Should we really fear AI? What's really happening with Artificial Intelligence today? Why are enterprises struggling to adopt AI in meaningful ways? In this special episode of the Big Data Beard podcast, we share many previously unheard conversations with five of podcast guests about their view of AI today and find out if the fear we hear so often about AI is well founded.

Our guests for this show include:

  • Vikram Mahidar, AI Practice leader at Genpact Consulting
  • David Fearne, AI Practice leader at Arrow Electronics
  • Dr. Stephen Thomas, Director of the Masters in AI program at Queens University
  • Dan Jeavons, Director of Data Science and AI at Shell Corporation
  • Doug Merritt, CEO of Splunk
