This is the remarkable Richard Bennett. He will be our guide in Session 1 of the workshop on AI/ML/RPA in Finance.
I guess I have known him now heading for 20+ years. We have designed and delivered so many experiences over that time I have lost count. He is really, really, clever and he has a real gift for simplifying the complex. He is a brilliant mentor, gives his time as a tutor and is just so much fun to work with.
He is going to be our first guest on the 29th of June. Live and direct from his lounge or wherever, he is going to talk to us about intelligent secure hybrid clouds and the mist in between.
Trust me on this it's important. You don't need to understand the details you need to be able to organise the information in a way that makes sense to your organisation.
Before you start to think about AI you have to be able to process safely, so we will start there with secure foundations. Richard is one of the most knowledgeable people I know and just like me, he has worked on the world's largest problems for its largest organisations. So let me introduce him to you properly.
Our expert on what a digital organisation looks like from the foundations up and how to think about them in the C-suite of financial institutions delegates may I introduce to you.
