Datashock: Artificial Intelligence, Connectedness, and Readying for the Big Data Future
The future is going to be driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Huge power lies in smart algorithms combined with the vast amount of big data generated by sensors, Internet of Things devices, and human behavior – from financial transactions to social interactions to increasingly trackable behavior. How will AI help people make better decisions? How will it affect or even potentially replace some human tasks altogether? How could it alter long-standing practices in your industry? Where do business opportunities lie in leveraging new technological capabilities, and how can organizations prepare for these changes? The key, according to Dr. Jennifer Golbeck, is to focus on the strategic impact of these technologies.
As Director of the Social Intelligence Lab at the University of Maryland, College Park, Dr. Golbeck not only studies the most cutting edge developments in Artificial Intelligence up close, but she and her team create the types of algorithms that are making those types of advancements possible in the first place. In this talk, organizations will learn how to recognize disruptive AI, assess its potential, and prepare for a data- and algorithm-driven future.

Jen was an outstanding speaker and we received rave reviews from the guests!! Jen’s talk was both informative and entertaining, and she engaged well with the attendees in a lively discussion. She was also super impressive and poised on her feet speaking to two tables simultaneously. Please let her know I also really enjoyed speaking with her at the cocktail hour where she mingled nicely with the clients too. Thank you so much for lining Jen up with us! We definitely would like to work with you/WSB again!

Jen was terrific! We received a lot of positive feedback from the conference attendees about her plenary talk. Outstanding really. I particularly enjoyed Jen’s funny, down-to-earth and enthusiastic manner—her talk was fascinating and contained a lot of high-level content (great for our audience of PhDs and JDs). Just what we wanted. Jen was very prepared and gave a polished but not overly slick presentation.Licensing Executives Society, Inc.

She had the audience on the edge of their seats. Lively and productive Q & A. Our President-Elect (who has seen a ton of speakers) said, “Jen is the best speaker I’ve ever seen. Period.” In other words... she nailed it!
