Today’s guest is Dorothy Li, Chief Technology Officer of Convoy, a logistics and software company based in Seattle that has raised nearly a billion dollars in funding. Dorothy spent over a decade at Amazon, where she served as vice president of user experience, then of BI and analytic services at AWS. Together with Emerj Head of Research, Daniel Faggella, Dorothy explores a logistics use case for AI capabilities in predictive inventory and the impact it is having on manufacturing writ large. Still, there are many challenges, among them that truckers and freight carriers don’t have the equipment (mobile apps, GPS) that other last mile and delivery workers have. Later, they examine where AI can be applied to help schedule deliveries to avoid unplanned downtime. To access Emerj’s frameworks for AI readiness, ROI and strategy, visit Emerj Plus: emerj.com/p1.
