Process Reimagined
人工智能时代下的企业流程再造

Many companies have taken a narrow view of AI, using traditional automation to achieve incremental improvements. To maximize potential of AI, companies must reimagine and create self-optimizing “living processes” to achieve continuous improvement. This exponential leap would unlock entirely new way for process, data and workforce to work together and deliver profound results

大多数企业领导者对人工智能的认识还局限于利用传统的自动化或机器人流程自动化(RPA)技术逐步提升绩效。虽然自动执行重复性任务能够让员工专注更有价值的工作,但流程全面自动化并不是企业的最终目标。

为了最大限度地发挥人工智能的潜力并成为真正的数字化领导者,企业必须彻底重构其流程,打造能够不断自我改进的自适应“活性流程”,利用机器学习算法和实时数据进行自我改进。机器能力(机器作为流程变革推动者的能力)的指数级飞跃还将带来全新的工作岗位和人机协作模式。

Building Smart Cities: Practical Experiences from 3 Continents

Cities today are challenged with Rapid Urbanization, Economic Constraints, and Environmental Sustainability. In order to stay ahead of this urbanization, cities worldwide are becoming digital—or evaluating strategies for doing so— making use of the unprecedented opportunities possible from rapidly expanding connectivity around the globe. Digital transformation (or digitization) requires city leaders to rethink how their agencies operate—and interoperate—to maintain city infrastructures and deliver citizen services efficiently. They should understand that a host of new technology strategies are available to help them do that. Digitization necessitates a combined understanding of government, citizen, and business processes in order to apply the appropriate echnology strategies and architectures that will connect everything—people, data, actions, devices, machines—as well as embrace analytics and take a holistic approach to data security and privacy that spans technology, operations, and culture. In this session, we will look at examples from around the world on how cities are tackling their challenges on the journey to becoming Smart Digital Cities.
