Akron, OH—After over ten years of working with the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, and business analytics, companies proceed to focus on operational adjustments needed to remain on top of today’s growing technology. On Sept. 23-24, The University of Akron’s (UA) Center for Information Technologies and Analytics (CITA) will have its fourth annual Business Analytics Innovation Summit, which is held online to concentrate on analytics in action.

In a 2020 Deloitte survey, over half of senior executives estimated that AI would remodel their sectors for at least 1-3 years, and three-quarters within 3-5 years. Speakers on this year’s agenda will assist companies in planning for these impending changes. Case studies with real examples of firms that are successfully implementing analytics and AI tools to make improvements in business processes along with accomplished data-driven benefits will be presented by speakers.
