Understanding the path from planning to implementation for AI

When it comes to AI, there’s a big disconnect between what’s being promised and what’s being implemented; while AI’s capabilities are expanding rapidly, we’re not seeing much actual execution. As I outlined in a recent article I wrote for the Forbes Technology Council, we’re still fighting fundamental data issues that are keeping companies from building the solid foundation they need to implement AI. Addressing data quality, timeliness, and harmony, along with data security and storage, are absolutely essential to achieving success with this technology.

However, there’s currently a shortage of qualified, educated people in data science, who are critical to ensuring the success of Al once that foundation has been built. At same time, we’ll need to see an influx of qualified people to oversee data quality and data operations, especially considering the massive volume of data that AI requires.

In response, we’re seeing a tremendous increase in data science programs at leading universities. These students will soon infiltrate the workforce and become a critical function of every company. All of this is part of the ongoing trend of moving to digital decision-making processes and making AI implementation a reality.

I am excited to see where this path takes us. AI and machine learning will surely revolutionize how companies do business. While today some companies struggle with processes that are still slow, digitization and AI will solve this problem. Data will no longer come from manual input or scanning but from the actual files themselves—increasing the speed and accuracy of operations, providing insight into company processes, and helping to identify areas for improvement. But first, companies will need to invest time and resources into building the proper foundation—including data quality, timeliness, harmony, security, and storage—to ensure AI’s success.
