Solving real-life problems. This is where Ai could be the most useful. What Sodexo is doing here is adding value through the use of AI, which then adds benefit to their bottom line.

A very simplistic flowchart shows areas where you must use #AI today - because if you don't and your competitor does, then you are in trouble | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The definition of artificial intelligence is constantly evolving, and the term often gets mangled, so we are here to help.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: use this overly simplistic flowchart then look at your internal process and determine where you should use AI. Do you have someone look at products all day long to determine faulty products? If yes, use AI. Do you have people move things around a kn own environment? If yes, use AI. Because if you don't and your competitor does, then you'll be at a disadvantage...

Another great contribution by @JFGagne: A Framework + maturity model for #AI Governance that can be applied in #retail #finance to drive the #strategic planning process and govern its implementation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Modern AI can figure out patterns, classify objects, make decisions and evaluate the results. It can learn and adapt to new situations using feedback loops. It’s awesome software. You don't need to pay someone to make an analysis then pay someone to create a piece of software then pay someone to validate the outcome then realize it’s not doing  what you expected then go back and tweak the software. That whole cycle can take years in large organizations, yet a properly designed process powered by artificial intelligence can do that in a matter of days. It can recode itself, roll the changes out, and verify if it’s actually moving the needle in a direction that you want — all at an accuracy and speed beyond human ability. Quite powerful. Quite threatening.

WHY IT MATTERS: this is quite useful framework to help guide the strategic planning process and measure its progress.

Why we need High Definition maps for autonomous cars to become reality - and what @comma_Ai is doing to create an #openSource version for all to use #mapping #digitalTransformation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The future of navigation will be centralized around HD maps. While plenty of companies exist to provide this type of data, all are limited by paywalls and strict Terms-of-Service. It is time for this paradigm to change. Comma.ai is releasing US interstate HD maps from our 5,000,000+ miles of data.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: to make digital transformation a reality we required to blend the digital and the real world. In particular it is essential to have high definition maps of the real world and this paper explains why this is important, and why they have made their model opensource for everyone to see and use.

This AI Drone Can Be Controlled by Your Eyes - opens opportunities in many fields including disabilities #AI #drone #enhancedVision

This AI Drone Can Be Controlled by Your Eyes - opens opportunities in many fields including disabilities #AI #drone #enhancedVision | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Piloting a drone or an unmanned vehicle by only using your gaze sounds like a scene out of a science fiction movie, but now it’s a reality. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, and collaborators developed a deep learning system that uses NVIDIA GPUs to enable a user to control a drone by simply directing their eyes towards where they want to steer.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: being able to control devices without your hand - using eyes or voice - is still being explored. I find this a great example of merging new technologies - drone, eye gazing, AI - to expand digital transformation beyond the current scope envisioned today.

Human + Machine: reimagining work in the age of #AI #book #worthReading #summerReads

Human + Machine: reimagining work in the age of #AI #book #worthReading #summerReads | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In Human + Machine, Accenture leaders Paul R. Daugherty and H. James (Jim) Wilson show that the essence of the AI paradigm shift is the transformation of all business processes within an organization - whether related to breakthrough innovation, everyday customer service, or personal productivity habits. As humans and smart machines collaborate ever more closely, work processes become more fluid and adaptive, enabling companies to change them on the fly - or to completely reimagine them. AI is changing all the rules of how companies operate.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I recommend reading this book (not listening to audible because too many concepts/tables). It does lay out a convincing path towards autonomous AI that goes through a period of merging humans *with* AI. Worth reading and referring to during strategy sessions.

Humans+AI working together brings benefits across 5 areas in a study of 1,500 Companies #AI #BigTrends @HBR | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Companies benefit from optimizing collaboration between humans and artificial intelligence. Five principles can help them do so: Reimagine business processes; embrace experimentation/employee involvement; actively direct AI strategy; responsibly collect data; and redesign work to incorporate AI and cultivate related employee skills. A survey of 1,075 companies in 12 industries found that the more of these principles companies adopted, the better their AI initiatives performed in terms of speed, cost savings, revenues, or other operational measures.

You’re surrounded by disruption and rapid change. Maybe you’re looking for solutions. A way to seize opportunities. We all are. It’s a sprint to stay ahead of technology. Blockchain. Automation. AI.

#AI, #Automation and #BigData will create more jobs by 2030 than they will eliminate according to @McKinsey #Tech4Good | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Additional economic growth, including from business dynamism and rising productivity growth, will also continue to create jobs. Many other new occupations that we cannot currently imagine will also emerge and may account for as much as 10 percent of jobs created by 2030, if history is a guide. Moreover, technology itself has historically been a net job creator. For example, the introduction of the personal computer in the 1970s and 1980s created millions of jobs not just for semiconductor makers, but also for software and app developers of all types, customer-service representatives, and information analysts.
