Generative AI Keynote

With great excitement, I took the stage in Denver, Colorado, ready to deliver a compelling 60-minute keynote to an audience of 500+ on topic of Generative AI and its profound impact on businesses. Throughout the presentation, I delved into a diverse range of topics, starting from behavioral drivers and opportunity drivers, to the transformative shift from data strategy to knowledge strategy.

Among the highlights were discussions on how Generative AI impacts various functional business units, the necessary changes it brings to our work methodologies, and effective ways of managing it within organizations. Additionally, I addressed the vital aspect of responsible AI and the significance of governance in AI implementations.

During the talk, I emphasized the importance of use case prioritization and explored the ideal data and tech architecture required for a seamless transition from proof of concept to production. I didn’t overlook the significance of security considerations in this transformative process.

Furthermore, I dedicated a portion of the keynote to delve into the future impact of AI, encompassing both physical and digital domains across various industries. It was an enlightening session that left the audience with valuable insights into the ever-evolving landscape of AI and its far-reaching effects.

Financial Brand Forum Tom Edwards Keynote

I recently had the privilege to deliver the Evolution of Experience keynote at the 2018 Financial Brand Forum.

For this event, I tailored the Evolution of Experience, E^3 talk tied to  EmpowerExponential and Enhanced to focus on Data, Artificial Intelligence, Multi-Modal and the New 4 P’s of AI marketing,  and much more.

Empower is looking at how accessibility to mobile technology has led to consumers being empowered to create, amplify and influence across generations. Specifically looking at the behaviors of Gen Z and the evolving role of the camera.

Exponential is all about acceleration through intelligent systems. This looks at the role of data for AI as well as the rise of virtual assistants and the ability to predict consumer needs and ultimately become a proxy for the individual that will split decision journeys between consumers and algorithms.

Enhanced is all about the bridging of physical and digital and how immersive computing, AR, VR, computer vision will make the user’s camera intelligent and forever our version of reality.

The talk ends with an explanation of how we will evolve from a mobile-centric world to the new normal of voice, vision and touch experiences powered by AI including a date when it will all converge as well as 4 new P’s of marketing to consider building future state strategy around.

It was a good crowd and I really enjoyed the 45 minute session + Q&A.
