Keynote: Big data and AI: The future of business

Ms. Mah Kam Lin’s presentation on the application and usage of data for long-term strategic planning purposes. Data is a flexible, contextual and sensitive resource that can be used to draw micro-scale insights or macro-scale conclusions and inferences across wide markets, demographics and industry segments.However, it is important to distinguish between false leads and conclusions based on pertinent findings. Business leaders, movers and shakers must learn the importance of sifting through random correlation to find insightful causation - a task which can be optimised with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).Conclusions can also be drawn from incidental and auxiliary data that do not immediately appear to provide useful information, but can be modelled to find implicit connections producing valuable results and actionable programmes.This keynote session will take place in the Digital Innovation theatre.
