Executives in Kuala Lumpur, London, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Mexico City and Hong Kong will acquire a comprehensive understanding of these technology trends and how they will impact business and society with Artificial Intelligence keynote speaker and author Edgar Perez
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
China’s undergoing tech boom, instead of allowing for free and open platforms, is enabling the country to implement an authoritarian tech dystopia. Local Chinese governments and schools have employed surveillance technology to do everything from fine residents for jaywalking to pinpoint an alleged thief in a 20,000-person crowd. As The New York Times reports, it is a chilling alternative vision of the future, and one that will almost certainly influence major economies around the globe.
While the use of facial-recognition software has inspired some backlash in the U.S., China has rapidly embraced A.I.-based surveillance technologies to police its 1.4 billion people. By 2020, analysts estimate that China will have nearly 300 million cameras installed, and Chinese police will spend $30 billion on surveillance technology. “This is potentially a totally new way for the government to manage the economy and society,” Martin Chorzempa, of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, told the Times. “The goal is algorithmic governance.”
Companies like SenseTime, Megvii, and Yitu are raising hundreds of millions of dollars with investments from players like Tiger Global Management and Temasek, as well as state-sponsored funds created by the country’s leadership. Some of these companies are already expanding beyond China’s borders: at Yitu, an artificial-intelligence start-up whose Shanghai headquarters includes a network of surveillance cameras linked to a facial-recognition system that tracks and monitors its own employees, talks of Southeast Asian and Middle East expansion are already underway.
If there are critical areas in technology today that will greatly impact businesses for years to come, these are Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. If there are examples of countries rising to the AI challenge, China is clearly showing the future, says renowned AI instructor Edgar Perez, presenter of programs in these subjects in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London, Mexico City and Hong Kong:
1. Quantum Computing Workshop:
• Abu Dhabi (July 26-27)
• London (August 6-7)
• Singapore (August 10-11)
• Hong Kong (August 17-18)
• Mexico City (August 24-25)
2. Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop:
• Mumbai (July 19-20)
• Abu Dhabi (July 24-25)
• Hong Kong (August 15-16)
• Mexico City (August 22-23)
These programs go beyond technology, incorporating both short and long-term business impact; these courses allow participants to immediately capture the relevance and potential of these cutting-edge developments for their organizations:
The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will show CEOs how to learn to harness the opportunities unveiled by Quantum Computing, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organizations for what the future holds. Powerful quantum computers will model all 19,000+ proteins in the human genome and simulate how new drugs can cure everything from the common cold to cancer.
The Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders focuses on practical applications of artificial intelligence for businesses using TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework from Google. Deep learning is already impacting every part of business today; in fact, PwC has warned that automation could replace 38% of all American jobs by 2030. Deep learning will continue to be a rich source of insights from ever-growing data sets being evaluated by powerful algorithms, enabling companies to make better decisions.
