Service questions

Here are some of the most common general questions to help you further.

“Our company is new to AI, can you help?”
Yes, certainly, whatever part of your AI journey, I will be happy to help. With a solid strategy, skills and guidance you have a better chance of success. I can help with all or parts of the process.

“Why do I need you when I can talk directly to AI developers”
You can and should talk to everyone including myself. My aim is to assist you in getting the best value for money in your AI, data, cloud projects.  I see myself as a partner, rather than a consultant as I want you and your project, to be a huge success for the long term. I spend many thousands hours monitoring the latest technology and business ideas from the best developers in the world. My aim is to pass on the latest vendor and and technology advice to all my clients. I am 100% results driven and my aim is to exceed expectations.

“I am confused by AI and not sure what I want?”
Don’t worry, this is quite common as there are so many options. I am here to cut through the noise and focus on your objectives. AI is so exciting, with so many possibilities and opportunities whatever level of your business. I can help assist you in your journey.

“Should we develop AI in-house or outsource?”
This really depends on your business and its size, background and future plans. I can help look at the best options for you now and the future.

“How long does an AI project take?”
This depends on what is needed. I tend to work fast and thoroughly. Please contact me and I can give you a more detailed estimate when I know the parameters of your project.

“Should we develop new ML or use something off-the-shelf?”
This really depends on many factors, like complexity, resources, speed and future development. I can work with you to find the right solution.

“How do you normally work?”
I am extremely flexible. I can work on either a per project basis or rolling contract. Please contact me to discuss further.

“What is your pricing?”
Every project is different requiring different amounts of work. In the discovery phase of the project I will outline my pricing. Saying this, I pride myself on giving value for money. It is my intention to exceed any investment and become a long term partner of yours for many years.

Here are some of the most common AI finder, strategy and advice questions to help you further.

AI finder questions

“What is the AI finder service and how can it help my business?”
The AI finder service is where I find the best experts for your AI project. Firstly, I analyse your AI and business requirements and match this with the contacts. This is a complex calculation to ensure you get the best selection. Sometimes, by discussing your requirements I find many new options and opportunities.

“We are keen to outsource our development, but hopefully want to bring this in-house. Is this possible?
Don’t worry, this is a common and prudent plan. It is far easier to start with developer that have experience in a particular domain. This allows you to get up and running quickly. As you find your feet you can then develop your in-house team for the longer term. Many companies are happy to work with you in different ways.

“I need a specific ML/AI expert for a specific aspect, can you help?”
Certainly, I will work hard to understand your requirements and find you the best contacts for your project.

AI strategy questions

“Why do I need an AI strategy when I have already a strategy for my business?”
I would always advise on having a separate AI strategy that aligns with your overall business strategy as it allows you to focus on the answering the core needs of using AI. The process of developing an AI strategy is integral to the success of the project. Projects without an AI strategy can often to lose focus and become ineffective. Having a solid strategy, helps focus on objectives within the overall business framework. The upsides are more than the downsides.

“How long will a strategy take to create?”
This dependent on what you are trying to achieve and if you have the resources in place. Often when working through a data strategy, new opportunities appear that can transform your business.

Advice

“As well as AI, can you advise on data engineering and what platform and infrastructure to use?”
Central to any successful AI implementation is the infrastructure. I can advise on this as well as suggest experts to help you throughout this process.

“We have a legacy servers, are you able to advise on how we implement AI?”
Yes, I can fully understand your requirements and find the best solution for you.

“It is critical that we are making the right business decisions with our AI, what background do you have in this area?”
For over 30 years I have setup and run several successful businesses and very passionate about entrepreneurship. I understand all aspects of business, the needs and the importance of good business decisions.

“We use an analytics platform and not sure if I need AI?”
Please contact me and I can look to see what you are using. I am the first to suggest the best technology for your objectives rather than just choosing AI first.

Hope this helps. If there are any questions that were not covered, please feel free to contact me.
