AI: A Business Perspective

Seemingly overnight, Generative AI (Gen-AI) appeared on the horizon and is the focus of nearly every discussion around the State and beyond. Or so it seems. It promises unprecedented transformation in all aspects of our lives but what does that really mean?

If you’re a business executive trying to figure out how this technology is going to impact your organization, then this session is for you! We’ve invited industry and State leaders to share their experiences with Gen-AI to help you better understand what it is, what it can and can’t do, and how they see it transforming businesses – people and processes – now and in the future. We’ll address the challenges around security, ethics, and responsible use and workforce adoption, as well as share some success stories/ use cases. And we’ll wrap the session with an update from the State on where things stands in its execution of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order (EO). During the last hour, we will do a vendor breakout where our panelists will make themselves available to dive deeper into any of the topics discussed as well as showcase their solutions. This is one session you don’t want to miss!
