Notre club a la grande opportunité d’accueillir Jenny Watkins (EMBA 14), spécialiste de la transition numérique, le mardi 12 décembre, au BCG.

AI has become the new buzzword de jour: Google has changed their slogan from “Mobile First” to “AI First”. VCs, start-ups and established companies alike are all getting into the gold rush of AI.

But what is AI exactly?  In this session, we will define AI in concrete terms and look at AI in the context of Digital Transformation. How does AI fit into a company’s digital transformation roadmap? What examples can we look at of businesses deploying AI today? How do the “godfathers” of AI in Silicon Valley perceive its evolution in how we do business in the next 2 years?  We’ll go through practical examples of business application and discuss the steps we need to take to be ready for the next curve of singularity.

Jenny has worked with some of the world’s most admired companies, driving cultural transformation in customer experience and digital innovation, most recently as Global Head of Innovation for the AXA Group in Paris. She has lived in Silicon Valley and currently consults with executives to develop their own digital transformation roadmaps through her firm, Tadpole Consulting.  Prior to that, Jenny lived in New York, serving as Vice President for Customer Experience at Wells Fargo, one of the largest banks in the USA, working through the height of the financial crisis, re-imagining the customer experience for 8 million customers.

The technological singularity (also, simply, the singularity) is the hypothesis that the invention of artificial superintelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.
Many notable personalities, including Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk consider the uncontrolled rise of artificial intelligence as a matter of alarm and concern for humanity’s future. The consequences of the singularity and its potential benefit or harm to the human race have been hotly debated by various intellectual circles.
