Fighting against AI bias
BusinessLine On Campus
March 03, 2021
In my previous columns, I described how today’s Artificial Intelligence systems use deep learning execute tasks such as image recognition, speech processing, and text analysis. Such deep learning systems make use of advanced mathematical techniques and analyse vast amounts of data to make recommendations, and are even used to automate decisions. On the other hand, as humans we have (individual and collective, and conscious and unconscious) prejudices. Our cognitive capabilities are limited, and there are constraints on how much data we can reasonably process. So, AI can be expected to make objective and unbiased decisions compared to us, right? What then is AI bias or algorithmic bias?

Diving into Deep Learning
BusinessLine On Campus
December 08, 2020
AI is certainly a hot area today, but it is by no means a new field. In fact, the term Artificial Intelligence was coined nearly 65 years ago in 1956. For nearly two decades after that, there was a wave of great hope around intelligent computers and the hard problems they’d be able to solve. But the first AI wave was followed by many years of disappointment because of the limitations of AI, and the funding for AI projects dried up. Later, a second wave of an AI boomed in the early 1980s, and again followed by an “AI winter” till the early 1990s.

How machine learning differs from traditional software
BusinessLine On Campus
November 25, 2020
In the last column, I discussed the difference between artificial intelligence and machine learning, and referred to narrow intelligence, which is a machine’s ability to perform a single task very well. Now, let’s use a more formal definition. The below definition is from Professor Tom Mitchell of Carnegie Mellon University:

A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some class of tasks T and performance measure P, if its performance at tasks in T, as measured by P, improves with experience E. Among the several definitions of machine learning, this one stands out because of its practicality for managers. Leaving aside the underlying technical details and complexity for a moment, this helps managers make sense of an AI system in terms of:

What decisions the software needs to make (T)
What data to collect (E)
How they will evaluate its results (P)

Governance and Risk Allocation in Public Private Partnerships
Strategic Management Society
December 13, 2008
In this study we examine the factors underlying the distribution of risk in multi-party projects. The context of this study is the formation and performance of public-private-partnerships (PPP) in infrastructure projects in India. PPP are becoming prominent as a means of providing infrastructure without directly impacting upon a country’s public sector’s finances, especially the Indian government’s capacity to borrow is hindered for large infrastructure projects that often run in the tune of one billion dollars or more each project. Hence, it is interesting to look at the risks involved in PPP and how they can be managed efficiently. In this paper, we examine the successful cases of risk allocation in Indian context and formulate a model of collaboration in multi-partner execution projects based on the different assumptions underlying risk allocation and risk management.

Digital Marketing Reference Models
Real Story Group
August 20, 2018
Traditional IT-oriented architectural reference models only provide a layered inventory of digital marketing systems and provide a baseline for further analysis of functional, integration, and security/privacy needs.

However, a complementary approach to digital marketing as a strategy, practice, and technology examines the efficacy and usability of marketing systems from the perspective of the customer. A customer-centric reference model can more closely tie systems analysis to business value via the pursuit of brand awareness, customer engagement, and increased sales.

This paper examines both types of reference models — enterprise-oriented as well as customer-centric — and offers advice to organizations seeking to systemically improve the effectiveness of their omni-channel marketing.

AI: What it is, isn’t, and how to succeed at it
Deloitte
January 20, 2021
AI: It's time is now, but critical issues await effective solutions
Artificial intelligence is all the rage in nearly every sector, but many people still can’t adequately define it, especially vis-à-vis its complement, machine learning. There are also concerns about algorithm bias and failure rates with AI projects. In this episode, Mike Kavis sits down with rp2ai Research founder and CEO Kash Kompella to discuss his book, “Practical Artificial Intelligence Enterprise Playbook.” The pair discuss AI—what it is, what it isn’t, bias and ethics concerns, and how to get (and keep) AI projects on track. Kash’s take is that humans need to be constantly in the loop and that governance plays a critical role in preventing both bias and AI project failure.
Being able to identify [AI] use cases, having realistic expectations...becomes very important.

Intelligent Automation with RPA
AI World
October 24, 2019
All industries face unprecedented operating challenges as they manage mounting budget constraints while trying to become more agile and increase business objectives. Unable, in many cases, to hire more employees, enterprise leaders are forced to spend dollars on contractor support or shift resources away from strategic work to handle routine, manual tasks. Robotic process automation (RPA) provides businesses the capability to operate more efficiently with reduced resources. Furthermore, RPA is moving from the back office to the front and empowering knowledge workers. Hear from thought leaders and subject matter experts who will discuss leading use cases for intelligent automation and its advantages over machine learning approaches.

Digital Marketing Reference Models

August 20, 2018
Top-performing organizations already recognize that a superior customer experience is intrinsically tied to the quality of their digital channels, and companies that sell tangible products effectively tie together in-store and digital shopping experiences. However, the quest for effectiveness in omni-channel marketing is hampered by a lack of practical frameworks to assess current states, conduct multi-stakeholder analysis, and help charter custom roadmaps for enterprise contexts.

2020 Predictions for Digital Transformation

Date : September 25, 2020

Digital Transformation: A 2020 Manifesto

A spectre is haunting Enterprises – the spectre of digital Darwinism. The imperative is categorical: digitally transform or fall by the wayside. Let’s forget the buzzwords and cut out the noise to focus on the big picture. We will realize that there is a fundamental shift underway in our expectations, preferences, attitudes, and even values at both individual and societal levels. The phenomenon is not confined to any single state or country, but all across the world…

2020 Predictions for Cloud Computing

Date : September 25, 2020

Enterprises embrace “E = MC2? as their long-term cloud strategy. Enterprise cloud strategy will involve multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud for reasons of risk mitigation, optionality, legacy application stack and avoiding vendor lock-in.

Edge AI will give rise to new cloud models. A centralized cloud is not the best design pattern for many use cases such as self-driving cars, industrial IoT, immersive experiences using AR/VR which require real-time decisions with almost zero latency. Distributed cloud models are much better suited for such applications.

Data sovereignty issues will influence global cloud infrastructure. In the economic and political realms, we are witnessing the slowdown of globalization and we can expect to see a corresponding shift to data deglobalization. More and more national governments will want data to reside within their jurisdictions and this will influence where new cloud data centers are set up and also have an impact on application architectures. This favors the deep-pocketed vendors such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft who are better placed to invest in new/local infrastructure.

Customers start paying attention to their rising cloud bills. The mainstream enterprise migration to cloud is still underway but early adopter customers are realizing that the cloud costs can add up quite quickly. On the other side of the impressive revenue growth numbers of cloud vendors are the fast-rising costs for customers! Many early adopter customers have initially focused more on the technology and less on the ongoing economics of cloud. Expect that to change in 2020 and the cloud opex will be under greater scrutiny.

Rise to prominence of TechFin experts. It takes a village to raise a child and an assemblage to optimize the cloud. While grappling with cloud security and governance, migration and microservices, enterprises have dropped the ball on cloud cost management. In 2020, companies will not only think about containers but also want to contain costs. Finance experts who understand the various cloud options and technology experts who understand the cost impact of how they build, test, deploy and maintain cloud applications will be in great demand.

This is truly an era of Cambrian explosion, one that is enabled by technology and the possibilities are only limited by our imaginations. Digital technology will transform business models, operating strategies, customer experience, and employee engagement. New technical capabilities will redefine all functions – sales, marketing, finance, HR, customer service, supply chain, manufacturing, procurement, operations, legal, risk and more. No box on the org chart will be untouched and the org chart itself will be fluid than ever before. These dynamics will play out over several years. He who would search for pearls must dive below. Across industries, incumbents struggle to adapt while disruptors struggle for profits. The truth remains that there have been very few examples of digital transformation that are both transformative and profitable. It is tempting to chase after the new shiny technology without regard to actual benefits. It is also common to feel daunted by the scale of the change required. It is nobody’s case that digital transformation is going to be easy. Transformative change is never easy. It will involve false starts, needs new mindsets and skills. You’ll have balance the short term and the long term and stay the course, even if it is challenging. In conclusion: 2020 heralds not just a new year but also a new decade. We are at the threshold of a Cambrian explosion of digital possibilities. Carpe diem! Carpe decennium!
