Designing AI Programs: Organizational Readiness

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

AI has been getting its fair share of inflated and unrealistic expectations due to a lack of broad understanding of this wide-ranging space by software vendors and customers.  Software tools can be extremely powerful, however the services, infrastructure, data quality, architecture, talent and methodologies to fully deploy in the enterprise are frequently lacking.  This four-part series by Earley Information Science and Pandata will explore a number of issues that continue to plague AI projects and reduce the likelihood of success.  The sessions will provide actionable steps using proven processes to improve AI program outcomes. 

In part 2 we discuss - What needs to be in place?  Who needs to be on the team? 

AI projects (or at least the successful ones) require that certain supporting data and processes. Those capabilities are necessary to provide inputs for the system and apply the outputs to solve problems.  Many organizations are “getting ahead of their skis” by not clearly identifying or fully understanding the dependencies.  This session will review ways of identifying who needs to be on the bus and factors that influence how well an AI pilot can be operationalized and scaled.  Building the right team is as important as selecting problems to address, software packages and platforms.  However, AI talent is in high demand and costly.  Where does it make sense to outsource and when is it not a good idea to do so?

  • Why you can’t outsource everything
  • The underlying processes needed to support an AI initiatives
  • Focusing on the foundation (processes, metrics, outcomes)
  • Finding baselines and measuring impact
