Digital transformation is a journey that is perceived to be rewarding yet challenging. Industries understand that transformation requires new approaches to complement conventional methods. With the inception of the IR 4.0, technologies and environments swiftly evolved and transformed among which is the artificial intelligence (AI) that witnessed a rapid progression with great impact. AI exists at various maturity levels; nonetheless, it has already changed human lives. While most companies succeed in applying AI technologies, several companies stumble trying to leverage its value.



This symposium created a platform to discuss the various capabilities and potential applications of AI as one of the main enablers for digital transformation. The diverse programme brought the voice of industry leaders who contributed to the evolution and deployment of AI technologies in various sectors. 

It also created a venue for professionals to network and exchange success stories and challenges through practical case studies.

“Our industry is well established with data infrastructure containing over 100 years of information. The power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) unleashes unlimited opportunities for harnessing knowledge, driving decision-making, and revealing unexploited resources. Ultimately allowing us to view our operations and data through a far advanced set of eyes that well revolutionise our understanding of engineering. This symposium aims to support our industry to get ahead of the curve and reap the benefits of applying AI. It will provide a platform to exchange our experiences in the pursuit of finding answers, overcoming impediments and apply the best practices to advance and enhance our operational performance and remain on the frontier of the incredibly fast-paced progress of AI.”
