CREATING THE FUTURE WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI): PROOF OF CONCEPT AI USE-CASES

Are you part of shaping the AI disruption or are you outpaced by it? Let us co-create AI proof of concepts and business intelligent systems architectures in the main industrial areas: health, finance, transport and energy.

How will AI impact financial, health and energy transactions and knowledge-intensive business services and how should it be regulated? How will consultancy, insurance, and legal services be traded and how should the new business models be organised? What about the associated data and ethics?

There is a lot to explore, and use cases from industry are crucial for developing an understanding of the new ‘normal’ in business, as well as for regulation and policy to build an AI friendly economy.

Learnings from specific use cases (or examples) include gaining an understanding of the complexity and challenges of the AI opportunities in its entirety. They address how particular visionary opportunities from AI can be realised, what they are, and what is needed for building the business capabilities, such as:

  • Finding the scientific and technical solutions and combinations

  • Skills and data analytics

  • Reaching an optimum transaction costs efficiency

 

  • Selecting partners and doing open innovation

  • Finding the new business model

  • Organising work in new structures

  • Understanding the ethical and legal issues

 

For building national capacities via policy, regulation and the budget, the use cases should also address:

 

  • Effect on business performance or productivity

  • Effect on society as a whole, including citizens

  • News or innovative use of data

  • Time to market

 

 

Provocations on visionary use cases or examples addressing opportunities from AI:

  • Michael Harte, Group Innovation Head at Barclays

  • David Ferguson, Head of Digital Innovation at EDF Energy

  • Tony Waller, Partner, Head of Technology, Corporate Partner, Olswang

  • Roberto Desimone, Senior Manager, Strategic Innovation (Disruptive Technologies) at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

 

Discussion

How will AI transform your products or services? What expert knowledge do you have? And what capabilities do you need?

How can Big Innovation Centre help?

  • To find your partner? – Would an AI LANDSCAPE TOOL of expert companies and individuals with IA capabilities, and who can support you, be useful?

  • To project manage your use cases? - Bring us your use case, and we build and project manage it!

To consult on the ethical and regulatory dimension of your use case?
