We had the pleasure of attending Dx3 2019 this past week and attending many of the great sessions featuring great brands, retailers and agencies along with knowledgeable presenters/panelists. Over the years we’ve watched Dx3 grow into what it is today, providing insight into how technology can help us innovate and better our businesses. Here are our thoughts on 3 sessions we really enjoyed.
Spread over two days, Big Data TO and AI TO hosted thousands of attendees and nearly one hundred talks covering all possible elements of big data and artificial intelligence. A common vein throughout the talks, whether focused on the business side, infrastructure side, or user side of these technologies, was the importance of collaboration and building trust with stakeholders.
Starting a startup is no easy feat, but the task becomes much harder when you can’t be yourself during the process. Monthly talk series TechTO turned the spotlight on Pride month in Toronto, featuring LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs on the mainstage.
Overwhelming is one word to describe the event but it was also exciting, inspiring and left us with more than enough fuel to move us at lightning speed towards the future.
Co-locating a big data conference with an AI conference, Big Data & AI T.O. will separately dive into the impacts of big data and artificial intelligence, with keynotes and panels looking at the intersection of these two potentially world-changing premises.
Blockchain is for worried people. The worry, mind you, comes not from meekness or insecurity but a concern that malicious actors are taking advantage of loopholes in our current social contract.
From conversations about AI creating fake videos to open banking, the wide-ranging conference detailed that fearlessness comes from using the right tech at the time time, desiring a positive outcome more than wanting to avoid a negative outcome, and putting the right regulations in place.
In a world where fear mongering around artificial intelligence (AI) talks about robots taking over, an event that talked about how AI helps humans provide better service to other humans was quite refreshing.
