How to Apply and Optimize Your Algorithm When You're Ready to Run With AI

Posted by Sourav Dey on Mar 29, 2019 5:50:00 AM

Amazon’s recently launched SageMaker artificial intelligenceservice is an exciting new development, but the program doesn’t do it all. There’s a distinct gap between innovative AI technology that exists and AI solutions that will help drive business results in your specific case. Using products such as SageMaker is like having a brand-new Tesla Model S: It’s an awesome car, but it’s a giant electric paperweight if you don’t know how to drive.

We discussed "walking" with AI in a prior Entrepreneur article; now it’s time to hit the ground running.

Most are struggling to fulfill fundamental needs, such as reliable data flow and storage. The truth is that data literacy is lacking at most companies hoping to reap the rewards of AI.

Posted by Sourav Dey on Mar 27, 2019 5:42:46 AM

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard the buzz around artificial intelligence. So it might surprise you to learn that, according to a 2017 survey published by McKinsey Global Institute, out of 3,000 AI-aware executives, only one in five are using any AI-related technology in core areas of their businesses.

Why aren't entrepreneurs and executives jumping on what they know to be a market-changing technology? In a word, uncertainty. With AI still young, leaders aren't sure where to apply it, how to ensure a return on their investment or, most of all, how to implement it.
