TORONTO –Neil Sahota, artificial intelligence (AI) guru and IBM Master Inventor, joins an impressive lineup of thought leaders in blockchain and artificial intelligence at AiDecentralized, the first in a series of global summits initiated by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
A stellar, full-day event designed to connect the AI and blockchain communities, AiDecentralized promises compelling insights into just what’s possible when two revolutionary technologies come together for a common goal. Each is transformative on its own, but together blockchain and AI achieve a synergy that has critical implications for data accountability, security, and oversight.
Sahota is an IBM Master Inventor and World Wide Business Development Leader in the IBM Watson Group. A thought leader in AI, he works with clients and business partners to create next-generation products/solutions powered by Watson. Sahota partners with entrepreneurs to define their products, establish their target markets, and structure their companies. An advocate for the global good that can come from AI, his expertise spans multiple industries, including healthcare, life sciences, retail, travel and transportation, energy and utilities, automotive, telecommunications, media/communication, and government.
“AI is being hailed as the 3rd generation of computing,” says Sahota. “A truly transformative technology, and one of the most impactful things ever created, it will change the way we use, and think of, machines.”
AiDecentralized takes place on May 22nd in Toronto at the storied Fairmont Royal York. The five-star event features presentations by the experts in today’s two hottest technologies, including Irakli Beridze, Head of the United Nations Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (UNICRI), Silvio Micali, ACM Turing Award recipient, Lila Tretikov, former Wikimedia CEO, and Marc Lijour, ColliderX and Canadian Blockchain Co-founder.
