The CTO of Teradata Stephen Brobst recently conducted a session on the future of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Telenor Pakistan headquarters ‘345’ in Islamabad.
Telenor employees and various executives from across industries, such as Irfan Wahab Khan, CEO Telenor Pakistan and President OICCI, Haroon Bhatti; Chief Business Officer Telenor Pakistan; Badar Khushnood, Cofounder and VP at Bramerz; Qazafi Qayyum, Country Manager Teradata; Khimde Ando, CEO Mitsubishi Corporation; Brig. Tahir Mehmood, Director ISPR; AVM Faaiz Amir; Vice Chancellor Air University; Barkaan Saeed, Ex-Chairman PASHA; and Retd. Brig. Saleem Ahmed Moeen, CEO SecureTech.
At the event, participants learned about the future of artificial intelligence, the role of emerging technologies, differences between deep and shallow learning and their application techniques, and the opportunities of using advanced analytics to create high-value outcomes.
Stephen Brobst speaking on the occasion said, “We have entered a new era of analytics with machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms beginning to deliver on the long-promised advancement into self-learning systems. These approaches allow us to solve previously intractable problems with completely new attack plans. The appetite of deep learning algorithms for vast amounts of data and the ability to derive intelligence from diverse sets of noisy data allows us to go far beyond previous capabilities in what we used to call advanced analytics.”
He also said that in order to be successful with the use of new technologies one needs to fully understand the capabilities and limitations. He stressed on the need to develop new skill sets in order to harness the power of deep learning to create business value in an enterprise.
Irfan Wahab Khan speaking about the emerging technology said, “In our times of Siri, Alexa, and Google, Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence are not a part of science fiction anymore; they are our reality. For tech companies like Telenor and Teradata, the real charm of AI and ML technologies is their ability to recognize patterns and synthesize large amounts of data.”
According to him, Telenor is not only harnessing the strength of AI and Advanced Analytics for its own commercial use but is also enabling other organizations to benefit from the technology by offering incisive Market Research insights and ability to run targeted campaigns on its diverse Advertising assets. He said, “The fact that these technologies get smarter with time as increased amounts of data is fed to them makes them a cornerstone for all future technologies.”
