Assistant Professor in Management Science
Lancaster University

In this free webinar, one of the world's leading experts in AI will take you through the latest evolutions in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and how early adopters are applying them for improved forecast accuracy and insight. It's not all about innovation however - you'll learn why the latest algorithms aren't always the best and why simple times series forecasting is sometimes preferable to complex causal models.

You will learn:
  • The new generation of AI algorithms, how they work, and their relevance to forecasting
  • How to choose between 1960s statistics, 1990s shallow AI, and 2020 deep AI for your business forecasting
  • Insights from real world with AI/ML case studies employed by early adopters including Beiersdorf, and Hapag-Lloyd (and why using the latest algorithms is not always advised)
  • The power of forecasting algorithms that learn, adapt to context, and find hidden insights
  • Which type of AI to use for your organization, from simple monthly time series data to complex causal drivers
