Artificial Intelligence in Industry with Daniel Faggella

This is our final episode in our series on advancing your career in the era of AI this month. We had more Linkedin messages on this theme than any we've done before, and it got me excited to think about what we could do with this kind of series in the future.

In this episode, we distill the insights from this month's series with insights from our broad catalog of interviews with AI-minded executives throughout the many years doing this podcast.

We also cover three AI-related career roles that do not involve coding.

 

 

 


We continue our theme on advancing your career in the era of AI. This week, we speak with another AI lead from a gigantic IT services firm: Cognizant. Bret Greenstein is Head of AI at Cognizant, and he talks about what folks who think about AI in terms of strategic direction, project management, etc., have in common.

Brett also discusses how non-technical folks can think about AI in order to take on leadership roles in AI projects, including having a firm understanding of what is possible with AI in their industry.

If you're listening to this podcast, you at least have an interest in leveraging AI in the enterprise. But how do you take that interest and use it to move up in your company and advance your career?

In this week's episode, we speak with Muriël Serrurier Schepper, who worked with AI at Rabobank and Shell managing advanced analytics projects. She now has her own AI consulting firm.

Muriël speaks with us about her experience using her prior skillset to enter the world of AI, take the reigns of exciting AI projects, and open up more career opportunities for herself.

In October, we're focusing on how non-technical employees can still gain an edge in the era of AI even if they've never learned any code. I can't think of a better guest off the bat than our quest this week: Wijay Wijayakumaran, Chief Architect of Machine Learning and AI at IBM Australia.

Wijay emphasizes how much stock he places in the critical importance of subject-matter experts and business leaders with domain knowledge. He also runs through possible career opportunities that non-technical employees can look for in the era of AI and questions they can ask to get more involved with AI projects at their organization.
