Another year passes and artificial intelligence and modern analytics advance. Outside of the business world, it’s hard to miss the explosion of AI-generated art and the debates it’s sparked, thanks to OpenAI’s Dall-E 2 program. And controversy around Google LaMDA's potential sentience made of the rounds of the news.

In other words, AI is becoming more accessible and more mainstream, with 2022 being a year of AI headlines. This growth is made possible, in part, by advances in modern data platforms and improved technology to help us manage awesome amounts of data.

At NetApp, we're data management experts, and we’re excited for you to join us at NetApp INSIGHT® 2022 so we can share out perspective. ­­
