This week we are diving into the topic of AI strategy with a new series devoted to exploring how to build an enterprise-wide AI strategy and align company efforts to optimize long-term ROI while still seeing an immediate return with leaders at top companies. To start the series, we welcome back David Carmona. David is the General Manager for Artificial Intelligence and Innovation at Microsoft.
