Exploring Data, Digital and Artificial Intelligence through a Holistic Lens
In the latest episode of ‘The Data Strategy Show’, host Samir Sharma engages Prithvijit(Jit) Roy and Pritam K Paul, Co-Founders of BRIDGEi2i, in a riveting discussion. The leaders discuss data and digital transformation opportunities arising despite the global pandemic and enterprise challenges towards AI adoption. They discuss the benefits of design thinking; how business partners brainstorming together improves decision-making and creates a holistic strategy. BRIDGEi2i leaders explain why AI is an enabler to digital transformation. Currently, many organizations have heightened expectations with AI, but these companies need to understand that AI implementation is a journey where solutions get more effective over time. It’s also crucial for enterprises to plan for contingencies and take preventive measures to ensure biases do not creep into datasets after implementing algorithms into pilots. In addition, the leaders touch upon how it’s imperative to set the right expectations from AI so that more and more pilot projects get translated into POCs.
