The Future of Design and Make: Harnessing AI to Stay Ahead of the Curve

The rapid evolution of generative AI has posed both a challenge and a transformative opportunity for industries. As AI becomes a strategic priority, spending on these technologies reflects a shift towards integrating AI-driven innovations. The journey here involves significant advancements in AI capabilities, moving from basic automation to sophisticated generative models that create, predict, and enhance outcomes.

AI models require large training datasets to be the most effective but no one firm has sufficient data creating a potential barrier to the next level of AI that could truly transform industries. Staying ahead of the curve requires continuous adaptation, leveraging AI to maintain a competitive edge.

Design-and-make industries, such as architecture, engineering, construction, product design, manufacturing, and media, face the unique challenge of bridging the digital and physical realms through complex human collaboration. Executives in these fields focus on resilience, workforce development, and sustainability. As AI continues to shape the future of design and production, those who effectively harness its potential will lead the way in achieving sustainable and innovative outcomes.

  • What are the primary challenges industries face in integrating AI into existing workflows and systems?
  • How can companies balance the need for innovation with the necessity of maintaining operational stability during AI implementation?
  • How can organizations stay ahead of the AI curve and continuously adapt to emerging AI advancements and opportunities?
  • The trust factor and ensuring organizations are leveraging your data responsibly

This session is specifically curated for our CIO, CTO, CISO and VP customers. Special exceptions will be made for those Chiefs and Principals of AI, IT Strategy, Cyber Security, Technology Strategists or Architects.
