to announce the latest in its series of one-day events on 'Real AI',
which we think will be an eye-opener for those who are not fully up

Organiser Dr Gilbert Owusu, Head of Resource Management Technologies

fraud detection, speech recognition, fault diagnosis, game planning
and resource management. Their applicability stems from the
flexibility they provide in modelling and solving real world 
Real AI will provide delegates with insights (case studies) into 
AI to solve business problems. The case studies will outline the
business problem and the steps taken to develop business applications

understanding what AI can offer, and what it is doing right now".
