Ntoh Etta, CEO of Horizon Global Partners, and I chat about AI in the enterprise, getting past buzz words, harnessing AI, and who is winning the AI arms race.

PODCAST HIGHLIGHTS:

Ntoh Etta, CEO of horizon global partners, is in the chair this week. I've wanted to sit down and record a podcast with Ntoh for a long time now... Every now and then he says something that sounds profound, ... it makes me listen more intently.

Ntoh is at the forefront of the AI and machine learning groundswell, helping enterprises harness those advancements and apply it against use cases. But I realized I didn't know very much about Ntoh's history, how he arrived at horizon global... he's got an interesting story. 

Horizon Global partners is all about accelerating growth, I ask him what that means, and is there a methodology to growth acceleration, and I ask him how market fit plays into that. 

 

Ntoh spends a lot of time shepherding larger enterprises through their efforts to become AI driven. He talk here about what that truly means, and separating the hyperbole of buzz words from actual ROI.

When it comes to kicking off AI initiatives, what typically needs to happen first? Do you hire a bunch of data scientists or applied AI engineers, take them off other projects?

I always have to ask my favorite question about how close we are to the AI-induced robot apocalypse, which Ntoh answers in a very learned way, but I also as him his perspective on the great AI race happening now between the US and China.

Everyone Should Be Able to Create Smart Data.

You can do amazing things with data now. This is where everyone involved in bringing NNCompass to life talks about how your business can start using things like machine learning to create "Smart Data".

If any of this sound familiar to you, you're in the right spot...

  • I really want to take advantage of things like machine learning, and see what it can do for my business, but I don’t know where to start

  • I have a data problem. Too much, too different, coming in too quickly. I don’t have 4M USD to hire teams of people to overcome my data problems.

  • I wish I could ingest and get a handle on all of my data, not just beautifully structured CSV and XLS files, but all my emails, MS Word docs, Adobe PDFs.

  • I don’t have the resources or time to first hire data engineers, then data scientists just so I can start using machine learning algorithms to answer some of my most difficult business problem sets.
