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.
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.
