WE are in a world where everything is going faster. Consider, historically, the time it's taken to reach an audience of 50 million for any product; a car was 62 years, a TV was 22 years, today you can reach 50 million in days, tomorrow it will be hours. Now add to this the truth that tech years are like dog years. All in all, things are going faster. In this world of Big Data and AI how do you keep up; how do you go faster? The SPEEDup of Everything will talk about some AI use cases, the problem with data, how AI is going to help us, and how you get your AI going faster. Obviously there is some IBM stuff in here, but you're going to learn a lot about the things you should be thinking about and how IBM can accelerate this journey. Hint: It's not just put GPUs behind everything.
