Artificial Intelligence (AI) has long been a captivating yet enigmatic subject, often hidden behind layers of complexity and buzzwords. However, the realm of AI is not as distant as it might seem.

The AI Summit Pre-Conference is designed to demystify AI and its practical applications. During the day-long event, the different facets of AI will be broken down and explained, helping attendees gain a high-level understanding of the technology as it stands today, as well as a starting point for integrating AI into their business operations.

Let’s take a look at what the AI Summit Pre-Conference is all about, why attendees should attend, and who will benefit from attending.

Overview of AI Summit

The agenda for the event is centered around these primary objectives:

  • Defining the role of AI (specifically Generative AI/ChatGPT)
  • Understanding how Microsoft Copilot works with Dynamics 365 and Power Platform
  • Outlining how users can get more done – and faster – by applying AI tools
  • Sharing practical ideas and understanding that can be applied in your workplace

Just like the main Community Summit event, the AI Pre-Conference will have speakers from Microsoft as well as the user community. The program will start off with a keynote panel discussion where you’ll listen to the experts who have already implemented AI technology in their organizations. They’ll talk about real-world applications, pitfalls, lessons learned, and much more.

Additionally, you’ll have a full complement of deep-dive workshops available. These workshops provide the opportunity to witness Copilot in action, showcasing its capabilities and helping you see the big picture, so you’ll know the right questions to ask before rolling out these technologies in your own business.

Understanding Today’s AI

When it comes to AI, there's a lot to unravel. It's a domain that encompasses a diverse array of concepts and technologies. From basic AI concepts to more advanced generative AI, such as ChatGPT, it's easy to feel overwhelmed.

Microsoft has made great strides at integrating AI across its entire suite of business applications. But the question remains, “How can I use AI to bring tangible benefits to my company?”

Microsoft's Role in AI: Introducing Copilot

Microsoft Copilot is an AI tool that exemplifies the practical application of AI, designed to help users boost their productivity, going beyond buzzwords to showcase how AI can speed up tasks in real-world scenarios.

The AI Summit Pre-Conference will spotlight how Copilot operates within:

  • Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations
  • Business Central
  • Sales (CRM)
  • Customer Engagement
  • Power Platform

This overview offers attendees a firsthand experience of how AI can be seamlessly integrated into their existing workflows, enhancing productivity and outcomes.

AI and Cybersecurity

Understanding AI extends beyond its application in business. The AI Summit Pre-Conference underscores the importance of AI and cybersecurity. With public and private AI models on the rise, it's crucial to comprehend the potential security risks and implications stemming from the use of AI. This aspect is particularly relevant for decision-makers who need to factor in AI's influence when evaluating their software choices.

The Present and Future of AI

As AI continues to evolve, questions arise about its current capabilities and its potential in the future. The AI Summit doesn't just stop at showcasing the present; it will also explore what's on the horizon. Attendees will gain insights into the possibilities AI holds for their businesses and industries, helping them plan effectively for the integration of AI into their strategies.

Who Should Attend?

The AI Summit caters to a diverse audience.

  • Functional professionals are those who traditionally attend Summit events. The content directly relates to them, giving practical solutions they can take home and put into practice.
