Artificial Intelligence in Industry with Daniel Faggella

Erin Knealy is the portfolio manager of the cybersecurity division of the Us Department of Homeland Security. She is the interface between the US government and the startup and tech ecosystems. We speak with her about transferable lessons from the AI use-cases in the public sector into the private sector. How does an existing organization pick the right first AI project? How should look through a lens of opportunity when it comes to AI? In this episode, we discuss how these lessons learned in the public sector can apply to the private sector.

It's curious to see how much more there is of sensor tech and internet of things than there was 18 months ago. This week, we speak with Cormac Driver, PhD and Head of Product Engineering at Temboo, an IoT vendor.

We talk about how to spot AI and IoT opportunity where sensors and equipment in the physical world can actually deliver ROI and drive value for an enterprise. In addition, Cormac discusses how to get the most out of an IoT project and what's involved in terms of data and infrastructure. Finally, I ask Cormac in what sector IoT will become ubiquitous first.

There's an entire artificial intelligence ecosystem for enterprise search. Most of this is in a purely digital world. Most vendors help with a layer of AI-enabled search that understands terms or phrases and is able to return the results or answers to questions that someone types in. But the problem is compounded when it comes to searching the physical world.

That is the topic of this week's episode of AI in Industry. Our guest is Anke Conzelmann, Director of Product Management at Iron Mountain. Iron Mountain is a four-billion-dollar physical and digital storage company based in the Boston area. They handle the records of some of the largest financial, health care, and retail brands around the world. IConzelmann speaks with us about the future potential of artificial intelligence for search within an enterprise, not just of digital files, but across formats.

The AI in Industry podcast is all about transferrable lessons. Today we speak with Andrew Byrnes, an investment director at Comet Labs in San Francisco about the competitive edge with AI. What does it look like when companies adopt AI in a way that gives them a competitive advantage? Byrnes breaks down the idea into two categories: automation and augmentation.

We did a lot of focus on healthcare for the World Bank, and we presented a lot of that research in South Africa. When I was there, I interviewed DataProft cofounder Frans Cronje about the intersection of AI and manufacturing.

We talk about what's possible with AI in manufacturing today and just how instrumented and challenging it is to add a layer of AI insight into a manufacturing environment. This is much harder than a lot of other domains where data is maybe more accessible, and in some cases it's also higher risk.
