The Future Is Now: CDW Tech Talk Highlights the Real-World Potential for AI

The CDW Tech Talk series highlights how artificial intelligence isn’t just futuristic — with the right infrastructure, it could create major benefits right now.

In its third week, the 2021 CDW Tech Talk Series is thinking about a big-picture technology and how it can change things up for businesses right now.

On Tuesday, March 2, Manoj Suvarna, the category business lead for high-performance computing and artificial intelligence at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, will discuss how AI could work for many types of organizations, and the steps that businesses curious about implementing AI within their own organization could take to adopt it effectively.

There’s a lot of potential for artificial intelligence to help businesses solve important problems in fields as diverse as banking, agriculture and retail, but many organizations are still early in their process of deciding how to implement it — or whether they even should. Suvarna will lay out the tools and dynamic infrastructure needed to properly build and manage an AI solution, and discuss how an effective approach could work in the real world.

Tuesday’s event will also focus on something a little less artificial and a little more human: how people impact cybersecurity, including through such things as phishing and social engineering.

Gabriel Whalen, an information security field solution architect with CDW, will discuss the processes, strategies and technologies needed to keep organizations secure, as well as what businesses can do to respond when a cybersecurity incident emerges.

And there’s a lot more to come.
