Read The Full Prompt

Many companies deploy machine learning or other aspects of deep learning. Amazon uses AI to anticipate when an ad has value. Google uses natural language processing to automate Translate. For this assignment, please choose a company that uses AI in a creative way to drive value creation, value capture, or innovate in its operating model.

You may focus on use of AI as a service, or you may focus on the use of AI as an enhancement of some part of a service or business. In other words, please describe how the organization deploys AI as a free-standing service around which it develops a business, or as a complement and improvement of its business process.

Describe the current challenges and opportunities the company faces in this deployment. Then assess the changes the company needs to make to address these challenges or take advantages of these opportunities. In your post, please consider any organizational changes the company needs to make to achieve its aspirations. While you should devote most of the space to value creation, please make some observations about aspects of the value capture strategy.

(Once again, to make it interesting, please stay away from big data use by the big five – Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft.)

1000 words max.
