Attend this OPEN PUBLIC lecture from Prof Miklos Vasarhelyi

Everyone from CIOs to Marketers, from Supply Chain to Insurance professionals are often faced with the daunting task of determining what technologies are relevant to their business -- and what isn't -- and this is occurring at a rate never seen before. Today, how and when a company leverages cutting-edge technology can create a distinct advantage over the competition.

This essential lecture examines the most talked about emerging technologies today: blockchain, robotic process automation (RPA), and artificial intelligence (AI). It breaks down how these technologies are making an impact, why business professionals should pay attention to them and some insights as to how they can introduce cutting-edge tech into their business strategies.

This talk will delve into the fundamentals of these emerging technologies and shine a light on the ways in which leading businesses are using cutting-edge tech to boost business growth and performance -- from improving back-end processes to better serving their companies' customers.
