Upcoming Webinar Sessions

  • Demystifying the Tapestry of Technologies that Define the Next 10 Years

    Presented by George Danner, Business Laboratory LLC

    The future will be punctuated by unheard-of levels of automation, from pilotless commercial airline flights to algorithms presiding over court cases. A highly automated future is a given—the question that remains is how we as professionals prepare for such a future.

    We begin by ticking through an inventory of the promising technology suite that will define the next decade, from blockchain to natural language processing to graph databases. These are all technologies that are available now, but will rise in importance as the wave of automation approaches. This is not a deeply technical discussion—rather, it is a chance to explain, at a business application level, these technologies, how they work, and the kinds of problems they solve well. We will also put a lasso around the whole suite to suggest how these technologies work in concert to tackle immensely complicated tasks that humans do today, even those tasks that involve a great deal of judgement and reasoning. Finally, we will have some very specific “to dos” for those in attendance—things that you can do in your own firms to prepare yourself and your organizations to meet the challenges of automation.
