making artificial intelligence actionable: A compass for leaders
WHY THIS GUIDE
Artificial Intelligence has rapidly evolved in the last few years, offering businesses a myriad of opportunities to improve day-to-day operations, increase ROI, and reduce cost. Yet the world of AI is vast so it is challenging for leaders to determine the best ways to harness the power of AI.
Much of the AI literature that exist today is designed for the technical expert. Few resources are designed for executives and most lack the ability to bridge the gap between technical theory and concrete action. So Making Artificial Intelligence Actionable: A Compass for Leaders addresses this gap.
Whether a company is further along in its AI journey or still in its nascent beginnings, there is a very real need to help decision makers make AI actionable and scalable. Companies struggle to build teams, design pilots, and then scale, resulting in a gap between ambition and action. To add to the confusion, with every company claiming to offer AI, how does one pick a solution that corresponds to an actual business need?
