SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rackspace Technology™ (NASDAQ: RXT), a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, will hold the virtual event How Businesses are using AI and Machine Learning Today on December 9th at 10:00 am CT as part of the company’s Solve Strategy Series.
Jeremy Howard, data scientist, researcher, educator and founder of fast.ai, will deliver a keynote on the top capabilities and constraints of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), including examples of successful applications and requirements to effectively put the technology into practice. He will then be joined by industry experts from Salesforce and Rackspace Technology for a panel discussion on how today’s enterprises are using AI/ML in new and innovative ways.
“As more businesses aim to adopt artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, many of them are beginning to realize a critical skills gap when implementing the technology,” said Howard. “Fortunately, with the right partners and strategy in place, businesses can fully take advantage of the benefits the technology has to offer without needing established expertise on staff. This event will be a great first step in equipping enterprises with a roadmap to AI/ML success.”
For many enterprises, the pandemic has accelerated the need for enhanced product offerings, improved business efficiency and the ability to anticipate customer behavior. Enter artificial intelligence and machine learning — technologies with the power to help organizations leverage their data to make automated recommendations, take preemptive action and streamline decision-making. But without the required technical skills and business processes, organizations will run into a number of challenges that will minimize the value of their AI/ML implementation. In fact, a recent Gartner survey found that lack of skills on staff and understanding of the technology’s benefits are among the top challenges of AI/ML adoption.
“Although the pandemic has catalyzed the need for AI/ML adoption, its value will continue to increase in the coming years,” said Jeff DeVerter, CTO, Solutions at Rackspace Technology and webinar moderator. “The virtual event, with comprehensive insights from industry leaders like Salesforce, Rackspace and Jeremy Howard, will further uncover how enterprises can capitalize on their data by using leading cloud-native AI/ML frameworks. Together, we’re proud to support some of the world’s leading organizations through every step in their AI/ML journeys.”
