Topic 1 - Venkat, you have a very interesting background as a technologist in our industry. Give everyone a brief introduction and if you don’t mind also tell everyone a bit about being a member of the Forbes Technology Council. I believe you are our first guest from there.
Topic 2 - Today we’re going to dig back into AI as a topic. Let’s start at the start. In your current role you have been involved in technology over the years and Clari has been around for awhile. What compelled you to focus on this space?
Topic 3 - AI has suffered from a perception issue. It often is seen as unapproachable with a pretty high barrier to entry. We’ve spoken to companies in the past about specific industry or vertical applications (manufacturing for instance). Many architects and our listeners are practitioners vs. data scientists. How do we solve this problem and “bring AI to mainstream”
Topic 4 - In order for that to happen, what does our industry need? Is it SaaS based, services from public clouds, etc?
Topic 5 - Having been in field sales for years, it’s always been somewhere between complete and utter guesswork all the way to precision, rocket science level analysis. - What are your thoughts here and how can AI improve this situation?
Topic 6 - What’s next for industry? What are the use cases both today and in the future?
