A podcast about cloud, technology and the people using it

Episode 88: Data is the new oil!

In this episode we’re once again joined by Philip Miller to continue our AI discussion, and this time we also invited Todd Wright from Progress to discuss data and the importance of data accessibility and connectivity within AI. Generic large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT are fun and all, but being able to leverage your own organizational data in a secure way to train models is where the real magic happens. AI is a long term program and not just a short term ‘one and done’ project. We discuss some practical guidance on how to make the most of your data and why data quality and governance are so important.
