Edgar Perez Speaking Topics

The Human Element in ChatGPT

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence language model designed to understand natural language and respond to user queries, providing human-like conversation in text form. ChatGPT can be used to automate customer service, answer frequently asked questions, and gain insights from customer interactions; it can also be used to analyze large amounts of data and generate reports. While ChatGPT is a machine, it was created by humans, and it has important implications for the relationship between humans and machines. Mr. Perez will explore the ways in which ChatGPT blurs the line between human and machine, and what that means for the future of work and our relationship with technology.

Generative AI and the Future of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way since its inception in the mid-20th century. One of the most exciting and promising developments is Generative AI, a rapidly evolving field that focuses on teaching computers to create original content such as music, images, text, video, or protein structures. Unlike traditional AI, where the focus is on classification, prediction, and optimization, Generative AI aims to enable machines to learn from patterns in data and then use that knowledge to create something entirely new. The applications of Generative AI are vast and far-reaching, and its potential to revolutionize industries such as life sciences, fashion, design, healthcare, journalism, and music is significant. Mr. Perez will inspire your team as he explores a future that we can experience today.

Is Web3 the Beginning of a New Internet or a Stroke of Marketing Genius?

Web3 promises a better internet built on the blockchain, the distributed ledger systems that form the basis of cryptocurrencies. Backers promise it will cut out traditional middlemen, letting users transact directly and have a greater stake in the applications they use. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, for example, make their money through advertising; yet, they share zero of it. Users are supposed to be happy with likes! If the sirens’ songs are to be believed, Web3 will bring more power into the hands of end users. Some people have different views though. Is Web3 just really a land grab underway by already powerful people? Is it a dystopian vision of a pay-to-play internet? Is Web3 ultimately a mere rebranding of crypto with the aim of convincing people that blockchains are the natural next phase of computing? Mr. Perez will inspire you as he cuts to the Web3 chase.

Achieving Digital Impact with “State-of-the-art” Deep Learning

Deep learning has enabled many practical applications of artificial intelligence in today’s digital organizations. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, more effective medical diagnoses, AI-generated art, even better language models, are all here today. Mr. Edgar Perez will identify what organizations need to do today to embrace the future, starting with the basics: empowering their employees and turbocharging the organization’s digital transformation strategy. Organizations then can then launch pilots for the most promising opportunities, leveraging “state of the art” cases from today’s global innovators such as Google, Facebook, Apple and Tesla. Mr. Perez will show organizations how to kick start their digital impact transformation.

Welcome to the Metaverse: The Next Evolution of the Internet

The Metaverse is where our digital and physical lives will converge. It will include a virtual world interoperating with the physical world where we live, and generate a robust economy that spans entertainment, commerce, education and work, while transforming long-standing industries such as finance, retail, healthcare fitness, and more. Today, every major company is staking a claim on the Metaverse, from social media giants Meta (formerly Facebook) and Snap to gaming powerhouses Tencent, Microsoft and Epic Games, to hardware providers Nvidia and TSMC. Embrace the possibilities the Metaverse will bring to your organization during this fascinating session with Mr. Edgar Perez.

  • We were much honored to host you at our annual conference held at our Washington DC headquarters. The Market Abuse Unit investigates large-scale market abuses and complex manipulation schemes by institutional traders, market professionals and others. As such, we were focused on the discussion of these topics in your book The Speed Traders, copies of which we purchased for each of our unit supervisors. We really appreciated your first-hand impressions of the current trading world as well as your thoughts on how trading practices will evolve in the future.
    Chief, Market Abuse Unit, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (United States) - Oct 06 2022

  • Edgar’ speech gave us a lot of inspiration. We can see how young entrepreneurs have big dreams. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and ByteDance’s Zhang Yiming really displayed long-term thinking, and now they are the biggest competitors in the world. I enjoyed his speech a lot!
