CANCELED: June PDM – What Inquiring Management Minds Need to Know: The Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, and Security
June 12, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
We regret that this PDM has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Tom Myers, CPIM
What is the Cloud? Are we in it? Can my business use it?
Will robots take over our jobs? Can artificial intelligence help my organization?
How can I protect my technology and information at home? How can I make sure I have an organization that is safe from hackers?
I will answer these questions and more as we explore these subjects from a business manager’s perspective, not from an IT perspective.
In addition, I’ll offer many tips about these topics to help make you both smarter in your personal and business lives and more valuable to your organization.
Whether or not you attended the recent ASCM/ASQ presentation about blockchain, come and find out about these other hot topics in the technology realm.
