Data Governance and Ethics: Enhancing Big Data Responsibly
AI Applications are becoming omnipresent in the workplace. As technology outpaces regulatory reform, the industry must ensure new developments avoid unintended consequences and address ethical concerns.  This panel will discuss the research around ethical questions and some of the principles being adopted around the world.

Robotic Process Automation: Operating in a Human+ World
The explosive growth of Big Data has fueled our ability to develop automation tools to process unprecedented amounts of information. Our speakers will discuss how we utilize robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent process automation (IPA) to streamline workflows, reduce human error and improve data quality to move the intelligence ecosystem forward.

Analytics and Talent: Developing Leaders in Data Science

Data Science has the potential to drive efficiencies, mine new insights and transform businesses, but the field needs a well-trained talent pool to meet the rapidly growing demand to process complex data challenges.  The University of Illinois and companies in the Research Park will discuss how they are working collaboratively to prepare students to move Big Data forward.

Augmented Reality: Moving beyond our Imagination

The latest augmented reality tools are transforming how we interact with the world around us and creating real-world utility in agriculture, health care, manufacturing and more with developments right here in Champaign-Urbana.

Value of AI: What technologies have the most value and why?
