Gaining insights with machine learning - KMW Webcasts KMWorld Live

Every industry is finding value in machine learning projects. At the same time, most projects are still in their early phases.

KMWorld recently held a webinar featuring David Seuss, CEO, Northern Light; Mark Hinkle, head of sales, Diligent Governance Intel; and Michelle Lam, sales engineer manager, Alation, who discussed how organizations can utilize machine learning to gain insights into industry trends and companies.

AI has revolutionized the way companies stay informed, Hinkle said. By using Diligent Governance Intel solutions, companies can easily benchmark and contrast the organization against competitors or overall industry, get data-driven health scores and metrics, gain AI-focused news and events, and can quickly focus on specific parts of the organization that are excelling or are at risk.

Data is hard to find, understand, and trust, Lam said, noting that a recent Vantage Partners survey identified the perils companies are facing. The survey found that 72% have yet to forge a data culture, 69% have not created a data-driven organization, and 52% are not competing on data and analytics. The answer is to create a data catalog, she explained. Human curation can provide context and understanding and be combined with machine learning that provides scale and documentation.

At Northern Light, Seuss has laid out a guide for successful cognitive computing. This includes picking a problem that is central to an important business process, one that cannot be solved any other way, and coordinating all the domains and disciplines required, along with the non-machine learning components.
