"Artificial Intelligence in Procurement"

This talk will start with an exploration of whether there is the possibility of artificially intelligent life in Procurement...examining the characteristics of AI and Procurement and looking for potential matches. Once we have answered the question, we will discuss areas of AI that have reached a certain level of maturity, and the difference between Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Automation. We will conclude the discussion with real-world use cases that are being pursued in the domain of Procurement.
