Executive Summary

Last week, the Coresight Research team attended the first-ever US-China AI Tech Summit, which was held in Silicon Valley. Our first report on the conference covered the day’s morning sessions, including a fireside chat with Apple Cofounder Steve Wozniak. The second half of the event focused on applications of artificial intelligence (AI) across industries. Experts from the fintech, legal, enterprise and nonprofit realms discussed the challenges ahead and the greatest opportunities for AI integration.
