Demystifying AI — Everything You Need to Know for Successful Deployment


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the spotlight in Data Sciences and Operations Research. As AI investment grows and becomes integrated into our financial systems, machinery, retail operations, supply chain and health, safety, security, environment (HSSE) systems, the complexity and risk increases. Terms like software factory, AI factory, data warehouses, and agile practices fill the literature to accelerate adoption of the complex efforts and risks of AI.

That said, a large percentage of AI deployments fail. This occurs from either moving too fast, too slow, or simply not moving forward at all. Many AI technologies are being deployed with uncertainty and no governing method or minimum standard guidelines needed to ensure success. Institutions and individuals are reacting to the allure of AI technology without creating a robust method of governance where the gap between business goals and technological innovation converge. A key to deployment discussions, often overlooked, is how to make sense of the enormous amount of unstructured data in image, video, audio, and text that has the highest value.

Session Outline:
This presentation explores:
- Why AI?
- Best practices from process to unstructured data
