  • AI Market/Business Due Diligence Validation Before You Buy-Build an AI Solution Recorded: Nov 15 2019 22 mins
    Thomas B. Cross
    NEWS - According to Fortune Magazine - "The survey, based on responses from nearly 2,500 executives, found that seven out of ten companies report little to no impact from their A.I. projects so far. Overall, 40% of the surveyed companies that have made “significant investments” in A.I. have yet to report any business gains."

    Critical Analysis for Buyers & Builders of AI Solutions and Technology - based on market and product research which can also be found in MindMeld - Merging Mental & Metal found in ibook https://bit.ly/2sn1NE2

    This 30-minute webinar will explore ideas on how to validate your AI Business/Product/Strategy now - in order to make AI pay for itself, provide real ROI or sell by the thousands to customers looking for solutions you a looking for.

    We recommend at a minimum the following in a market/business validation:

    - Build a long term view - figure out what you are really trying to do and also realize what AI is today will not be what it is tomorrow. From VentureBeat Summit, "AI is advancing quickly, “it’s very dynamic and changing, and the industry, and even the academics, underestimate the rate of change.”

    - Focus on compelling business issue aka delivery logistics, complex customer order process, changing customer patterns and other complex issues that you don't have an immediate solution or that your business is changing, and you want a new way to solve the problem.

    - Explore both historical to new data - neither is important alone but both working together can find weaknesses and opportunities. History is certainly any guide for the future, however, at the very least you may find existing problems that will continue to exist unless something is done about them.

    - Build for changing data analytics - more than just a better data "algorithm" model build an ever evolving data modeling process.

    - Build an AI business model - what is the goal and how does this AI system or approach fit into an immediate and long-term business model ......
  • Top 10 Critical Concepts in Crisis Management Communications - November Update Recorded: Nov 14 2019 21 mins
    Thomas B. Cross
    This monthly update focuses on responding to critical crisis communications conditions. The world by all standards is not more stable but is actually significantly more vulnerable due to sabotage, espionage, and crisis’s of all kinds. A crisis management solution is a series of online tools/apps designed to assist, guide, track and manage all corporate communications activities in a timely manner. While we would like to think there is one term to describe responses in a crisis, there is not one type of crisis nor one word to cover all situations critical to any crisis communications. Increasingly, social networks are filled with toxic nonsense, mis and disinformation, weaponized media, shamers, haters, privacy violations, fake and deep fake which you cannot predict. You cannot react to all of this, you can only direct a strategy to manage personal and company messaging. Here are the top 10 reasons for acquiring and using a crisis management team as well as tools/apps as it is "not if but only when" a crisis, disaster or terrorist attack will happen.

    Here are the Top 10 Critical Concepts presented: Communications, Context, Contact, Collaboration, Connections, Consistency, Channels, Compliance, Cynchronicity and Customers. This 30-minute webinar will review, navigate and provide actionable tools to help you manage the upcoming crisis coming to you and your business.
