Keynote: There's no I in AI (yet)

There's no intelligence in current AI systems, but apparently we think there is, and then get surprised when it gives wrong answers.
Why is this, and what will happen when we get real intelligent systems?
This opening keynote gives an introduction to AI as we currently know it, examines how we interact with it, and envisions the consequences of real AI emerging.

AI in your project team

AI tools will make us dangerously lazy, unless we understand their limitations and learn how to utilize them.

Join Dennis for a real-life case that shows how Generative AI can both supercharge your processes and threaten to power down critical thinking, leading to mediocrity.

Key characteristics of successful project teams and organisations

The more we look at the dozens of Project and Product Management frameworks the more we should realise that they are all cooking from the same ingredients. What if we tried distilling them?

Can we find the common denominators that different methodologies want us to do?

Adrian tried to distil them from a slightly agile angle.

Join him to see if your organisation is missing any of the characteristics.
