TCF2021 Keynote Event

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Artificial Intelligence

Jerry Foster,
CTO & Co-Founder, Plex Systems

There is much talk these days about machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), and for good reason.  AI is the enabler that drives exponential value from all other technologies; for any process that generates data, it is no longer optional, but a requirement.  This keynote provides an overview of Artificial Intelligence, from its humble beginnings to disruptive force, with an eye towards the significant positive impact on our world.

Jerry Foster is the CTO and one of the founders of Plex Systems, which today helps more than 600 manufacturers worldwide run their businesses. Jerry earned his degree in computer science at Liberty University, and used his education first as a programmer at a Michigan metal former, where he built a custom innovative ERP system, before taking that solution to other businesses, eventually building a SaaS manufacturing company that today employs more than 500 employees globally. Jerry continues to set the pace of the innovation in the cloud, leading the company’s technology strategy and research initiatives that drive the industry forward.
