2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Panasonic, a global enterprise that’s undergoing a major transformation to provider of living, mobility, and energy solutions. As part of this strategy, Panasonic acquired Arimo to help drive and accelerate the adoption of AI across its product and technology portfolio. The company has spent the past two years working with a range of business units to apply AI to enhance or create new service offerings to customers. Internally, it is also participating in building the Panasonic Digital Platform, a horizontal technology infrastructure with built-in machine intelligence capabilities.

Christopher Nguyen shares lessons learned implementing multiple commercial AI projects at Panasonic. Along the way, Christopher discusses a number of use cases at various stages of implementation maturity, from PoC through commercialization, and explains what AI really means today in enterprise products, where the key opportunities are, their impact, and key success factors in the adoption of AI across the enterprise.
