In this episode we take a look at artificial intelligence and machine learning. Host Michael Bird, together with Craig Lodzinski, Softcat’s Chief Technologist for emerging technologies, and Matt Armstrong-Barnes, Chief Technologist for artificial intelligence at HPE, delve into the history of AI and explore its roots as well as looking at what the future holds for it. They also look at AI application in business and how it can help organisations today.

  • AI has a place in every organisation. Once you start using AI, you will always be ahead of the game as those behind you will never close the gap – AI gives you an edge.
  • AI and machine learning aren’t new developments. AI has been around since the 1940s, but we’re constantly breaking new ground – it’s a massive learning curve, but the fundamentals of AI remain the same.
  • There are a lot of frameworks that have been built to make the application of AI easier. You don’t have to start from scratch when exploring AI.
  • It’s important to understand how AI and machine learning can help you, and what you want to achieve before starting your journey with AI.
  • We are going to see the application of AI grow into the mainstream in the coming years, from healthcare to personal assistance as well as in agriculture and energy.
