How does innovation happen in the life sciences and how does it get to market? With researchers often motivated by curiosity – not commercial value – scientific breakthroughs don’t always translate into market opportunities.

How to strategically convert and digitize a traditional insurance business

A new breed of insurance company is on the horizon. Insurtechs, although occupying a relatively small part of the market, are growing fast.

How can well-established insurance companies digitize to avoid getting left behind? How are technologies like artificial intelligence and internet of things disrupting their business and what can they do about it?

The Future of the Workplace

Adapting to the dynamics of the workforce and AI

Diversity and inclusion have been hot topics in Silicon Valley for a while now. Studies have shown that diversified teams outperform homogeneous ones, bring in more revenue, and are demanded by millennials in the workforce. So far, progress on this front has been slow, as it’s difficult to know what actionable steps to take without insights. However, the use of artificial intelligence can enable hiring processes free of human error and bias, as well as pathways to achieving diversity across the tech industry. Join us for a discussion about building the future of diversity and inclusion through AI and data science.

Interview with Kunal Contractor

Conversational AI and the digital transformation journey

In a interview with SVIC, Global Director at Avaamo Kunal Contractor discusses the role of conversational AI in an enterprise’s digital transformation journey. More than just a chatbot, Avaamo’s AI is capable of making value judgements, something which can dramatically improve the customer experience. But is conversational AI really capable of completely replacing humans? Even if it can, would that switch be desirable or will we always want to pick up the phone and hear a human voice?

Interview with Dr. Maya Ackerman

AI and irreplaceable human characteristics

In a live interview with SVIC Dr. Maya Ackerman discusses artificial intelligence and the future of the workplace. Are there human characteristics which machines will never be able to replace or are all jobs, no matter how complex, under threat? Dr Ackerman’s work tackles this conundrum head-on. Together with colleagues at startup Wave AI she developed ALYSIA, an AI platform capable of writing songs. Are we at the beginning of an age when even the arts - a field of experience as old as humanity itself - can be reproduced by an algorithm? To explore the answer to that question and much more, Dr. Ackerman joins SVIC in a live interview.
