The growth of AI and data analytics is rapidly transforming the ways that companies develop insights. CRIC’s AI and Data Analytics Thought Leadership Council in partnership with ESOMAR will be hosting a one-day summit on May 21, 2020 at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto that will feature individuals who are leading this change. This event is targeted to managers and senior leaders on the client side and from agencies who are responsible for developing data-driven strategies, gathering deeper insights from data and leveraging new tools and techniques to enhance ROI.

The Council is seeking presentations from industry leaders that demonstrate how AI and Data Analytics are disrupting the way companies use data to develop insights. We are seeking original presentations on:

  • How AI and machine learning are creating new opportunities for generating insights
  • New approaches for extracting insights from unstructured data
  • How client-side insights professionals are growing the insights function to include data analytics and AI
  • Best data governance practices – ensuring high quality data and responsible use of that data
  • Unique data sources and innovative approaches to gathering data
  • Assessing for and controlling for potential bias in data sources and in the application of AI
  • The blending of multiple data sources for deeper insights

This is an excellent opportunity for presenters to build their profile as a leader in the use of AI and Data Analytics for generating insights. It will also be an opportunity to network with other leaders in the industry.
