Session 13-1B

Unleashing the Promise of Data & AI

← Back to Agenda

Today, many organizations are dabbling in Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, without a clear understanding of the underlying dependencies on a robust Data Architecture and Strategy.  Data and artificial intelligence initiatives are often fragmented. Their teams are often operating in different universes within the same organization, with very little collaboration taking place. This leads to lackluster results in both areas. Organizations should deliberately focus on creating an integrated Data and AI Strategy. There are many facets to such a strategy. ONE key issue that must be addressed, preferably using “Smart Data Architecture”, is data provenance, which has enormous implications for all aspects of Data and AI.
