Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) has moved into the mainstream, driven by advances in cloud computing, big data, open source software and improved algorithms. AI technologies are fundamentally altering how we work, live, and manage businesses.

Are you prepared to lead intelligently?

TechCircle is proud to announce its inaugural Digital Training on Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning: Strategies for leading Business Transformation, designed to help Business Leaders from across industries transform their organizations into AI-driven disruptors.

In this masterclass, we will teach you about the utility of technology in the face of massive globally interconnected complexity. The programme will present the basics of data-driven technologies that are transforming society and industry. We will begin with historical and recent contexts, move on to current applications and opportunities, and even imagine future transformations. These are not coding classes, and neither do they go deep into models. Instead, we focus on what machine learning and artificial intelligence require in terms of data and systems, and how they can be put in use and create value.

A.I. is more important than fire or electricity.
