Artificial Intelligence in Industry with Daniel Faggella

It's the final week of our month-long series on planning your corporate AI strategy. This week we speak with Shane Zabel, Head of AI at Raytheon. Shane talks to us about the phases of building an AI strategy. What are the steps? He discusses the importance of finding an AI pioneer at a company who can build some initial ideas of what AI use-cases could be viable at the company.

If you're in the process of analyzing AI use-cases for your company or clients, we created a guide for this exact topic. Learn more about it at emerj.com/t3.

This week, we speak with Scott Nowson, AI Lead at PWC Middle East, about the critical capabilities nontechnical business people need to understand to be able to advance their career and apply AI in their industry even if their company hasn't started with AI yet.

Scott has an uncanny ability to convey business lessons on AI, and he's one of the few people who got our full Getting Started with AI report before today's formal launch.

The report is finally open, and in it, listeners can find the must-know knowledge that will allow you to take your AI interest and turn it into real career opportunity without learning any code. Listeners can learn more about it at emerj.com/a1

In this episode, we speak with Adam Bonnifield, VP of AI at Airbus, one of the youngest executives at the firm. He talks about how to think about starting a corporate AI strategy, which for him entails beginning with the data assets.

Adam thinks through how to take account of those assets and what kinds of people need to be part of the conversation to unlock the most fruitful AI applications in an established company.

If you don't want to learn to code but still make yourself tremendously valuable in the era of AI, this episode is for you.

This week, we speak with Carlos Escapa, Global AI and ML Practice Leader for Amazon Web Services. Carlos speaks with us this week about starting an AI strategy with a more practical approach. Instead of thinking about how to radically reshape a key part of your business with AI or use AI for AI's sake, Carlos talks about instead thinking about where AI fits in with what your business is already doing.

He provides some thought experiments to run through for thinking through this and how to get started with AI.

Last month, we focused on advancing your career in the age of AI, and this month we have a new theme: building your corporate AI strategy. At Emerj, much of our work in the public and private sector is in building an AI strategy and giving organizations data on where the ROI is in the AI world.

This week, we speak with Ian Wilson, former Head of AI at HSBC and a research advisor for our banking work. He has rare experience applying AI strategically at one of the largest banks in the world, and I think he is just the person to start off this month's theme. Ian talks about beginning to plan your AI strategy.
