Featured Speakers
Agility, Dynamic Metadata & Self-service
Guillermo Guemez, CIO, Banorte, Mexico
Customers expect personalized, consistent and value-added experiences across all products, services and channels.
Bringing together fragmented data to understand customers is virtually impossible without the fine-grained control of data that only metadata provides.
In today’s digital, data-intensive world, metadata needs to be dynamic and needs to regulate data processing, not just passively record the state of data.
With dynamic metadata, businesses can achieve agility by automating data pipelines, providing transparency and control over data processing.
Dynamic metadata significantly accelerates enterprise sales and marketing efforts, cloud computing adoption, and risk management. It also improves controls over line-of-business operations.
Ed Sheehy will lead a panel discussion of Ab Initio customers describing how they use dynamic metadata to control complex data ecosystems, provide agility, and unleash data’s business value.
Session 16C, 11:30am - 12:30pm, July 22, 2021

Operationalizing AI with Platforms
Juan Tello, CDO, Principal, Deloitte & Will Bible, CDO, Partner, Deloitte, USA
As a leader in AI, Deloitte consistently helps our clients address their needs and thrive in respective market areas by harnessing the power of AI. When we asked ourselves the question of how we can apply the exponential power of AI to improve things that matter to us as a business, it opened up a number of exciting opportunities. While we have been on the AI journey for more than 5 years now, we amplified our AI investments over the last 2 years which accelerated the business outcomes. We successfully activated some key use-cases in our consulting and audit businesses around work force automation and AI driven intelligent delivery. In this session, we talk about our journey in operationalizing AI using our AI platform, CortexAI™ and deploying AI into Omnia, our audit & assurance platform, the use-cases we were able to successfully execute on, and the lessons we learned along the way.
Session 2B, 10:15am - 11:15am, July 20, 2021

Transforming The Insurance Industry With Big Data, Machine Learning, And AI

By: Randy Bean
June 7, 2021

An emerging wave of “Insurtech” solutions companies are seeking to transform the business of insurance through the introduction of Big Data, Machine Learning, and AI capabilities. 
When insurance providers tap into the vast repositories of Big Data that is available to them and combine this data with machine learning and AI capabilities, they can develop new policies that can reach new audiences. An April 2021 report published by GlobalData forecast that AI platform revenues within insurance would grow by 23% to $3.4 billion between 2019 and 2024. 
It was in this context that I recently spoke with Paul Ford, Co-Founder and CEO of Traffk — one of the emerging Insurtech leaders that is employing Big Data, machine learning, and AI to help transform the insurance industry.
