Calling all Decision Makers & Leaders!

You have heard a lot about AI and are keen to embark on an AI project. You are AI Aware, but are you AI Ready?

In this talk “AI-Ready Clinics for Leaders”, we will help you in deciding what is your best AI pathway through our innovative AI Readiness Index (AIRI) and flagship 100 Experiments Programme (100E) programmes as well as how you can overcome the AI talent shortage with our AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP).

Topics discussed includes:

  1. Demystifying real-world AI for Leaders (data, infrastructure, people, algorithms and ethics)
  2. AI Readiness Index: How ready are you for AI?
  3. 100E: Your first real-world AI project (starting with the AI Project Canvas)
  4. Hunting for AI Talents in the blue ocean

Who should attend?

This seminar is for decision makers and senior leadership in an organisation tasked to build an AI strategy.

We recommend that all participants complete the AI For Everyone (online) course before attending the AI Ready Clinics for Leaders, as we will not spend time on basic AI knowledge, and will focus on the issues involved in getting you AI Ready.
