Data governance can take on a range of forms and it continues to be a pain point as so few people want to take ownership of data. What does a strong bottom up approach look like? How do you reassess how to sell your program internally as new changes, including regulatory requirements arise? Find out how to:
· Determine the appropriate size and scope of a data governance program for your organization
· Re-evaluate data governance to suit the needs of evolving technology like machine learning and AI- given data governance’s ability to be efficient in processing the data that goes into creating machine learning algorithms
· Advance and mature data governance when different domains are at different levels of maturity

Ayush Parashar, Co-founder and VP Engineering, Unifi Software
Artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the way that business users across an enterprise interact with data and gain business insights. AI will shift the balance of power from a few highly skilled and highly paid workers to the masses. Anyone with access to big data will be able to quickly comprehend what has happened with their business and predict their business outcomes, then visualize or consume that insight on a wide and growing range of devices and display types. In this brief introduction to AI applied to Big Data analytics, Ayush will describes some of the trends and what to expect from AI in 2018 and beyond
