In this presentation, Dr Patrick Thng will share how AI evolved to be where we are today and why Explainable AI (XAI)  is the next wave to watch for.  Several applications of XAI in the healthcare and financial services space will be illustrated to showcase the practical nature of this next wave of intelligence.
