The Minority Report of AI-Powered Executive Summaries

Feeling overwhelmed by information? Join Scania’s Jesper Blomster to learn how AI solutions are revolutionizing the way executives handle ever-growing amounts of data. Jesper will explain how unlike standardized internal data, this engine summarizes diverse, unstructured information. Fueled by AI, it moves through three phases: first, identifying needs and visualizing outputs; second, integrating ad-hoc functionality via text and verbal prompts; and finally, scaling for broader applications and the linking of summaries to financial outcomes. This session promises not to be information overload, but will inspire, spark ideas, and offer insights into AI and automation’s transformative power.
