Headliner 1 Opening Breakfast – Think Big… Data!

Cory Janssen on Machine-Learning: What it is, initiatives in Edmonton, baby-steps, strategies for ROI, and how it’s revolutionizing every industry.  

Join AEC at our Opening Breakfast compliments of CSA Group. For over 100 years, CSA Group has helped make the world safer and more sustainable through testing, inspection, certification, and the development of standards.

Hear from Edmonton’s very own, Cory Janssen. A Warren Buffet 2.0? An entrepreneur at heart from a young age, this guy started in a cramped office in the dot-com boom, is into business and investing big-time, and never stops thinking of what’s coming… 

His next big move? Machine-learning (a subset of artificial intelligence). Say whaaat? In this talk you will learn what exactly AI/ML is, why it's happening now, why there is an opportunity in Edmonton, when AI/ML is a fit, what it can do for you business and why you don’t want to ignore it. Most importantly, how you can embark on an AI/ML strategy that ensures a ROI.

“Fear not, this will be a tech-free presentation. No jargon, no geek-speak, just a basic look at artificial intelligence, machine learning and what they can do for business.” - Cory
