A really fun experience as attending the opening discussion in IBM Technology Forum, in W Hotel, Taipei, regarding the future enterprise AI solutions and the system requirements, August 24, invited by IBM Taiwan. It is indeed a well-organized and impressive event.
It’s a whole new and nice experience to face the key enterprise customers and IBM sales team — most of all hear their needs (and expectations) for the existing and future AI functions. The customers are really nervous on how to leverage the advanced technologies.
Along with my experiences in helping the enterprises setup their AI/DL teams, I shared my personal view on how to be the AI-savvy companies with key factors such as:
– Talents $$$$$; effective management
– Data (private)
– Strategies, products/services
– Domain experts
– Computation resources (in house, cloud-based, or hybrid)
– Standing on experts’ shoulders (open source, APIs, consultancy, etc.)
– Supports from the executives
Meanwhile, I do feel proud to promote the Watson Visual Recognition APIs with the potential enterprise customers. I am also surprised that the Morgan AI trailer project, I contributed during my sabbatical leave in IBM TJ Watson (2016-2017), had brought such advantages for the IBM sales and marketing teams.
