Good Humans + Machines

According to a recent c-suite study, 4 out of every 5 executives currently feel overwhelmed and under-prepared for the challenges their businesses will face over the next 5 years. The amount of data in the world is doubling every 18 months, consumer behaviour is shifting away from traditional channels faster than ever and levels of trust (public and private) are declining at an alarming rate. As a result, the next 5 years of business is likely to be more disruptive than the last 20. In this session, Jeremy will explore these factors and look at the role that technologies such as blockchain, quantum and AI can play to help us all keep up and perform more effectively.

Graeme will take you through a potted history of his data career and detail how the various show biz data fads faired years later, before sharing his views on the latest, greatest and future data fads.
