In this one-day session, utility industry decision makers will learn how to use the power of Artificial Intelligence + Human Intelligence gathered from their employees to develop corporate strategy. Using the ‘Supermind’, you will be able to create possibilities for possible strategic action, decide which actions to take by considering more options than you traditionally would, sense the external world through trendspotting and futurecasting, factoring in historic structured and unstructured data and, once the strategic plans are being implemented, learn from the experience using real time data/decision making.
