The Artificial Future of Real Business @ Accenture Shenzhen Innovation Hub

Thursday, August 8, 2019 • 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Artificial Intelligence has gone from science fiction to mission critical. Advances in hardware and software have finally reached the tipping point, allowing businesses to use A.I. to sift through enormous amounts of data, automate repetitive tasks and make consumer interfaces easier to use. Everything from supervising customer service call centers to helping consumers find what to buy in online stores is being impacted by A.I.

We’re excited to partner with Accenture at their Innovation Hub in Shenzhen to host some of the most exciting and award-winning companies to talk about how artificial intelligence will change business.

The cutting-edge entrepreneurs we’ll be talking with include:

  • Dr. Miles Wen - CEO and founder of Fano Labs. They’re using natural language processing for Chinese dialects such as Cantonese. Fano Labs is backed by legendary billionaire Li Ka-shing’s Horizons Ventures, which previously invested in Siri and Viv.
  • Matt Scott - CTO and co-founder Malong Technologies. Focused on computer vision for the retail industry, Malong Technologies is backed by SoftBank China and Accenture.
  • Long Wang - VP, Tencent Cloud. Long is leading Tencent’s move into enterprise services and where it’s channeling its artificial intelligence to help businesses with cloud-based services.
This event is invitation only.
