in a future that is "ruled by machines".
