Edgar Perez Bringing the Light for Digital Transformation, Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Machine and Deep Learning to Dubai, London, Singapore and New York.

Despite the countless articles we read in the press about the impending demise of millions of workers across all industries, the application of Artificial Intelligence (A) today is in its very early stages. Even the most optimistic supporters of this technology will agree that achieving singularity, the moment when a computer will be as smart as a human, is still many decades away.

Furthermore, studies have shown that firms tend to expect that AI’s future effects on total head count will be minor or positive. For all the tremendous achievements we see today, though, these rely on very narrowly focused applications of AI, which cannot be considered general intelligence.

However, these technologies will have a great impact on businesses as we move along. Bringing the most instructive and inspiring programs in these subjects to Dubai, New York, London and Singapore is Edgar Perez, well-known author and speaker on cutting-edge technologies:

· The Ultimate Business Disruptor: Quantum Computing

Classical computing was invented in the 1940s; the advent of Quantum Computing (QC) will make these computers look painfully slow. Calculations that would take longer than a human’s life span to work out on a classic computer can be completed in a matter of hours or minutes with QC. Furthermore, QC will enable solving a set of problems that couldn’t be solved before. QC’s benefits include efficiently simulating new drug molecules and dramatically reducing the time complex financial calculations take, among many others. For optimization, sampling or search problems, this promises dramatic speedups. Mr. Perez will entertain your audience while revealing why Quantum Computing will disrupt companies in every industry.

· The Artificial Intelligence Breakthroughs that are Changing the World

Artificial intelligence has been referred as the general ability of a computer or robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. Through a comprehensive review of the latest artificial intelligence breakthroughs, Mr. Perez will offer his insights on how these advancements will impact businesses and the human race in general for years to come, and more specifically, how companies can leverage the plethora of available resources to start implementing solutions to problems that only a few years ago belonged to the realm of science fiction. Mr. Perez will reveal why artificial intelligence is the present and the future.

· Achieving Deep Impact with “State-of-the-art” Deep Learning

Deep learning has enabled many practical applications of artificial intelligence in today’s organizations. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, more effective medical diagnoses, even better movie recommendations, are all here today. Mr. Perez will identify what organizations need to do today to embrace the future, starting with the basics: empowering their employees and turbocharging the organization’s data strategy. Once these two important tasks are accomplished, organizations can then launch pilots for the most promising opportunities, leveraging “state of the art” cases from today’s global innovators such as Google, Facebook, Apple and Tesla. Mr. Perez will show organizations how to kick start their deep learning transformation.

· Social Engineering: The “Weakest Human Link” in Cybersecurity

Social engineering involves tricking your employees into breaching security protocols or giving away information, most often over the telephone or via email. Social engineering exploits human weaknesses rather than technology, preying upon people’s propensity towards trust in particular. Often, these exploits are used to gather information to support a more targeted cyberattack, with the initial forays based on the premise of ‘little and often’ so as not to cause concern. Employees at all levels, including senior executives, are vulnerable. Mr. Perez will explain why by improving employee awareness and introducing simple technical measures, organizations can protect themselves against social engineering techniques and the risk of a cyberattack and its potential impact on business, customers and data.

· The Importance of the Cybersecurity Framework for Directors and CEOs

An email embedded with malware. Security systems hacked by thieves. Credit card numbers stolen from store purchases. There’s certainly no shortage of examples when it comes to data security breaches and the havoc they wreak on business. No wonder then that nearly a third of CEOs in KPMG’s latest global survey identified cyber security as the issue having the biggest impact on their companies today. Every organization should apply a Cybersecurity Framework for analyzing cyber security, and ideally it should be integrated into an organization’s existing enterprise risk framework. The key is making it part of the mainstream of risk management within an organization. The most innovative companies today have recognized that cyber security is a customer experience and revenue opportunity, not just a risk that needs to be managed. Mr. Perez will explain why this must done across the entire organization and why the CEO and Board of Directors have the most important role to play.
