Episode Summary

In this episode of The Data Standard, host Darren Kaplan talks about Micro Pivoting and AI with Sumit Gupta, VP of AI Strategy & CTO, Data & AI at IBM.

The worst place to be in the world of business and big data is to be a solution looking for a problem. However, tinkerers often have a great idea that has no market. They are forced to pivot and make sure not to pivot too many times and run out of budget.

Micro Pivoting comes as a method that allows tinkerers to only pivot your approach, which doesn’t affect your available resources. For instance, you can change the presentation part when pitching the product idea or selling the finished product to the market.

In the world of AI and ML solutions, one might not be aware of all the solution’s applications and use-cases. Maintaining this agile mindset, quickly identifying market opportunities, and how a solution can help solve real problems can be helpful.

Join Darren Kaplan and Sumit Gupta and dig right into Micro Pivoting, AI, and ML.
