Alternative: AI & Blockchain for professional services 2018

Alternative AI & Blockchain for Professional Services will help you cut through the hype about both technologies and focus on their business benefits.

This one-day event is specifically for law firms, accountancy practices, consultancy practices and corporate legal departments with an interest in artificial intelligence (AI) and block chain and their potential to transform the professional services market.

AI 201 – taking your understanding to the next level:

More mature and better understood than blockchain, AI still presents challenges. We’ll provide a non-technical overview of the technology and its latest developments and uses, allowing you to hit the ground running for the rest of the day.

An introduction to the capabilities of blockchain for those who want a broad view of the opportunities available from this disruptive technology. How it works, what it does, why it’s different and who is using it now, and how.

Alternative AI & Blockchain for Professional Services will focus on the immediate outcomes for professional services, by providing “everything you need to know” about AI and blockchain, in one place in one day.

The objective content will come from law firms, accountancy practices, management/property/strategy consultancies, in-house legal teams, academics, advisors and vendors – the entire AI & blockchain universe.  The programme will be a mix of strategic plenaries, panel debates, case studies and round table discussions with AI & blockchain covered independently in streams and breakouts.   The entire programme will focus on the here and now, not what could happen in 10 years’ time.

The pace of technological change poses a significant challenge for incumbent market leaders. A strategy of investing in tech incubators, or directly in start-ups, is a path that many firms have chosen, and one that many have rejected – a path that requires big decisions and big changes to organisational models and cultures.

What are the reasons that firms have invested, or chosen not to invest? How, if at all, should your firm interact with incubators and/or start-ups?

How must you adapt your processes to succeed in this strategy? What additional advantages do you get from investing in tech products over simply purchasing them?

Delegates will leave able to make informed decisions about both AI & blockchain – the opportunities, the threats and the impact on professional services now.
