Chamber Connects: From Optimisation to Transformation - Impact of Artificial Intelligence on our lives in the future

Description: The Speaker for this Chamber Connects event will demonstrate how determination to achieve personal and professional goals can be life changing and change lives.

4Sight envisioned a 4th Industrial Revolution, and its CEO, Professor Antonie Van Rensburg, lives that vision - inspiring companies to transform into Industry 4.0 entities and take advantage of the digital economy and disruptive technology to create new products or services, change markets, or increase productivity.   4Sight's sectors focus is broad: Telecommunications, Media, Property, Mining, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Retail, Utilities - a spread across the South African economy - although its clients have global portfolios. Its optimisation model is based on connectivity - using technology to build solutions for efficient and responsible business models, using the internet, data analytics, machine learning and AI. It is all the more amazing, given that 4Sight works to enable its eligible clients to achieve returns on their investments within less than six months and within acceptable risk levels. The secret?  Creating the organisation's digital twin, making sure the business case, solution design and financing models support practical implementation for the company. 4Sight reaches 64 million end customers daily with 31 million daily transactions across 25 countries.
