The DataView Show #3: Al Martin, IBM VP, presents “The Ladder to AI”

Watch Al Martin, Data and AI Man Extraordinaire, as he discusses how profoundly Information Architecture provides the foundation to climb the ladder to AI, and what steps are available at every stage of your company’s AI journey. Are you thinking about Hybrid-Multi-Cloud, bringing Analytics to the Data, and how to keep it all Secure? These should be key tenants of your architecture to infuse AI into your enterprise (that’s Augmented Intelligence, not necessarily “Al” Martin Intelligence!). Finally, Al will discuss how AI is not magic, but is indeed a series of concrete steps to help your citizen data scientists make better decisions.

One of the coolest things Al talked about was IBM Watson “AutoAI”. The demonstration video was awesome (see replay below).
