AI Expo North America 2017 has selected Jeff Cotrupe as an event Chair for its upcoming conference in November just after the US Thanksgiving holiday. The event, co-located and concurrent with the Blockchain and IoT Tech expos, will occur 29-30 November 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California, USA.
“Artificial intelligence, machine learning, the Internet of Things, and blockchain are fast becoming integral parts of the world in which we live and work,” said Cotrupe. “It is an honor to be involved with this multi-faceted conference and I will be focusing, in part, on how AI both leverages data and contributes to the overall big data and analytics (BDA) ecosystem.”
The Bot and Virtual Assistant Development Track Cotrupe is chairing occurs on Day 2 of the conference and his featured Speaker content is linked from that page or directly available here.
CIO Review invited Jeff Cotrupe to contribute to its Big Data Special Edition for 2017, and he responded with a piece titled Big Data in Manufacturing: “It’s Not Just for Predictive Maintenance Anymore.” The piece analyzes how big data can synergize data from the Internet of Things (IoT) and other relevant sources to drive commercial decision insight, creating opportunities to grow and retain revenues across the organization.
