Topic & Abstract


Application of artificial intelligence and big data to deploy and respond ahead of time


The COVID-19 pandemic has sped up the time needed for the global digital transformation
from several years to several months. Facing the ever-changing market environment,
Taiwanese companies must enhance their digital immunity to strengthen their overall
market competitiveness. Artificial intelligence (AI) and data analysis can process a large
amount of data, discover the relationship between multiple variables and factors, and assist
enterprises in making business decisions and realizing large-scale precision marketing.
What is the key to success that drives this transformation, what role will AI play in it, and
what operational concepts or implementation processes can be provided to enterprises for
reference? Dr. Shou-de Lin will leverage his practical knowledge on AI and big data to share
how to realize advanced deployment and respond to an uncertain future!
