Not getting the value from AI? You may not be asking enough (or the right) questions...
Using real examples from the telecoms, manufacturing, rail transport industries, we’ll take a look at what the customer initially asked us to solve. For different reasons, the initial AI challenges we were asked to solve didn’t deliver value, so we dug a bit deeper.
Asking more questions, we transformed the challenge into something that both could be solved and would add value from scenarios including fraud management, predictive maintenance and quality control.

I believe that those of us who are privileged enough to be educated, healthy, and part of powerful networks should not be doing easy things. The only way to justify our privilege is to do the hard things that society demands of us — to solve tough problems and create opportunities for others. I launched The Room to bring the most ambitious ‘doers’ together to do these hard things that will change the world. I welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community as we make history together.Fred Swaniker
