The conference, scheduled for Sept. 24-26 in Orlando, Fla., brings together experts in an array of industries to explore what’s possible in business transformation.

Wu will lead a workshop, “How to Get Your Enterprise Ready for the AI Revolution,” which addresses how businesses must change and adapt to the disruption created by AI before truly realizing its tangible business value and benefits.
