WORLD WAR DATA: HOW DATA, ANALYTICS & AI WILL DOMINATE THE BUSINESS BATTLEGROUND OF THE FUTURE

For decades, companies have worked to combine old-fashioned human instinct with new waves of data and analytical tools. Today, more business decisions are based on data and analytics than ever before – and the rise of cloud computing, unprecedented data sets (eg through the internet of things), machine learning and artificial intelligence means that in the future data will be a resource more precious than the gold, coal or oil of previous industrial eras.

From his experience as Facebook’s CEO for Australia and New Zealand, Stephen Scheeler brings his unique perspective to how data and analytics will transform both the customer experience and the basis of competition in dozens of industries – from consumer products and retail, to banking, media, education and travel.
