Industry Expert

Kristin Lennox, Technical Head of Industrial IOT at Beyond Limits

Kristin Lennox will share her expertise on how Beyond Limits is creating automated solutions with human-like powers of reasoning that magnify the talents and capabilities of humans. Their breakthrough cognitive technology goes beyond conventional AI, blending deep learning and machine learning tools together with symbolic Artificial Intelligence that emulate human intuition to produce cognitive intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence technology is not intended to replace people or their jobs. AI’s job is to take on tasks – difficult, tedious, repetitive, sometimes dangerous, remote, or in challenging environments – so people can work on more important things. Over time, cognitive AI agents can be trusted to interpret their surroundings accurately, analyze real-time data and compare with historical data. They reason like humans to develop strategies, formulate hypotheses, test ideas, predict problems, determine solutions, and carry out remedies to solve problems. AI is intended to magnify the talent, capability, and opportunity of people in a symbiotic partnership, not to replace human talent.

You will not want to miss hearing from Kristin how AI technology can be utilized in your business as a tool to perceive, understand, correlate, learn, teach, reason and solve problems faster than your existing business solutions.
