About this Event
The SingularityU Miami Chapter wraps its three-part online/Zoom artificial intelligence series with two seasoned experts (Philip Evens, Senior Advisor and Fellow at Boston Consulting Group) and Roy Lawrance (Founder and CEO of Applied Data Science, LLC). Both prescribe to a presbyopic technological world view and will candidly share their professional experience and best practices and applications about business and artificial intelligence. Please join us and come with lots of curiosity and questions!
Philip Evans is the author of “Blown to Bits: How the New Economics of Information Transforms Strategy.” In his book, Evans (and co-author Thomas Wurster) argue that with the spread of connectivity and common standards, your customers will increasingly have rich access to a universe of alternatives, your suppliers will exploit direct access to your customers, and focused competitors will pick off the most profitable parts of your value chain. Evan has also co-author various articles in the Harvard Business Review where he received his MBA. Here is one of his TED Talks: http://www.ted.com/talks/philip_evans_how_data_will_transform_business
