Artificial Intelligence : Threat or Opportunity ?


Virtual personal assistants, smart cars, fraud detection, online customer support, music and movie recommendation services... Artificial intelligence is no longer a theory: it’s practice. It is practised in more and more companies that invest in the field. Their goal? Accelerate development, improve processes, increase quality... In other words: AI represents an enormous potential for securing a competitive advantage. And Luxembourg in all this? Can government and companies play this game? Do they have the human and financial means to engage in it?

This event will be organised in 3 parts. 

In the fisrt part Mr Anand Rao, our keynote speaker, will demonstrate the reality of AI in today’s world, and the challenges that face economic and political decision makers. He will also engage on stage with a panel of Luxembourg decision makers about the future of AI in the Luxembourg context. Anand Rao is a partner with PwC’s US Advisory practice and Global AI Lead – PwC Data & Analytics, with over 26 years of industry and consulting experience, helping senior executives structure, solve and manage critical issues facing their organisations. 

In the second part we will have the pleasure of inviting Mr Jorge Sanz, Head of Business Analytics and Regulatory Compliance Technologies at LIST, to join the stage for a conversation between two AI experts. This will be an opportunity to unpack some of the themes raised in Part I with the benefit of Mr Sanz Luxembourg/local viewpoint. 

In the third part, both experts will be joined on stage by 3 private sector stakeholders, users or beneficiaries of A.I. for a panel discussion. Those three stakeholder are: Nasir Zubairi (The LHoFT), Robert Glaesener (Talkwalker) and Robert Spicer (vyzvoice).

Mr Pierre Gramegna, Minister of Finance will honour us with his presence and open the conference.
