    When I grow up, I want to be a sense maker

    Ask a five-year-old what they want to be when they grow up. Chances are: ‘machine learning specialist’ will not rise to the top of the list. For decades, our show and tells have been catwalks for classic capitalism, where mini pilots and policemen strut their oversized uniforms for kindergarten audiences. We’re very comfortable with our kids wanting a career as a doctor or a lawyer when they grow up; we may even entertain the idea of builder or architect for some years. But, at the end of the day, when varsity fees are all paid up, we’re still pulling our old-school paradigms, like a hood, over our eyes and expecting our kids to have the same jobs that we’ve had.

    More efficiency in service excellence thanks to AI

    Although the AI development is still in its infancy, it’s clear by now that customer satisfaction can be achieved faster than ever with its help. However, like with any new technology, the typical principles apply: First, AI remained a marginal phenomenon and only experts dealt with it, but after it got some media attention it became the talk of the town.
