What is a DLF event

The Digital Leadership Forum is a membership community of innovative digital leaders from leading brands including Unilever, Intel, Pfizer, Dell Technologies, BT, GSK and Baker McKenzie. Each month we host interactive knowledge-sharing sessions for our members where you can share experiences and gain fresh insights to drive your digital transformation strategies.

What happened at the event

In November 2020, members of the Digital Leadership forum met over Zoom for the fifth AI Academy session, ‘Five steps to an AI proof of concept’ in collaboration with Intel®.

Representatives from leading organisations including Unilever, AstraZeneca, Intel, Pinsent Masons, Schroders Investment Management, EDF Energy, Chaucer, Eurodiet, Highways England, LV=, Cognizant, Webeo and more joined the Digital Leadership Forum to learn an approach to success with proof of concepts for image recognition, natural language processing, and predictive maintenance.

Here are the key takeaways:

  • The scale and speed of data is arriving in an unstoppable force
  • Discover first, and invest later once the concept is proven
  • Pick your battles, don’t try and do too much
  • Data science is a team sport – give your team the tools to accelerate success
  • Don’t be aimless and stick to your message
