Adam West - Head of Marketing - Satalia 

Adam is Head of Marketing at Satalia, one of Europe's fastest growing AI companies that combine machine learning and optimisation to solve efficiency problems for some of the world's best-known companies. Adam has recently keynoted for Google, GSK, Pearson, Orange, the House of Commons, CineEurope and ImpactAI - and recently won 'best speaker' when presenting his published paper on the impact of AI on branding in New York.

Adam’s talk will explore the future of AI and its ability, once harnessed, to make creative decisions. Using real-life examples and relatable anecdotes, Adam will first demystify the hype, and align audiences on what AI is, what it is not, and what impact it will have in on individuals, organisations, and society. It will also consider innovation in the context of AI, and questions whether typical organisational structures and process are setup to attract, retain and empower AI talent. Adam will also touch on AI applications both externally and within organisations, including how it's being used creatively, to decentralise decision making, and even set salaries.

Brent Palmer - Design Lead - Carwow

Brent is Design Lead at carwow, where he manages the car buying experience teams. He previously held similar roles at Zendesk, PayPal, TrendKite and Spredfast. Before a long career in technology, he spent 10 years in advertising (don't hold that against him). He is active in the design community and speaks at meet-ups and design conferences. 

If collecting data is easier than ever and design tools are at their zenith, why is it so difficult to make smart product decisions? If big data is here to stay, where does regular research fit? Brent will explore how data teams and designers collaborate at carwow to unlock the best solutions. He'll also walk through how, when paired together, qualitative and quantitative insights can get everyone interested in user feedback.
