Atlanta Applied Artificial Intelligence is a group of C-level converts to AI. They knew how hard it was to think about their enterprise in an AI mindset. All the hype around AI doesn't help, so they formed an exclusive meetup for Fortune 500 execs to talk understand the opportunities and constraints of AI for their businesses.
Vikram and I had a lively talk about how to apply AI from a business perspective and a product perspective. Here's one topic we dove into:
Where should AI live? In business or IT?
Business is trained to think in bets and scale. By contrast, IT does not like to take risks. On the surface, it would seem that AI should belong in Business and I don't disagree. But UX changes the game somewhat. Not only can UX think in terms of risk and scale, their focus on the gestalt end result gives them a different sort of insight. But that talk is for a later time.
