Process Reimagined
人工智能時代下的企業流程再造

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

大多數據企業領導者對人工智能的認識還局限於利用傳統的自動化或機器人流程自動化(RPA)技術逐步提升績效。雖然自動執行重複性任務能夠讓員工專注更有價值的工作,但流程全面自動化並不是企業的最终目標。

為了最大限度地發揮人工智能的潜力並成為真正的數字化領導者,企業必須徹底重構其流程,打造能夠不斷自我改進的自我調整“活性流程”,利用機器學習演算法和即時資料進行自我改進。機器能力(機器作為流程變革推動者的能力)的指數級飛躍還將帶來全新的工作崗位和人機協作模式。

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.
