The AI Tightrope - The Why ... The What ... and How to be a part of it, Paul Zikopoulos

Paul Zikopoulos, VP of Big Data Cognitive Systems, IBM: Magic is glass slippers that turn you into a princess or a kissed frog that becomes a prince; AI is not magic. It's a discipline that's based on data; and just like a gym membership that's left sitting, if you don't use your data acumen, you won't get anywhere in terms of results. AI has become a LIFT, SHIFT, RIFT, or CLIFF moment for individuals and companies ... and while the term AI is a bit too 'buzzy' right now ... it's here to stay and it will completely change organizations and employee expectations forever.
