Horizon and Next World Capital partner for the second year to bring business technology leaders and startups together
CTOs and CIOs can learn from financial services and travel companies that are beginning to use Artificial Intelligence as part of their business technology strategy at an event on March 7, 2017 that is a partnership between Next World Capital and Horizon Business Innovation.
Ariane Gorin, Senior Vice President of the Expedia Affiliate Network will tell C-level peers how the online travel organisation is using AI to improve its performance in the online travel business.
A further keynote will be from Michael Natusch, Global Head of Artificial Intelligence at insurance service provider Prudential; a job title that in itself tells a story. AI is considered to be a massive opportunity for process oriented organisations like the insurance sector. It is also considered a major threat to employment in the same market. Joining Natusch from financial services will be Bank of America Merrill Lynch Head of Development for Technology Andy Lowe.
Karl Hoods, CIO with Save the Children, the international charity, will provide an insight into how Blockchain and AI are impacting the charity sector. Event moderators are Frederic Halley and Horizon’s Mark Chillingworth.
Halley operating partner for Next World Capital in Europe said: “Artificial Intelligence is finally reaching a point where it can deliver for business…. allowing AI to bring major innovation to many industries from insurance to travel.” Halley said the event is an opportunity for CTOs and CIOs to learn how to harness the power of AI and drive innovation.
