With current macroeconomic conditions and the prospect of recession looming, companies are tightening budgets, prioritizing projects, and reducing their teams. But what will this do to the advancements and progress companies have seen in AI over the last couple of years? With each person let go, more institutional knowledge around data and AI walk out the door with them.

Please join Rehgan Avon, CEO of AlignAI, for this TIGER Talk. She will offer thoughts on how leaders across industries can put a strategy in place to do more with less and retain the outputs of their progress in the next couple of years.
