Demystifying AI and Automation

The majority of enterprises still employ engineers to design, build, and operate IT infrastructures, web designs, and software—easing fears of automation taking over our jobs. However, automation has been leveraged to support IT professionals with some of the most repetitive and predictive tasks, making room for them to focus on more complex and innovative projects. This session will explore various ways in which companies are deploying and leveraging automation and AI to support critical business functions without increasing costs or requiring additional and/or a diversion of resources. In short, this session will demystify AI while providing clarity to key differences between AI and automation.
