Data and artificial intelligence are increasingly crucial for transforming organizations. What if machine intelligence empowering your organization to think, act, innovate, and work differently? 


However, the reality is disparate data, uncertainty business value, bewildering intelligence technologies. To overcome these challenges we need new approaches to combine data, business and technology.


Data and AI experts from ThoughtWorks globally will gather in Beijing this September, share and discuss their thought and practices. There will be a data discovery workshop as well.
