Future-Proofing Your Business with Thoughtful AI

By Sydney Radclyffe for Box News

In terms of developing tech and shifting industry strategies for remaining relevant in the economy of the future, Artificial Intelligence is the shiny new toy that everyone wants to try out. As often as the exciting potential of AI is discussed, so too has confusion taken root in many companies and organisations without concrete knowledge of the technology and what it represents. People know that AI is important and of-the-moment but aren’t always sure how to incorporate it into business, leading to inefficient or risky applications of the still-obscure technology. The best way to develop and implement AI systems going forwards must be led by well-rounded understanding, not only of machine learning, but of its potential human impact. 

As a veteran of AI development, lifelong mathematician and habitual wearer of many hats, Milena Marinova, Senior VP of AI Products & Solutions at Pearson, is well poised to cut through the confusion. She spoke with Alasdair Munn of Box Media about her solution-driven approach and the vital need for collaboration as new technologies continue to develop. To paraphrase Milena, if we start with purpose and objectives, AI can be a key part of wider collaborative efforts to solve both small-scale and universal issues.
