Machine Learning (ML) & AI for the Enterprise

01:30 PM2023-11-082023-11-08

Wednesday, November 8: 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Located in Russell/Hart/Cannon, Meeting Room Level

Evolution tends to reduce the energy cost of decision making, so is there a danger that growing use of machine learning (ML) will make us lazy? ML is only as good as its training datasets, so will growing use of ML increase the prejudices of the past at the expense of new ways of thinking? Diversity issues are already arising with ML in large companies. It enforces rather than disrupts existing ways of thinking, which is something we may need to do to deal with our uncertain and changing future. Will we end up meeting ML halfway? It will appear more intelligent than us because we have allowed our intelligence to be reduced by using it. Remember, our sense of smell is far worse than that of our immediate ancestors: If you don’t use something, it atrophies! What type of protocols do we need to put into place to ensure that the above-mentioned dangers do not come into play? How do we use ML to augment human intelligence and decision making rather than talking about replacing it? Our creative thinker and popular KMWorld speaker shares his insights and challenges our future with ML strategies and possibilities.

Generative AI, Context, & Knowledge Models

02:30 PM2023-11-082023-11-08

Wednesday, November 8: 2:30 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Located in Russell/Hart/Cannon, Meeting Room Level

When search technologies moved from the web to the enterprise, the incorporation of knowledge models (taxonomies and ontologies) provided more accurate and complete search results. Now that we are looking to bring LLMs (large language models such as ChatGPT) and generative AI from the public web to inside the enterprise, there is again a role for knowledge models to provide better results. The subject domain and context can also make a difference. The advantages of combining a taxonomy/ontology with generative AI and limiting it to a subject domain is explained and demonstrated using real-world applications.

Keynote: Data in the Age of AI

08:30 AM2023-11-092023-11-09

Thursday, November 9: 8:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
Located in Grand Ballroom, Salon 2/3

AI and the internet are transforming our understanding of how the future happens, enabling us to acknowledge the chaotic unknowability of our everyday world. Back when we humans were the only ones writing programs, data looked like the oil fueling those programs. But now that machines are programming themselves, data looks more like the engine than its fuel. This is changing how we think about the world from which data arises, and that data is now shaping as never before. We’ve accepted that the intelligence of machine intelligence resides in its data, not just its algorithms—particularly in the countless, complex, contingent, and multidimensional interrelationships of data. But where does the intelligence of data come from? It comes from the world that the data reflects. That's why machine learning models can be so complex, we can't always understand them. The world is the ultimate black box. Weinberger looks at the implications of this for people who work with data, those who share knowledge and insights inside and outside the enterprise, and those looking for ways AI can assist their organizations in future success.

ChatGPT, Siri, Alexa, and Cortana are not knowledge managers or subject matter experts. Yet we use them regularly to quickly find answers—and often with little concern for the validity of the answer or its sources. In the explosive expansion of the data universe where fast and frictionless access to the right information makes the difference between success and failure, AI technology is being employed—sometimes unknowingly but increasingly as a desperate attempt—to help people do their work more efficiently. But often it results in havoc, confusion, and distraction: While the AI may be reaching wide and working fast, it is also indiscriminately creating questionable outcomes from the vast expanses of low-quality or outdated data. Enter the Guardians of True Knowledge: protectors of data, content, and information quality—using their skills and tools to expand the relevant “known knowns” across the content services realms. They have learned that to tame the AI, they must feed it with the right information—yielding extraordinary outcomes for the organizations they serve. Focused on achieving high knowledge productivity outcomes, this talk explores the inevitable adoption of AI in the way we produce outcomes and homes in on the tools, platforms, and strategies for the enterprise of the future to tame both the data and the AI to deliver the right outcomes. Hear about the risks of shadow-AI and of AIs producing useless/risky outcomes because the AI has access to too much data of little value.
