Description
Artificial Intelligence or Applied Intelligence, as we call it in Accenture, is everywhere. Today we are living in an age where we see the applications of AI all around us including conversational agents like Alexa to Map that we use for everyday commute to automation in healthcare and so on. This has happened due to the proliferation of AI at scale and across various industries. It has emerged that AI cannot be applied in silos without the knowledge of industry or domain expertise. Hence domain experience and business knowledge play a vital role along with data science in building novel applications. In this talk, we will go through - how AI-based Renewable Electricity system works, why signal processing is important for building speech AI systems, how AI can be applied to sustainability initiatives and what role different engineering and science disciplines play in building robust and scalable AI systems.
