Critical thinking and insights – For leaders, managers

Every AI should be focused on giving value and return on investment. The report states that companies can generate over $460 billion in incremental profit if they: Improve data practices, AI trust and integrate AI with their business operations. Many AI projects still need to catch up in data verification, data practices and data strategies. When all of these areas are addressed, it can help unlock the potential of AI.

Fundamentally, each project should focus on the business objectives. Every aspect should be aligned to point towards this.

Critical thinking and insights – For AI developers and engineers

The level of confidence in AI is very buoyant. However, focusing on getting business results is critical to short and long-term effectiveness. Every aspect of the AI journey – data capture, data management, model production, testing and deployment, should measure business value. Most AI developed still depend on a high percentage of human input. Focusing on higher AI capability with lower human input increase return and lower costs in the long term.

Trust and sharing data are also critical to success. The key is unlocking potential with confidence in the infrastructure.
