Many of the tasks we perform on a daily basis are beneath our abilities, and these are the ideal targets for AI. In this episode, Ben Taylor of DataRobot joins Frederic Van Haren and Stephen Foskett to talk about AI as a creativity maximizer. Business people too often get stuck in a process rather than innovating, from office work to manufacturing to R&D, and all of these can be augmented by AI-based tools. The most successful companies have hundreds or thousands of AI initiatives across the entire business to help identify opportunities for the technology to help employees be more successful. There is an inherent push and pull between small tactical projects and big strategic ones, and we have to consider the level of effort and the impact of AI projects.
- Frederic: When will we see a full self-driving car that can drive anywhere, any time?
- Stephen: Is AI just a new aspect of data science or is it truly a unique field?
- Mike O’Malle, SVP, Seneca Global: Can you give an example where an AI algorithm went terribly wrong and gave a result that clearly wasn’t correct?
