#057 Putting the intelligence back in AI — Daniel Hulme

What do we really mean when we call things artificially intelligent? Is AI significant progress or a significant threat? And when does SkyNet some online?

My guest is Daniel Hulme. Daniel was a guest lecturer on my Master's program back in 2019 and by some distance, the most impactful certainly for me. The reason is that he covered in his talk the very foggy topic of artificial intelligence, and specifically how it's understood and approached by business.

I firmly believe that one of the things going really wrong in digital transformation is a lack of consistent unified definitions for all of the trends and technologies that drive disruptive change. So much money, time and effort have been spent on these things that everyone at the boardroom table seems to have a different definition for.

Daniel is the CEO of a business called Satalia, which focuses on developing workable AI solutions for businesses around the world. It was also incidentally recently acquired by WPP, which is the same network that bought my agency.
