Speech Topics

Embrace Artificial Intelligence with a common sense approach and a human touch

Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real, This acronym is perfect when I hear 'AI is going to replace me'. In 1870, agricultural workers comprised half of all workers in the US; in 1900, about one-third of all workers; and in 1950, less than a fifth of all workers. Between that period the GDP of US increased by 5 times (3k/person to 15k/person).

This session is filled with simple statistics as above which will plant a thought on the audience's mind that embracing AI instead of debunking it will help humanity in near and long term. The best technologies are those that fit in so seamlessly that you don't even notice it and attendees of this talk will learn how AI can benefit them and in turn be an evangelist of artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence - Implications for Business Strategy

Consider a working environment. It could be your current organization, an organization where you have previously worked, or a fictional organization. Think about the role of technology in the organization and how it assists managers and other employees with efficiency and productivity.

Now, think about the strategies the organization is currently pursuing. Does the organization rely on cost leadership, differentiation, or focus? How might AI technologies contribute to (or be inconsistent with) these strategies?

Which strategy would you choose to emphasize in your chosen organization? How could AI potentially fit in with the strategy you have chosen? Are you able to use any of these three strategies to innovate in ways that may bring new value to the organization? Using the questions above to guide the session, this talk piques the audiences' interest in adopting an enterprise approach to AI in various aspects of your business.
