KEYNOTE | The Unseen Engine of AI: How 5 Innovation-Minded Companies Optimized for Operational Efficiency

Why does one of the AI domains with the highest ROI frequently go unnoticed in mainstream discussions about AI? Could it be that Mathematical Optimization, with its equations and complex algorithms, is too often seen as the exclusive domain of PhDs in operations research or industrial engineering? Thankfully, optimization tools and techniques are now more accessible than ever. In this session, we will explore how mathematical optimization is transforming operational decision-making. We will detail how five innovation-minded companies across diverse sectors are applying optimization techniques, often in combination with machine learning, to effectively manage their operations while balancing efficiency, service level and other KPI targets, even amidst operational disruptions and demand shifts. These case studies from recognizable brands span workforce, logistics, maintenance, and manufacturing planning and scheduling use cases. Be inspired by these real-world examples showcasing how optimization is enabling organizations to build operations that are not only more resilient and adaptable but also better positioned to thrive amidst today's unpredictable world.

KEYNOTE | Humanizing AI

AI is becoming human—more human in the way it communicates, responding based on context, and matching the tone that we articulate.
AI is becoming human—quite human in what it generates, expressing itself through creative works and the solutions it quickly formulates.
AI is becoming human—which is evidenced by how well it imitates, deceiving us with convincing content even though we know it hallucinates.
AI is becoming human—is this something we'll appreciate? Or will humanizing AI be the end of us? The trigger to an apocalyptic human fate.
But if AI is becoming human, certainly, we'll have to shape, navigate, evaluate, mitigate, integrate, validate, and, most importantly, regulate.
Join Tariq King on a journey to the human side of artificial intelligence.
