Even as AI technologies move into common use, many enterprise decision makers remain baffled about what the different technologies actually do and how they can be integrated into their businesses. On the plus side, the technologies we thought were decades away seem to be showing up at our doorstep with increasing frequency. However, little effort has been made to clearly explain their value and genuine business utility.
Kristian Hammond provides a practical framework for understanding your role in problem solving and decision making, focusing on how these technologies can be used, the requirements for doing so, and the expectations for their effectiveness. Rather than focusing on the technologies alone, this framework ensures that as you build, evaluate, and compare different systems, you’ll understand and be able to articulate how they work and the resulting impact.
Kristian Hammond is a chief scientist at Narrative and a professor of computer science and journalism at Northwestern University. His research has been primarily focused on artificial intelligence, machine-generated content, and context-driven information systems. He sits on a United Nations policy committee run by the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR). Kris was also named 2014 innovator of the year by the Best in Biz Awards.

Hi excellent presentation – thank you! Would it be possible to get a copy of the slides? Thanks so much.
Recognizing that AI is math + data would you describe the role of business process and workflow management as an integrated capability necessary for achieving ROI?
This sounds like a great framework for getting buy-in from top-level management. Looking forward to it!
