Wu, considered a visionary in his field, is on the forefront of AI and machine learning research. He is a champion for how companies can make analytics and data science a transformative competency in a business.

In his address, “How AI Enables the Future of Business Intelligence,” Wu will map out how distributors can build their analytics and business intelligence programs to more powerfully predict the future and prescribe actions to improve results. He will outline how to apply the four key applications of AI (internet, perceptual, autonomous and business) in describing how to leverage big data sets and AI models to drive business results. Wu will also explain how AI increasingly will drive distributors’ analyses of transactions and big data, creating models that get smarter over time using a variety of machine learning algorithms.
