Enterprisers Project: 8 habits of successful AI teams

The Enterprisers Project published "Artificial Intelligence (AI): 8 habits of successful teams" on June 25, 2020 quoting Seth Earley:

Being successful with AI programs requires that organizations create working teams with representation from multiple disciplines, says Seth Earley, CEO of Earley Information Science and author of The AI-Powered Enterprise.

Vodafone, for example, tried to build their AI capability by looking for “cognitive engineers.” “The problem is that cognitive engineer is a new job role and there were none on the market,” says Earley. “Instead, they built their own by assembling a team consisting of data scientists and programmers (obviously), but also linguists, information architects, user experience experts, and subject matter experts from the business.”

The particular mix of skills required will vary based on the flavor of AI. “Predictive analytics would not likely require a linguist, for example,” Earley notes.
