Alteryx joins the Artelligence Forum 2019 as Gold Sponsor

Artelligence Forum returns for its 2nd edition on September 4-5, 2019 in Dubai.

Aligning with the current national strategy, the 2nd edition of ‘Artelligence: The Artificial Intelligence Forum’, calls for a paradigm shift in the way artificial intelligence is perceived and its impact on how a particular ecosystem works.

Alteryx, a leader in data science and self-service analytics, have confirmed their participation as a Gold Sponsor of the event. Commenting on the importance and power of artificial intelligence (AI), Abboud Ghanem, Regional Vice President – Middle East and Africa at Alteryx said, “Data-driven companies are at the beginning of a major paradigm shift – from simply acquiring massive amounts of data to harnessing that data with new technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning at scale. As we continue to deliver innovations for a smarter platform, it is critical to address the human at the centre of analytic intelligence. Using predictive analytics tools doesn’t have to solely be the domain of data scientists; our approach is to make predictive analytics and the application of machine learning accessible and intuitive for every data worker, creating next-level citizen data scientists capable of building the machine learning models required to tackle the advanced analytic challenges of the future. Helping industries across the MEA region take advantage of the collected data in today’s digital economy to solve business challenges.”

2016 was a special year for AI as huge advancements were made and leading organisations saw their senior management driving the AI agenda in line with their future goals. With heavy investments being made in the area, AI is not only set to revolutionise businesses across the globe but will redefine the way us humans work, live and play. From conducting expert skill-oriented tasks to taking action on insights generated from big data, AI is fast turning out to be the cornerstone of everything technology.

As Middle Eastern countries showing great vision, they are fast placing their bets on futuristic technology solutions such as AI to safeguard themselves. The contribution of AI is set to reach $15.7 trillion to the global economy in 2030 as reported by PwC, with the potential impact of AI in Middle East AI estimated to be equivalent to US$320 billion.

Speaking about Artelligence Forum, Vicky Kapur, Executive Editor, Khaleej Times, said: “The hype is real with Artificial Intelligence as was witnessed at the launch edition of Artelligence, Dubai, in 2018, which saw technology, business and government leaders come together for the first time to discuss Artificial Intelligence and its impact on businesses and government. A year in tech is like a decade of regular time. The second edition of Artelligence will be a pioneering conference and we are excited to hear what leading AI experts have to say this year.”

Taking place on the 4-5 September 2019, in Dubai and presented by Khaleej Times, this summit will not only focus on knowledge sharing but will give importance to live demos, engaging discussions and answering questions that are critical to the advancement of machine learning.
