MALAYSIA, July 21, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - The potential of AI is far from being fully exploited thus making now the best time for Malaysia to sprint to the front of the race.

According to digitalnews.com 45 per cent of organizations in Malaysia have plans to adopt AI within two years, the 2nd highest among Asia/Pacific countries.

According to capco.com, 82 per cent of businesses in Malaysia prioritize skilling and reskilling of workers in the future. They plan to invest as much, or even more, in human capital as in new technology. according to capco.com

The event will focus on topics such as AI-driven innovation in the new normal; the road to efficient deployment of AI; human and machine interface to detect cyber threats and risks; how data virtualization accelerates ML and AI projects; AI framework and technological infrastructure strategies for the Malaysian and APAC Government authorities; powering data with AI and much more.
