SAE to Host Webinar on Machine Learning and AI for Decision-Making under Uncertainty
SAE International’s SAE Media Group is offering an on-demand webcast titled “Machine Learning and AI for Decision-Making under Uncertainty,” available on its website until August 25, 2022.
As companies and organizations continue to reevaluate and adapt their decision-making processes to the ever-changing environment, one question that executives, managers, engineers, and data scientists must ask themselves has emerged: How do I allow for variability or uncertainty in my decision-making?
Moderated by Lisa Arrigo of SAE Media Group with lead speaker Gavin Jones, principal application engineer at SmartUQ, the webcast covers the importance of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) and how these powerful predictive tools can help decision-makers in these uncertain times. Specifically, SAE notes that ML and AI can be used to “efficiently enable techniques for capturing and accounting for variability and uncertainty in decisions across the product lifecycle and engineering and business processes.”
