Director of Artificial Intelligence
Philippe Sawaya is the Director of Artificial Intelligence at ADT Commercial. Philippe leads the development and deployment of analytics solutions to optimize internal operations, deliver analytics-driven value to customers, and augment the capabilities of ADT Commercial’s autonomous drone and robotics programs.
Philippe joined ADT Commercial when the organization acquired Percepta, an AI company that he founded with the mission to develop ethical computer vision analytics by utilizing anonymized data—addressing the issue of inherent biases prevalent in many of today’s analytics.
Philippe holds a B.S.E degree in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania and a deferred M.S.E in Robotics from the University of Pennsylvania’s General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) laboratory.
In this discussion that brings industry leaders together with practitioner perspectives, we address the question: How do you monetize and productize artificial intelligence? And we ask: What is the value that CSOs need from AI to solve challenges of identifying hidden threats and risks? From video to facial recognition to interrogating data lakes for hidden meaning, our panel will explore what’s real and what’s still a dream for tomorrow.
