    Why watch this?

    Integrating AI into IoT networks is becoming a prerequisite for success in today’s data-driven digital ecosystems. The only way to keep up with IoT-generated data and gain the hidden insights it holds is using AI as the catalyst of IoT. Join this webinar to understand how IoT and AI may work together.


    Businesses across the world are rapidly leveraging the Internet of Things to create new products and services that are opening up new business opportunities and creating new business models. The resulting transformation is ushering in a new era of how companies run their operations and engage with customers. However, tapping into the IoT is only part of the story.

    To realize the full potential of IoT enablement, companies need to combine IoT with rapidly-advancing Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. Such technologies enable ‘smart machines’ to simulate intelligent behavior and make well-informed decisions with little or no human intervention.

    By applying the analytic capabilities of AI to data collected by IoT, companies can identify and understand patterns and make more informed decisions. This leads to a variety of benefits for both consumers and companies—such as proactive intervention, intelligent automation, and highly personalized experiences. It also enables us to find ways for connected devices to work better together and make these systems easier to use.
