“The most obvious way is through more and more automation of jobs, smaller tasks that require key entry will be automated and at an unprecedented scale,” Pelz-Sharpe said.
The economics of the situation will curb demand for new emerging-technology projects and stall existing work in the short term, but it will also drive up the demand for remote-working technologies, automation and disaster recovery, said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of U.S.-based tech consultancy Deep Analysis.
“The Clearview controversy falls into the abyss that many criminal justice issues fall into-only those who do bad things should worry about it, why should ordinary people worry about it?” He said, “Of course, the problem here is much broader because This technology affects everyone and anyone can use it for any purpose. “
Pelz-Sharpe said he thinks such platforms will be used to “target, identify and discriminate.” Activists have expressed the same concerns over the last few years: that authoritarian governments could use facial recognition to target government protestors, for example. But, “no doubt those using the technology will somehow attempt to justify their actions if challenged,” he said.
Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of Deep Analysis, confirms that there are lots of definitions of “enterprise,” many of which conflict with one another. Based on his expertise, he loosely defines an enterprise as a “for-profit company with huge revenue.” He says enterprises are neither medium-sized businesses nor small businesses, but rather very large ones.
The Middle East is better positioned for digital transformation than many other regions because it is not over-encumbered with complex legacy IT systems that have been heavily customised over time, according to Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of research and analysis consultancy Deep Analysis and author of bestseller “Practical Artificial Intelligence – An Enterprise Playbook.”
According to analyst Alan Pelz-Sharpe, some technology providers are using this educational gap to sell their products or show their skills in a better light. Other vendors offer free, if sometimes rudimentary, training to help them understand AI better while explaining the basics of AI while at the same time selling their products.
In this interview Alan Pelz-Sharpe shares lessons learned from existing information management projects using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
“That is quite different in the sense that people are building their own products and platforms with AWS,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “I’m not saying you can easily swap out, but you can move your storage from Amazon to [Microsoft] Azure, to Rackspace, to Google. You’re not terribly locked in. It’s a monthly subscription.”
“AI is offered in some legal discovery software systems, and over time all these specialized vendors will leverage AI and machine learning,” said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst at Deep Analysis. He added that the AI-powered feature of Alfresco Governance Services is one of the first such offerings from a more general information management vendor. “It is positioned to augment the specialized vendors’ work, essentially curating and capturing relevant bodies of information for deeper analysis.”
