Is your Data Ready for AI?

“We need more training data” is a common reframe from AI project principles. However the organization does not lack data. If anything there is too much data and machine learning and automated approaches are needed to understand and make use of enterprise data. The missing ingredient is a consistent framework and structure for information. Frequently the conventional answer is “master data”. While master data is important and critical to many processes, starting at the data level can cause the organization to miss important elements. A better place to begin is defining the concepts and things that are important to the business. Those concepts can then be designed into multiple systems and technologies.
This is a critical distinction that business leaders need to understand rather than leave to technology groups or worse, try to outsource to third party and off shore providers.

One expression of these business concepts is referred to as an “ontology” which is the master knowledge scaffolding for the enterprise. Building, applying and maintaining an ontology sounds complex but it is no more complex than other important business considerations.

Creating an ontology is an essential investment to prepare your enterprise to realize the benefits of AI and machine learning. Gone are the days when businesses should simply allow a number of small AI projects to blossom independently: for these projects to be competitive they need to draw on data from across the company, data stored in many different forms in many different systems and in different structures. An ontology defines these connections in a way that AI can take advantage of.

Business will be best positioned to build and apply practical business-focused ontologies if they 1. Identity pain points and friction in the current process 2. Define the desired future state 2. Understand what data is required to support that future state 3 Develop the organizing structures to harmonize and apply are most needed-before beginning to set the organizing principles for the ontology itself.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of:
The business value of an ontology
A non-technical explanation of how to develop an ontology
How to structure data governance
How to apply and gain efficiencies from this approach

The Journey to AI Powered Transformation: Practical Steps for Achieving Real Business Value

Digital transformation has become a broad, catch all term meaning anything from improving the customer experience to streamlining internal business processes and everything in between. Artificial Intelligence has also become a broad and ambiguous concept meaning everything from chatbots to self-driving cars. Now put those two concepts and you end up with jargon soup, wasted resources, confusion, and failed initiatives. The industry is full of hype and confusion, buzzwords and bs, unrealistic expectations and some high visibility failures.

Whenever a significant technology change comes about, it’s difficult to not get caught up in the confusion and end up on costly paths without business value due to the fear of missing the next big thing and losing out to the competition

In this session we will hear from award winning author and popular conference speaker Seth Earley who will provide practical guidelines for getting real business value from Artificial Intelligence programs and projects and discuss what needs to be in place to be successful (hint: it’s not the technology).

Attendees will leave with a buzzword free understanding of:
The necessary business decisions when considering these tools
Cultural issues and how to address them
How to approach processes to maximize business value

Knowledge Engineering – “The Last Mile” of Artificial Intelligence

Cognitive AI runs on knowledge – expertise and content structured and organized for retrieval using virtual assistants, chat bots, and conversational commerce applications. But how do organizations build this capability cost effectively and sustainably? The answer is a “knowledge factory,” an approach that solves information problems today while providing a foundation for the future methodology for analyzing business problems, breaking problems into specific information requirements, developing and structuring knowledge components, and building out models for continuous learning and knowledge curation using automated and human in the loop approaches along with process metrics to quantify business impact. Organizations that do not build these capabilities will be caught flat footed as the industry progresses and competitors build sophisticated capabilities that enable higher levels of customer service at lower costs.

Attendees leave with an understanding of:
Actionable steps to begin their journey.
How to develop a realistic achievable, roadmap based on current capability maturity
How to apply a repeatable, scalable “factory” process to conventional knowledge management problems

Knowledge Graphs, a Tool to Support Successful Digital Transformation Programs
Customer Think
July 01, 2022
Knowledge graphs are pretty hot these days. While this class of technology is getting a lot of market and vendor attention these days, it is not necessarily a new construct or approach. The core principles have been around for decades. Organizations are becoming more aware of the potential of knowledge graphs, but many digital leaders are puzzled as to how to take the next step and build business capabilities that leverage this technology.

The Coming Tsunami of Need — Knowledge Management for Artificial Intelligence
Customer Think
April 19, 2022
Knowledge management has had a bad rap. For the past few decades, it has gone through cycles of popularity after being introduced in the early 90s, and in some of those cycles, it has been significantly devalued. That is the online incarnation of KM.

Now knowledge management is experiencing something of a revival, as its value in enabling AI is being increasingly recognized.

Verizon’s Digital CX Transformation: 6 Fails (and Fixes) for One Customer
Customer Think
February 18, 2022
To begin with, even though I have updated contact information on this business account on multiple occasions, a lot of the contact information was incorrect. I was greeted by the mobile app as “Linda” — an assistant from several years back — and was repeatedly prompted to certify the device that I was doing this on, and the answers to my “secret questions” were all incorrect (though I had these tracked on a spreadsheet). I was prompted again and again to reset my password and for some reason was prompted to create a new username.

Large Scale Digital Transformations — What to Do When the CEO Says “Just Make It Work”
Customer Think
October 26, 2021
A few years back, I was attending an executive presentation of project findings and recommendations for an outdoor products manufacturing company. The project remit was defining the future state digital architecture and a high-level plan to support the organization’s transformation of the customer experience. Our engagement lead had vetted the findings and recommendations with the client’s core team. The core team was excited about the level of detail, the plan’s comprehensiveness, and the consistent architecture across multiple tools that would enable an outstanding customer experience.

10 Tips to Overcome Obstacles of AI-Enabled Digital Transformation
Customer Think
August 20, 2021
Numerous studies show that large organizations are realizing only limited success in digital transformation projects. For example, BCG and McKinsey research have put success rates in the 30% range. [1][2] The pandemic has accelerated some aspects of digital transformations, since the ability to work remotely required new tools, technology, and infrastructure. However, it is still unclear whether or not that acceleration is leading to the success of transformation efforts beyond the ability to work remotely.

ROI of Digital Transformation: Balancing Long-Term Vision and Short-term Impact
Customer Think
April 14, 2021
Nowhere is the case for metrics stronger than in digital transformations. The most sweeping and comprehensive transformations are the most effective, but the fact that they take place over years and not months means that the full effect is not felt for a long time. Yet the pressures are constant to show ROI for the investments within budget cycles. The key to maintaining support for these initiatives is to link them to improvements in process and outcomes from the very beginning. Short-term wins can then be put into the context of long-term goals, thereby sustaining momentum. Defining what those wins are and providing convincing measurements is essential in launching and maintaining digital transformations.

Digital Transformation and the Role of the Customer Data Platform (CDP)
Customer Think
February 20, 2021
Digital Transformation (DT) and Customer Data Platforms (CDPs) both entail a great deal of confusing, ambiguous and catch-all terminology that does very little to help prospective buyers make decisions. In fact, it amounts to buzzword soup. The boundaries of digital transformation are vague, and the term seems to mean something different for every company. And despite the undeniable value of having the complete view of the customer that a CDP can provide, the industry does not actually agree on what a CDP is.

What "Digital Transformation" means to your brand promise.

Data, feedback loops, and electronic body language
Digital transformation as a concept has lost a lot of its meaning and has become a catch-all for many types of information initiatives. What we need to remember is that a digital transformation is about rethinking not only the end-to-end user experience and customer journey, but the entire value chain and the fundamental reason why customers deal with your organization.

What we need to remember is that a digital transformation is about rethinking not only the end-to-end user experience and customer journey, but the entire value chain and the fundamental reason why customers deal with your organization. If customers can get products cheaper on Amazon, does that mean you are destined to go out of business? Of course not. Customer loyalty depends on much more than price alone.

The Coming Bot Craze (and What You Need to Do About It)

At the Opus Research (@opusresearch (link is external)) Intelligent Virtual Assistant Conference in San Francisco this week, I heard from vendors, analysts, gurus, and customers about how the world will be transformed by artificial intelligence, agents, machine learning, intelligent virtual assistants – collectively known as “the Bots.” One of the more entertaining sessions consisted of a panel of venture capitalists, including former Evernote CEO Phil Libin (@plibin (link is external)), Joshua Kauffman, of Wisdom (@joshuakauffman (link is external)), and Sarah Guo of Greylock Partners (@saranormous (link is external)). One of Phil’s comments related to how people think AI will kill humans. He said that is a logical assumption because the AI will be really smart and humans are #$$holes.

How Companies Are Benefiting from “Lite” Artificial Intelligence
Harvard Business Review
July 19, 2016
Artificial intelligence is hot, but also daunting. The latest advances — known variously as cognitive computing, machine learning, and deep learning — sound complicated and expensive. And they are, despite the enormous potential they bring to the marketplace. For many companies, the price tag and the commitment of resources are too high a hurdle. And for other reasons, even a giant like Apple is facing challenges.

Although AI is receiving a lot of visibility, the fact that these technologies all require some element of knowledge engineering, information architecture, and high-quality data sources is not well known...

Information Architecture: The Engine that Drives Retail
LinkedIn
September 26, 2014
Under pressure from pure play e-Tailers such as Amazon and eBay, brick and mortar retailers are scrambling to defend their businesses. To stay competitive, most have now added an e-Commerce channel. The challenge for many legacy retailers is that e-Commerce has involved a long learning curve and now mobile and web channels have become part of core functionality rather than a cutting edge addition to the brand. Add to this that many traditional retailers still lack a core competency in the technical nuances necessary to compete effectively with the Amazons and eBays.

The AI Powered Enterprise
Lifetree Media
April 28, 2020
The AI-Powered Enterprise examines two fundamental questions: First, how will the future be different as a result of artificial intelligence? And second, what must companies do to stake their claim on that future?

When the Web came along in the mid-90s, it transformed the behavior of customers and remade whole industries. Now, as part of its promise to bring revolutionary change in untold ways to human activity, artificial intelligence—AI—is about to create another complete transformation in how companies create and deliver value to customers. But despite the billions spent so far on bots and other tools, AI continues to stumble. Why can't it magically use all the data organizations generate to make them run faster and better? Because something is missing.

AI works only when it understands the soul of the business. An ontology is a holistic digital model of every piece of information that matters to the business, from processes to products to people, and it's what makes the difference between the promise of AI and delivering on that promise.

Business leaders who want to catch the AI wave—rather than be crushed by it—need to read The AI-Powered Enterprise. The book is the first to combine a sophisticated explanation of how AI works with a practical approach to applying AI to the problems of business, from customer experience to business operations to product development.

Using the Customer Journey to Optimize the Marketing Technology Stack
Henry Stewart Publications
March 01, 2021
This paper discusses how to evaluate marketing technology (martech) software
in the context of the customer journey. It describes the technologies that are used to
engage the customer at each stage of the customer journey, beginning with search engine
optimization to enable the inbound engagement that brings customers to a website
and informs them about the available products or services. The paper describes the
different characteristics of the customer journey, such as the fact that it traverses multiple
departments and requires support from many organizational processes and structures.
The paper concludes that in order to develop an appropriate martech software stack,
it is essential to take a holistic view of the customer journey and the technologies used
to support it. This paper provides a detailed analysis of an engagement strategy that
spans the entire customer journey and identifies the technologies that are used for each
stage, from search to purchase, order fulfilment, use of the product, and support. As
implementing a full complement of solutions is not always possible, this paper provides
guidance on how to prioritize the selection of enabling software, to guide the investment
strategy by identifying those technologies that offer the greatest value to the organization.

How to delight customers & increase revenue with product recommendations
Earley Information Science
December 08, 2021
Today your ecommerce customers expect to be shown recommendations as they browse your product catalog. But, “most popular” is a filter that isn’t going to cut it anymore. There are many better approaches now for providing recommendations - from "others also bought" to context driven recommendations. Some involve more human intervention while others are algorithm driven. Depending on where you are in your ecommerce journey one or the other may be more suited to your site.

In this webinar we discuss:

**What is a recommendation engine
**5 techniques for providing recommendations
**What data, technology, and skills do you need in place for each approach
**What you need to do to move to the next level

Here’s the secret that your competitors aren’t revealing. They ARE INVESTING in the foundational information architecture that every digital transformation depends on. From high performing ecommerce sites to AI powered customer service bots, they are all made or broken by the quality of the data that drives them. There is no way to skimp on this and achieve superior results. In fact, the need is greater than ever for taxonomy and IA as companies look to semantic search, AI powered chatbots, optimization of the customer journey, the ecommerce and personalization, data analytics and more for a competitive edge.

In this webinar Seth Earley, Founder & CEO of Earley Information Science welcomes Rebecca O'Brien with Global Industrial, David Bonk with 3M, and Giovanni Piazza with Takeda Pharmaceuticals to the panel to share their unique insights related to building the information foundation for digital experiences.
