Prepare for the Artificial Intelligence revolution at the Business Council of Westchester’s AI Alliance 360, a groundbreaking year of programming launching January 30 at Manhattanville College.

Representatives from two business titans, IBM and Regeneron, will help attendees understand the exciting possibilities that lie within this innovative technology at AI Unveiled: Understanding and Navigating the Future of Intelligent Systems. The morning breakfast event features a caffeine-fueled chat with Bargav Balakrishan, the VP of Industry Modernization at IBM, and Abdul Shaik, the head of data analytics and AI at Regeneron.

The deep dive into AI continues with a Decoding AI Workshop led by Nikhil Jagga, the president and CTO of CMIT Solutions. These industry trailblazers will unravel the mysteries of AI, while giving attendees a glimpse at the cutting-edge strategies transforming their operations.

“The participation of thought leaders from two global companies based in Westchester illustrates how impactful the AI revolution will be. Our goal is to ensure that attendees not only grasp AI’s potential but also safeguard their organizations as we hurtle into the future,” said Marsha Gordon, the BCW’s president and CEO.

Balakrishnan, the lead of banking and industry modernization on IBM Power, will share insights into business strategy and product management as they relate to AI. Shaik will discuss Regeneron’s efforts to unleash the power of data, optimize operations, enhance customer experiences, and fuel innovation. Jagga is a Fortune 500 consulting veteran with a technical acumen that spans IT strategy, management consulting, and cybersecurity.

The AI Alliance 360° will produce a year-long series of in-person and virtual events that will dive deep into the implications of AI, shaking up the very foundations of the business world. AI is quickly becoming the disruptive economic force of our time, akin to the Internet revolution of the past generation.

With this transformation in mind, the BCW is on a mission to decode the mysteries of AI’s power, with events throughout the year like AI in Professional Services: Innovation and Integration; Healing Horizons: Navigating AI in Healthcare’s Transformative Technologies; FutureEd: Harnessing the Power of AI in Academic Innovation; Securing Tomorrow: AI in Cybersecurity and Technology and AI Unleashed: Smart Insights and Innovations to Transforming Marketing Strategies.
