Closing Session

The adoption of AI in the workplace is leading to significant transformations in how businesses operate by automating routine tasks and enabling more efficient and informed decision-making. This shift is not only enhancing productivity – it necessitates a change in workforce skills with a growing emphasis on AI literacy and data management competencies.

However, many organizations are struggling to effectively adopt AI in a way that facilitates long term success. To ensure that they are making the most out of their investment in AI, businesses need to be certain they are taking the proper steps to effectively integrate the technology in their operations.

What does successful adoption look like? How are organizations who have experienced success with AI adoption ensuring their investment is worthwhile?

This session will explore two case studies on AI and the workplace.
