Corporate investments in artificial intelligence now near $40 billion globally. And AI deployments have grown substantially year-on-year, with no signs of slowing. As more businesses realize the value of AI, and as these technologies have become easier to develop, corporate adoption has exploded.

Now, almost half of all CIOs have installed or at least tested AI systems – a sizable increase from just 33 percent one year ago. But how can businesses ensure that their investments are being maximized? How can they unlock and accelerate all of the opportunities created through artificial intelligence?

Enter ai.now by Fractal Analytics. Fractal Analytics’ ai.now is the only industry event of its kind, designed to help Fortune 500 attendees from a wide-range of industries – CPG, financial services, healthcare, insurance, telecom, and retail – learn how to practically implement artificial intelligence for their business. ai.now explores AI best practices in business, identifying present-day strategies that boost revenue and enhance operations.

Fractal Analytics’ ai.now takes place in New York City on July 18. It will help businesses learn practical techniques for maximizing their AI investments, applications, deployments and technology.
