For many businesses - and for society at large - Artificial intelligence brings about both opportunities and threats. By using AI, organizations can learn faster and adapt more quickly to change. How can you leverage AI to bring more value to your customers?

Ash Fontana, our guest speaker, is an expert on exactly that.

His book - The AI-First Company - provided "an executable guide for applying AI to business problems. It’s a playbook made for real companies, with real budgets, that need strategies and tactics to effectively implement AI."


Ash Fontana became one of the most recognized startup investors in the world after launching online investing at AngelList. He then became a Managing Director of Zetta, the first investment fund that focused on AI. The firm was the lead investor in category-defining AI companies such as Kaggle, Domino, Tractable, Lilt and Invenia. He has appeared in Fast Company, Bloomberg, Forbes, CNBC and at the UN.
