Launching a new product or service (or entering a new market with the existing portfolio) isn't obvious. How can you ensure that you'll reach the right KPIs and achieve your business goals? For that very reason, to improve their odds, businesses leverage a plan known as a GTM strategy (go-to-market strategy).
Although the three terminologies are typically used interchangeably, they no longer pretty refer to similar things. Let's look into the three buckets of computer science and compare artificial intelligence vs. machine learning with a little deep learning grasp.
Consumer beliefs and behaviors are changing fast. To keep up with—and perhaps even influence—those changes, companies must leverage deep consumer insights. These are internal changes, but they are external ones. COVID19 is one of the most influential forces, which demanded many companies to revisit their go-to-market strategy.
New product development (NPD) is designing and launching products to answer a market opportunity. AI for new product development has applications across various business sectors. How does AI help to bring products faster to the market with more accurate results?
AI can fail you, and in a big way: by delivering results, which nobody cares about, or providing results only if you invest millions, which might not guarantee final success. Measuring the ROI of the Artificial Intelligence project will put you on the right track.
The hype around artificial intelligence (AI) has led to lots of jargon making the technology difficult to understand in product development. I have asked myself? What are the elements which product development should cover in the process of building great AI-powered products? I will answer the question by exploring the elements of the AI technology development process.
Lemonade is a next-generation AI company offering home insurance products. It is a pioneer in the InsurTech ocean. Its adoption of machine learning (ML) goes beyond customer experience and driving efficiencies to underwrite risks and manage claims. Considering Lemonade as a disruptor to the insurance industry, top-notch investors like SoftBank, Google Ventures, and Allianz financed the company with a $480 million funding. The investors' trust was strengthened as the startup managed to attract more than 14,000 subscribers in eight months only. It is is not the end of the fantastic story. Having reached $1m ARR in Q2 2017, Lemonade's ARR reached $10m ten months later and jumped from $1m to $100m in 2.5 years.

You might think that AI requires a lot of people, funding, and complicated infrastructure.  GoPro examples prove you can start small, with one person, ready to go software, and a lot of experimentation.     In this video, I explain how GoPro began, as I think their approach is very inspirational.  They started small and experimented with solving real customers' pain points.     If you want to learn about Artificial Intelligence from home, please visit my website for more resources:     Arek Skuza

The systems we require for sustaining our lives rely upon algorithms to run. Entertainment, food distribution, healthcare, fuel, global banking, sport and wellness, and much else are becoming highly automated. AI development needs reliable moral guidance if we are to avoid some of the more catastrophic scenarios envisioned by AI critics. I am excited to conduct a conversation with Reid Blackman Ph.D., about Artificial Intelligence and ethics. Reid works with senior leaders to develop and deploy strategies that identify and solve for ethical red flags. He is a Senior Advisor to Ernst & Young and is a Founding Member of EY's AI Advisory Board. After hours, he is a father of two and, when they let him, he enjoys rock climbing.. In this LIVE conversation, we will cover: 📌 What has been discovered by researching ethics in Artificial Intelligence? Where are we now with this subject? 📌 What about the machines' responsibility? Will the robot be ever responsible for any damage? 📌 Chips under the skins, wires in our skulls, cars rushing while the driver is sleeping - any chance to make that ethical?

To succeed, product managers must demonstrate a specific set of core competencies — no matter where they work. But, the role of the product manager is particularly hard to define. They operate with a wide range of responsibilities and huge pressure to deliver results, often without reporting authority.  The future of a product is never predictable. As it meanders — discovering, fine-tuning, and pivoting — product managers shape the way forward, far more so than in a larger organization which have steady-state goals and plenty of minds to guide the way. With never enough resources and always discovering unclear paths, product managers are flying the plane while building it. This brings out either the best or the worst in a person, but the opportunity to drive impact is tremendous. From strategy and positioning to pricing and customer retention, they are challenged to do more with less.
Trends capture provides a 360 perspective of the external circumstances that affect product launch and go-to market startegy. While defining future objectives for a product or service, trend capture is used as a basis on which future go to market strategy assumptions are designed. Market trend capture involves getting four puzzles together: Puzzle 1: Understand trends in consumer needs (value propositions shift and expectations) Puzzle 2: Shifts in Consumer Perception of Value are dynamic, and it necessary to track the real-time Puzzle 3: Capture the cost drivers which trends are providing Puzzle 4: Grasp and track change and evolution of the niche Curious what trends capture presentation/visualization looks like?
