Navigating the AI of the Storm

The world is engulfed in an artificial intelligence arms race. The winner of this race will win the world. Lets pull back to Earth, it is clear that AI skills are in demand, now enterprises have a few options. Could they hire an external partner or contractors? Yes, however many companies are thinking long-term by investing in building an internal capability. Equipped with my intuition and experiences delivering innovative AI solutions to government I was given this task in my company. I stumbled into hidden traps, pitfalls covered in the fog of the unknown and raging fires that threatened to burn the project. In this talk I will share the most valuable rules I discovered, enabling enterprises to grasp the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - artificial intelligence capability.
