An Interview With David Kenny – The Innovator news

  • — D.K.:We are at the point in AI that we were with the Internet in 1993 and mobile around 2003.
  • So I would say, view AI as something in the fabric of your company like electricity — like data flowing through your company in fundamental ways.Is it a threat or an opportunity?
  • — D.K.: The digital and mobile disruptions largely favor distribution, so most of the real value is held by a handful of companies who have consolidated distribution.
  • To take advantage of AI we really encourage companies to maintain control of their data — their intellectual property — because the value is in using it to train the AI.Don’t feed it to (an outside) platform that will serve as a distribution chokehold.
  • Companies need to establish their data and knowledge strategy first — extending their own knowledge and not just turning it over to someone else.

AI & Automation Are Key to Digital Transformations

#AI & #Automation Are Key to #Digital Transformations
#cio #cdo #postappera -

  • While nearly all IT and business decision-makers believe automation plays a critical role in ongoing digital transformation efforts, most admit that they haven’t made enough progress in this area, according to a recent survey from Infosys.

  • “This means that, in the future, an organization’s competitiveness will be measured in terms of how well its employees are able to do those tasks that automation cannot do—the tasks that involve human curiosity, creativity, and hunger to learn and grow.
  • This also means those enterprises that are highly invested in lifelong learning for their employees—to nurture all that is uniquely human in them—will be the ones that have a workforce better suited to capitalize on the future of business.”

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are essential for digital transformations, freeing up employees from mundane tasks so they can pursue creative ones.

  • In AI-first organizations, the most technical experts are not only tasked with creating breakthrough research projects or new technologies; they must also lead internal training efforts.
  • AI-first organizations are inherently agile: in the aggregate, their goal is to maximize both the number of experiments leveraging AI, as well as the speed of deployment and capacity of scaling the successful ones.

At the last Google I/O conference, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai emphasized the ongoing shift from a mobile-first to an AI-first world. What does it mean in
