2017 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium to Provide Roadmap for the Global CIO Adventure: Seth Earley, CEO of Earley Information Systems, to discuss at the Nation’s Premier CIO Conference on May 24, 2017
Earley Information Science (EIS) today announced that Seth Earley, CEO of EIS will be a speaker at the at the 14th Annual 2017 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, the nation’s premier CIO conference on May 24, 2017. Earley will be speaking about artificial intelligence (AI) applications that are currently in practice or are imminent. The panel session, entitled “Putting AI to Work,” will also feature speakers from Cogito Corporation, Clearpath, OTTO Motors, and MIT. Earley is one of an elite group of presenters from a wide range of industries participating in the conference.
While the fully autonomous vehicle is the poster child for AI, it is still five or more years out on the horizon. In contrast, many implementations of AI are available today or will be within the next year or so. AI technologies and AI-driven products are enabling new services never possible before, providing deep business intelligence, automating work, and cutting costs. The development and deployment of these systems also raise ethical and regulatory concerns as well as the risk of the displacement of jobs. This panel will focus on how firms are implementing or how they expect to implement AI, including effectiveness, stage of adoption, and benefits, as well as the potential impacts on unemployment and society
The premier conference will bring together more than 800 global CIOs, senior IT executives, technology innovators and MIT academic thought leaders together on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a full day of networking, collaboration and discussions around building a digital organization, IT talent management, business leadership and the increasingly important impact technology is having on corporations and society.
More than a dozen keynote presentations and interactive panel discussions tied to this year’s theme “The CIO Adventure: Now, Next and…Beyond” will feature more than 60 business leaders, technology trendsetters, and thought leaders from academia. In addition to “Putting AI to Work,” topics to be addressed during the conference, include:
