About the Event

About the Event:

Our Distinguished Fellow Vijay Narayanan (SVP, Chief AI Officer of ServiceNow) will join Joseph Sirosh (CTO of Compass) to discuss where the next big opportunities will be found in Enterprise AI and Consumer AI. While consumer companies were the first generation of innovators, large enterprises now seek to apply and customize these techniques within their own organizations, with promising success. These speakers have had careers across both spaces and will help you understand what problems to solve and where to begin.

What to Expect:

The exclusive interview will cover topics of digital transformation within the enterprise, intelligent workflow automation and smart experiences and anecdotes from the speaker’s lessons learned from their leadership experiences at Microsoft, ServiceNow, Pinterest, Compass, and Amazon. There will be opportunities for questions and a Zoom link will be provided after RSVP here.
