Andy Fitze Speaking Topics

  • IMPLEMENTATION – “How to Establish an Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence.”

    Andy Fitze’s keynote focuses on the “AI Centre of Excellence” – the practical steps and components to prepare an organization for a successful AI journey. Finding the right focus, developing a vision, managing expectations, attracting and building talent, developing a technical infrastructure, building external partnerships and internal networks, and considering ethics are just some of the most fundamental components of embedding AI in an organization.

    An AI center of excellence is a seemingly complex puzzle with many pieces that must fit together. Andy Fitze puts the pieces of this puzzle together to provide clarity on what an organization needs to do to successfully embark on an AI journey. The keynote will focus on four aspects:

    • Determining the purpose and focus of AI.
    • Defining the requirements for essential resources
    • Defining the process
    • The role of executives

    In 2015, Andy Fitze was awarded the Swiss CIO Award as the best IT manager in Switzerland. In 2020, Andy Fitze is named as “Top 100 Global Thought Leaders and Influencers 2020” and in 2021, Andy Fitze received the award “One of the 100 most influential people in AI worldwide”.

  • AI INVESTMENT / GLOBAL RACE – “The Shakedown Test of AI Investment.”

    In his keynote, Andy Fitze explains the pressures on AI investors. The shakedown test of AI investments is underway. Where our focus is and where we invest our resources is critical for both society and the economy – if not beyond. Let’s explore with Andy Fitze how the climate for AI investment has changed across industries, where the risks and opportunities lie, and how we can ensure that both business and society enjoy the return on investment from AI.

    With the growth of Big Data, cheaper and more powerful computers, and deep learning algorithms, AI funding seems to be coming from all corners of the ecosystem. As both public and private funders begin to understand the capabilities and potential of AI, investment in the industry is skyrocketing from startups, established technology companies, corporations, governments, venture capitalists and consulting firms. Venture capital firms are propelling startups forward and funding the minds behind the projects. Governments provide funding for AI research and development. Corporations are allocating their budgets to purchase and implement cognitive technology solutions. Shed light on the current global investment climate and, in turn, how investments in AI have been rethought and reallocated.

  • TECHNOLOGICAL LEADERSHIP / NEW WORKFORCE – “As AI makes more decisions, the nature of leadership will change”

    In our rapidly and ambiguously changing business environment, where AI has more knowledge and experience and therefore makes better and faster decisions than humans, the nature of effective leadership must be adapted. In his keynote, Andy Fitze will highlight the transformation in leadership that corresponds to the new business environments driven by cognitive technologies for the benefit of business and society.

    • Preparing for the future of business
    • Aligning leadership with increasingly intelligent technologies
    • Practical insights into renewed leadership

  • NEXT INDUSTRY / DIGITAL OPERATION / DARK FACTORY – “How AI is driving primary and secondary sectors.”

    The role of AI in transforming natural resources and raw materials into tangible products is becoming increasingly important. In his keynote, Andy Fitze will show that all sectors of primary and secondary industry are affected. Be it mining, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, manufacturing, construction, heavy industry, food, fashion and fast moving consumer goods.

    Global spending on AI is expected to reach $110 billion in 2024. In primary and secondary industries, this amount is put into the process of transforming raw materials into tangible consumer goods, so it is sometimes difficult to see and understand where AI is supporting final production.

    The role of AI in transforming raw materials into tangible consumer goods where most of us only see the end result, such as the furniture around us, the food on our dining tables, the cosmetics and toiletries in our bathrooms, the clothes we wear, the transportation infrastructure and public transit we use every day, the buildings where we work, shop, and live, and even the equipment and machines that provide energy in our homes.

  • SMART DATA “Data Explosion, but All Hidden in Your Data Center” – “AI & Data: How To Make The Marriage Work”

    In his keynote, Andy Fitze will focus on the interrelationship between data quality, quantity, accessibility, infrastructure, and competency, and how these components can evolve in concert with human cognition to achieve efficiency and productivity for both society and businesses. Data alone is nothing. So is technology. There are many ingredients at play. But even world-class data and technology would not go together without human intervention. In fact, there is no one component that plays a more important role than the other. It is human cognition that can drive the interplay of data and AI in harmony for the benefit of all aspects of our lives.

    Andy Fitze takes a close look at data, AI and the human factor and will highlight topics around data governance, new AI-driven business strategies and data literacy through transparent knowledge and experience sharing.
