FutureCIO Forum: Data & AI Innovation Exchange

Discussions around Artificial Intelligence, whether in the board room or in working group meetings often mask the fundamental requirement of AI – that of good data. Mainak Mazumdar, Chief Research Officer at Nielsen, says any effort to harness the power of AI is fundamentally tied to the quality of the data. He goes on to predict that innovation will be driven by better data that can activate the full potential of AI.

Data has become the challenge for organizations looking leading to what some experts call the 1% problem – despite almost 90% of surveyed organizations making significant investments in AI, only 1% of companies are succeeding with AI. The reason? About 96% cite data as the obstacle when moving AI to production.

Welcome to Data and AI Innovation Exchange – the first of its kind forum organized by FutureCIO in partnership with IBM. At this forum, we will tackle real data scenarios blocking organizations from harnessing the promised potential of AI.
