Implementing AI in Corporate or Enterprise, Lessons learned.

Updated: Jan 23




Are you excited to get AI and Gen AI in your business, but met with hurdles and approvals at every turn? 🚫


If you are, then you are not alone. When I was tasked with getting AI and personalized streaming implemented in a large insurance company, I had a mammoth task of implementing AI for the first time, and it seemed that at every step of the way there was a new roadblock.



💡 Top 10 things I learnt - Comment if you have any others that are worth sharing!



☢ 1. There is a mental block on the word “AI”- change the word to “augmented intelligence” or “advanced analytics”.


ℹ 2. There is an overwhelming fear of personal information being used and loaded up – learn what data is actually needed for a model *hint you don’t need peoples names or contact details.


🔨 3. A Software tool is just that, a tool - Consider the long term investment and ongoing support and skills capabilities


📽 4. Getting Models in production is by far the most challenging thing - Know how to navigate tech, business, and the risk adverse


😧 5. Your delivery team is going to get despondent - Knowing what to do and how to motivate is key to operational AI.


📐 6. Project management is going to run to a clock and budget - Make sure you are involved in planning, AI is not a typical software/data project


🥧 7. AI is only one small part of the pie- Look out for changes to people, process and software.


🔏 8. Architecture, Privacy, Security and Ethics are areas not to be underestimated - Learn the technical and business process and become an expert in navigating these all of these areas very quickly.


👨‍🏫 9. Explaining how an AI model works to business is hard - Learn how to simplify it, I spent years learning how to distill it in 60 seconds.


💻 10. Monitoring and maintaining the accuracy and Return on Investment - Yes, you need to confirm if it meets the expected outcomes.
