How to Apply AI Webinar


AI isn’t something only other companies use. Nor is it something only other agencies do. Every company can become an AI company. Every developer can be an AI developer. And the core currency of AI is data – data you probably already have.

In this webinar masterclass, part of our Age of AI series in partnership with Microsoft, we’ll consider the practical steps of turning the data you have into the AI services you need, and learn how to turn those services into competitive advantage.

We’ll explore the range of tools available in Microsoft Azure, from simple, sophisticated development models to Azure Machine Learning and Databricks to empower your development teams.

Then we’ll answer your questions on making data an integral part of what you do.


Face detection. Image recognition. Smart moderators that detect potentially offensive content. AI is ready and waiting to be applied to your business now. It could empower your people and make them more effective. It could build deeper relationships with your customers or make your operations more efficient.

But if AI is to make its presence felt in every organisation, your data needs to be democratised and humanised. This session will explore ways of doing that.


Phil Harvey, Senior Cloud Solution Architect for Data & AI at Microsoft UK will lead the webinar and take your questions.
