HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a provider of AI-powered solutions that optimize selling in the digital economy, today announced its global premier sponsorship and significant presence at the Professional Pricing Society (PPS) 29th Annual Fall Pricing Workshops & Conference and 14th Annual European & Global Pricing Workshops & Conference, including a keynote presentation by PROS Chief AI Strategist, Michael Wu, Ph.D. The events are scheduled for Oct. 23-26 at Dallas’ Renaissance Addison Hotel and Nov. 28-30 at Amsterdam’s Movenpick Hotel, respectively.
“Artificial intelligence (AI) is proving its power to radically transform industries and disciplines, and pricing is no exception,” said Dr. Wu. “In order for the pricing industry to fully leverage the potential of AI, pricing professionals must understand it in a practical way, and help their organizations make changes to accommodate its disruptive force. My colleagues and I look forward to talking to, learning from and connecting with other PPS members to discuss the exciting shifts on the horizon.”
