About this Episode

“It’s not who has the most data who wins, it’s who is able to act most quickly,” said Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR.  “Its about the data agility, being able to see what the data is telling you and being able to act appropriately.”

In this episode of The New Stack Makers, TC Currie is joined by Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR a leading dataware firm.  Norris shares wisdom from a mashup of two of his recent talks: “Unlocking Artificial Intelligence (AI) Value at Scale” and "Three Problems, Three Myths, Three Realities.”

It’s not just using AI to plumb historical or accumulated data, he said, but there’s a performance aspect of how one injects performance into a business operation.  The point of operationalizing AI is being able to understand the context of what is going on at a speed that you can actually influence the event.  For customer engagement, that’s interacting with the customer on the web, or with security it’s identifying a fraudulent transaction before it is completed.
