Scaling AI for Business to Accelerate Innovation and Productivity

About this event

Thailand’s national AI strategy and action plan aims to have in place an effective ecosystem for developing and applying AI to promote economic growth, increase the country’s competitiveness and improve the quality of life for its citizens by 2027.
As the government moves to develop a social, ethical and legal framework for AI to guide the other objectives, industry leaders both in public and private, must work together to build a sustainable AI infrastructure, invest in education, and develop core AI technologies to increase its use and innovation.

An IBM Institute for Business Value revealed that 75% of CEOs believe competitive advantage will depend on who has the most advanced generative AI. Sawat Asdaron, managing director of IBM Thailand and managing partner for IBM Consulting, cautions that more than 60% are still not developing a consistent, enterprise-wide approach to generative AI, which is an essential step in a responsible, trustworthy AI system.

Among anticipated benefits that AI promise including enhancing efficiency through automation and using data analysis for informed decisions and creating new products and services.
However, to achieve these benefits, organisations must overcome challenges that scaling AI presents. These include the need for large amounts of data, the complexity of developing and training AI models, and the potential for bias and ethical concerns.

He adds that beyond people and skills, cybersecurity and data conversations, is the necessity to have a flexible operating model. Specific to Thailand, Sawat reveals is the importance of a business ecosystem strategy. “Allowing open innovation, such as cross collaboration between different industries, can lead to joint ventures between banks and telecom operators who can provide consulting and deployment.” He concluded.

This 9 May 2024, CXOCIETY, in partnership with IBM, will hold AI for Business Executive Summit where we deep dive into the latest transformation technology using practical use cases that deliver real-world results.
