Despite its widespread lack of familiarity, AI is a technology that is transforming every walk of life. It is a wide-ranging tool that enables people to rethink how we assimilate information, analyze data, and use the resulting acumens to improve decision making.

TPP’s expectation through this comprehensive overview is to explain AI to an audience of the contractor community, policymakers, opinion leaders, and interested observers, and demonstrate how AI already is altering the world and raising important questions for society, the economy, and governance, while encompassing its importance through health care, education, and more.

TPP invites participants to join them as they partake in the exploration of other organizations who are delivering groundbreaking AI projects. It will help both the decision-makers and the developers/engineers to come to the front-end of the revolution that AI brings in business.

Here is the schedule for the event. Please note that it is subject to change.
