Austin Forum’s presentation on AI & Why It Will Transform Everything

Updated: Feb 4

Our CEO, Charlie Burgoyne spoke on July 7, 2020, at the Austin Forum on AI & Why It Will Transform Everything with Jay Boisseau from Dell and Kimberly Storin of RapidDelploy.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is perhaps the most hyped technology trend in the world right now--and with good reason. The combination of highly capable algorithms, exponentially increasing amounts of digital data, and ever-increasing computational power has enabled tremendous successes in the development, application, and impact of AI in recent years. We see or experience some of these daily: facial recognition in place of passwords, conversational AI assistants (e.g. Alexa, Siri) and chatbots, detection of fraudulent credit card charges, improved recommendations for what to buy or watch next, and much more. Companies now use AI to improve operational efficiencies, predict possible maintenance issues, optimize sales and marketing efforts, and more. Perhaps most importantly, AI is now poised to revolutionize healthcare and medicine, mobility and transportation, manufacturing and robotics, finance, national security, and many of the fundamental needs of humanity and society. But what is AI? What makes AI so powerful? Why is it so hyped and why is it considered disruptive, transformative, and revolutionary? (And is it?) What are the most important applications that of AI today and tomorrow? How is Austin contributing to the advancement of AI?

In our discussion, Charlie uncovers applications Valkyrie has used data science, ML, and AI to positively impact our clients such as:

  1. Automated Content Matching

  2. Education Augementation with AI

  3. When AI has defined a business model
