The transformative power of AI takes centre stage at 2023 Converge Summit

Business leaders, C-suite executives, and senior managers across industries will converge at The Forum in Bryanston, Sandton, on 27 September 2023 as 4Sight Holdings presents the 2023 Converge AI Summit.

The conference takes place against a backdrop of rapid advancement and innovation driven by artificial intelligence (AI) in corporate and industrial business environments.

“In the last six months, the world has changed considerably due to the impact that automation in data processing and generative AI is having on society at large and businesses in particular,” says Tertius Zitzke, CEO at 4Sight Holdings.

“The reality is that AI is here, and the time to adopt this technology is now. If business leaders hesitate to make the decision to invest and start their journey to AI-enabled operations today, they risk losing ground to their competitors.”

The event, themed 'Future Forward 4Sight', will host a prominent panel of speakers who will share significant insights with the 300 delegates in attendance, empowering them to accelerate their digital AI transformation journeys and future-proof their businesses.

“The one-day, in-person conference will include two keynote speakers, including futurist and writer Mitch Ilbury, who will open the event, and a motivational talk from global speaker and author Richard Wright after the lunch break,” explains Willie Ackerman, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at 4Sight Holdings.

Attendees will also hear keynote addresses from the technology vendor event sponsors, covering topics such as AI in business and building your AI transformation journey.

The breakaway sessions that follow will span three streams – operational technology, information technology, and business environment. These streams will cover customer use case presentations and 33 technology presentations, which will all include a link to AI in different vertical sector and market contexts.

“Attendees will experience real-world examples showcasing how companies successfully integrate AI and other advanced digital technologies into their operations to advance their digital capabilities and improve their operations,” continues Zitzke.

Experts from 4Sight Holdings and the event's strategic partners will cover topics related to digitalising business across all major vertical markets and industries to unlock the power of visibility, enhance efficiencies, minimise risk, and maximise profitability.

“Speakers will also take a future-forward look at AI's role in businesses, with presentations that cover the application of AI in the industrial metaverse, workplace modernisation in preparation for AI, and the future of an ESG-integrated business with AI at its heart, among others,” Ackerman adds.

“Multiple streams will demonstrate how 4Sight combines market leading technologies with our unique approach and the domain expertise held by our People to help businesses make the quantum leap to Enterprise 5.0 organisations of the future, no matter the industry in which they operate,” concludes Zitzke.
