Here are some of the questions that were asked: How will IBM make our lives awesome? And how is IBM getting the word out? What keeps you up at night? What do you worry about? Why should someone attend the IBM Think Conference? Do you remember your first day at IBM 45 years ago? How much did that suit cost? Besides your current job at IBM, what was a previous favorite and why? What was the favorite thing you learned or did during your IBM career? If you could do anything different over the last 40 years at IBM, what would that be? (Host Scott Hayes LOVED his answer) Do you have any career advice for IT people? (Hint: keep skills sharp and mind your attitude, and more). What is the IBM culture like, and how has it changed? Arvind, the new CEO of IBM, is your boss – have you spoken with him yet and how did it go? What is the importance of Data? Of AI?

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).

100% of our studio audience learned something! What will you learn?
