Speaker: Catherine Williams, Qualtrics

Abstract:
Machine learning has the potential to move the needle for many businesses, but it's challenging for leaders to know where to start — and what's fact vs. fiction. We'll talk about the myths and realities of establishing a machine learning strategy, building expert teams, and delivering business outcomes, illustrated by examples from the Qualtrics iQ and beyond.

Speaker: John Le, Qualtrics

Abstract:
We all want to bring the power of ML to our masses of customers. This talk is about the many little details that have to come together to make great intelligent products that anyone can use. Where each individual detail may look small, but the whole of what they accomplish creates an amazing experience.
