How Artifical Intelligence Will Transform Business

Surrey Chambers of Commerce have been representing and supporting businesses across Surrey for many years. As a membership business its aim is to provide services and benefits that add value to the diverse range of business based in the region. After a few years break, we are bringing back this forum in force, newly designed for 2020!

Surrey is a vibrant county with businesses that are leaders in all different aspects of technology; from manufacturing and engineering; from industry to academia; from space to medicine. The Technology Forum has been created to support these organisations and to give them the opportunity to meet, develop and share ideas.
Our Headline Sponsor

The organisational DNA of today’s enterprises is shifting to become increasingly digital. Technology has lots of business benefits and isn’t just a task for the IT department – it can play a vital strategic role in supporting your entire organisation. There is no good reason to delay getting to grips with cloud architecture, IT security, data management & compliance. Many organisations are reliant on disconnected legacy systems and infrastructure that aren’t built for this new world of IT. As well as focusing on increasing collaboration, leaders must be forward thinking and make innovative changes instead of keeping the costs. Digital transformation is at the heart of business planning and is putting an end to silos. We understand SME’s and our team have a huge amount of expertise to make technology work for your business.

We’re seeing tremendous momentum as companies continue embracing digital transformation. As a premier IT infrastructure partner, IntraLAN has been helping 1000’s of small businesses since 1995, speeding digital transformation and increasing profitability across a broad range of technologies. With a dedicated Helpdesk and Account Management team, our customer-centric approach has consistently achieved satisfaction scores of 95%+ in independent surveys. To our clients we are their IT partner, not their IT supplier.
About this year's theme
While the changes that AI could bring are not yet fully understood, we know it has the capacity to change work as the world knows it. The impact of artificial intelligence in business contexts isn't always clear-cut or easy to understand. However, today's business leaders should know a few things in order to be conversant on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI). What's the basic premise of AI, and how does it work? How will AI impact jobs and workers? What skills will be needed in an automated workplace?
