This week we are diving into the topic of AI strategy with a new series devoted to exploring how to build an enterprise-wide AI strategy and align company efforts to optimize long-term ROI while still seeing an immediate return with leaders at top companies. To start the series, we welcome back David Carmona. David is the General Manager for Artificial Intelligence and Innovation at Microsoft. In this episode, David speaks about how Microsoft didn’t get its AI strategy quite right initially and what they learned from their approach. The critical takeaway he shares is educating leadership to bring everyone to a level of solid conceptual understanding of AI. He explains how this educational element became a crucial underpinning for how they turned things around and built a strategy that can help inform where they are going as a company.
