Artificial Intelligence and Agile Projects/Project Management (C193-200406-DNR)

The 1-Hour Dinner and Learning Meeting provides an opportunity to know about how Artificial Intelligence could revolutionize Agile Projects and Project Management.  

Registration closing on Thursday February 27, 2020 4:00 P.M.



From software development to construction to logistics and finance, every company has projects that need planning, managing and monitoring, but the tools we use to do that are often complex, designed for specialists and don’t do as much as they could to warn about potential problems.

Could AI-powered decision support systems and automation make more of your projects successful by reducing costs and mistakes, analyzing risks, making things more efficient or keeping things on time and on budget?

The participants will learn:

  • A definition and a brief history of Artificial Intelligence and the effect of AI in our world since it was first introduced
  • Explore the environment of AI in Project Management
  • Artificial Intelligence and Agile Projects
  • Case Study: AI in a software development industry
