Today, AI is a buzzword that everybody is talking about. Its omnipresence certainly impresses, but as is often the case, there is a lot of confusion surrounding this topic. Do business owners really know how to build and implement AI solutions? How should they go about it within the business?
Altamira is proud to introduce the first episode of our podcast series – AI Chronicles. Our three esteemed hosts are Felix Hovsepian, Ph.D., FIMA – Professor of AI at Warwick University, Jonathan Rivers – CTO of Fortune Publishing, and Varun Aggarwal – Co-Founder of Aspiring Minds.
We aim to help business leaders understand the concept of AI and separate the hype from reality. After listening to this episode, you will gain a deeper understanding of the business applications of AI and how it can assist humans rather than replace them. We will also discuss the challenges and the trials and tribulations of building machine learning-based products.
Our hosts will discuss how technological advancements impact our society, the applied use of the technology now, how it’s advanced, and really how democratic it is.
Our podcast emphasizes the importance of an appropriate understanding of the depths of AI technology, understanding all the nuances that need to be taken into account for successful implementation into business processes, and actually understanding whether your business needs this technology to be implemented.
Jonathan Rivers highlights, “AI today is literally no different from any computer program in that if you tell it what to do, it will go and execute that.“
Felix Hovsepian shares that it has become such a big buzzword and in fact, it attracts funding, and it attracts customers, and so on. And when you look under the hood, you know, a lot of companies are not using AI at all.
Our podcast will also tackle the following issues:
- The importance of educating customers and investors;
- Understanding where you will use AI technology, and what value it is going to create for customers, and explaining it to business leaders;
