Keynote “Intelligent continuous improvement, when BPM meets AI” by Miguel Valdés (Bonitasoft CEO and co-founder) at the 15 International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2017)

Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are evolving faster than ever thanks to the maturity of cloud computing, BigData and the accessibility of predictive and machine learning algorithms and frameworks. But, is BPM software ready to embrace AI?
Through continued modernisation BPM platforms goes beyond traditional process automation and optimisation use cases to play a key role in digital transformation in organisations of all sizes. Modern BPM applications requirements include advanced end user interfaces (UIs), access to big volumes of business data and real time updates of those processes, UIs and data. AI will be the next major wave of innovation in BPM.
In this session we will discuss the challenges and opportunities involved in the shift towards the use of AI technologies in BPM. We will particularly cover uses cases in which AI enables intelligent continuous improvement of business processes and BPM applications. We will also discuss about pros and cons of different AI technologies when it relates to BPM.

Let’s separate the hype from reality and see what exactly machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL) and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can do right now in cybersecurity. We will look how different tasks, such as prediction, classification, clustering and recommendation, are applicable to the ones for attackers, such as captcha bypass and phishing, and for defenders, such as anomaly detection and attack protection. Speaking about the icing on the cake, we will cover the latest techniques of hacking security and non-security products that use ML and why its super hard to protect them against adversarial examples and other attacks.

Patrick Schwerdtfeger is a professional keynote speaker who covers technology trends like big data, artificial intelligence and blockchain. This is a speaker demo highlight video to showcase his approach and experience in the field.

Patrick earns over 90% of his income in speaking fees. He has been a full-time professional speaker since 2007 and has spoken at hundreds of conferences and conventions around the world. His first topic was social media but he quickly expanded his focus to technology trends, of which social media was just one example. Big data soon emerged as another disruptive technology trend, and that led directly to machine learning and predictive analytics. Today, Patrick covers a wide variety of ‘exponential technologies’ at business events and corporate annual meetings.

Patrick writes his speeches with the same structure as a song, with verses, a chorus and a ‘bridge’ which is designed to challenge a conventionally held belief. In a song, this would be the guitar solo. In Patrick’s speeches, it’s a ‘surprising truth’ that encourages attendees to challenge basic assumptions and think differently about their businesses.

Many Fears About AI Are Wrong

Should you be worried about progress in Artificial Intelligence? Will Artificial Intelligence destroy jobs? Should we fear killer robots? Does Artificial Intelligence threaten our very existence? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is in the zeitgeist. Billions of dollars are being poured into the field, and spectacular advances are being announced regularly. Not surprisingly, many people are starting to worry where this will all end. The Chief Economist of the Bank of England predicted that Artificial Intelligence will destroy 50% of existing jobs. Thousands of Artificial Intelligence researchers signed an Open Letter predicting that Artificial Intelligence could transform warfare and lead to an arms race of “killer robots”. And Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and others have predicted that Artificial Intelligence could end humanity itself. What should you make of all these predictions? Should you worry? Are you worrying about the right things? And what should we do now to ensure a safe and prosperous future for all?

Filmed at the NAV People’s Annual User Day on Tuesday 14th November 2017, we present the first part of the keynote session on artificial intelligence.

During the mid-80s, Yoshua Bengio began his research in neural networks. This became the gateway to his career in artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL). In his presentation, Yoshua takes us through the evolution of DL: How it started in supervised learning, its progression from speech recognition to computer vision, till it reached human level processing and where we can expect it to go from here. At its core, of AI needs knowledge. Early models of AI failed as human knowledge, such as intuition, is implicit. DL was born as a way to let machines help intelligent decisions on its own. Empowered by increasing computational power and improved algorithms, DL and deep neural networks has advanced rapidly speech recognition, computer vision and natural language processing and visual question answering.

Yoshua Bengio (PhD in CS, McGill University, 1991), post-docs at M.I.T. (Michael Jordan) and AT&T Bell Labs (Yann LeCun), CS professor at Université de Montréal, Canada Research Chair in Statistical Learning Algorithms, NSERC Chair, CIFAR Fellow, member of NIPS foundation board and former program/general chair, co-created ICLR conference, authored two books and over 300 publications, the most cited being in the areas of deep learning, recurrent networks, probabilistic learning, natural language and manifold learning. He is among the most cited Canadian computer scientists and is or has been associate editor of the top journals in machine learning and neural networks.

Presented at Activate 2018

Slides: https://www.slideshare.net/lucidworks/deep-learning-for-ai-yoshua-bengio-mila

There has been much progress in AI thanks to advances in deep learning in recent years, especially in areas such as computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, playing games, robotics, machine translation, etc. This presentation aims at introducing some of the core concepts and motivations behind deep learning and representation learning. Deep learning builds on many of the ideas introduced decades earlier with the connectionist approach to machine learning, inspired by the brain. These essential early contributions include the notion of distributed representation and the back-propagation algorithm for training multi-layer neural networks, but also the architecture of recurrent neural networks and convolutional neural networks. In addition to the substantial increase in computing power and dataset sizes, many modern additions have contributed to the recent successes. Thanks to soft-attention mechanisms neural nets have moved from pattern recognition devices working on vectors to general-purpose differentiable modular machines which can handle arbitrary data structures. The talk will end with a discussion of some major open problems for AI which are at the forefront of research in deep learning and reinforcement learning.

The yearly Applied Artificial Intelligence Conference is organized by BootstrapLabs, a leading Venture Capital firm focused on Applied AI, that brings together over 800 members of the Artificial Intelligence community for a day of incredible speakers and exciting conversations.

Speaker: Paul Daugherty, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, Accenture

During this session, Paul Daugherty discussed the future of work, AI as the alpha trend in technology, the distribution of labor between humans and machines and how to prepare people and businesses for AI’s impact.

Some of the key takeaways from the session are:
– AI is the Alpha Trend in technology because it’s fundamentally shaping and changing the way a lot of other trends work and it’s poised to be the biggest thing that impacts our lifetime.
– Executives need to fundamentally approach their business differently to really get value of AI, that means creating processes that are dynamic, personalized, flexible and adaptive.
– The future is will depend on giving people the right tools so machines and people together achieve a higher level of intelligence, collaborative intelligence.
