Sponsor: Avanade, Seattle, WA

Artificial intelligence will have a broad impact throughout society and industry in the coming decade. However, the breadth of potential applications and the hype can distract from the highest value AI technologies and applications. Avanade has begun to deliver a wide array of Artificial intelligence solutions to its clients. Looking forward, Avanade would like to understand how future AI use cases, blockchain and quantum computing will affect its business. I will examine Avanade’s current business and cutting-edge AI/emerging technology research through research, market validation and an analysis of Avanade’s existing business, and will look to answer how to look at the next generation of AI technologies.
