Digital Leadership Training Series:
The Power Duo of AI & Big Data

WHAT IS THE POWER DUO OF AI & BIG DATA?  

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is only possible with big data, because we need a tremendous amount of data to “teach” or “train” AI systems. As its name suggests, AI has a form of intelligence of its own. It figures out which rules to follow based on the data that we feed them.

An AI application doesn’t just do what it’s been programmed to do. AI can go further than that. It responds to changing information and makes adjustment based on what it learns as it goes along. AI differs from supercomputers and other systems with powerful computing capabilities in one important way. AI systems are capable of not just computing, but actual learning — machine learning. The more data you give these machine learning networks and the more computational capability you give them, the better the result becomes because the results of previous machine-learning exercises can be fed back into the algorithms.

Most of us have been using and engaging with these companies like Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Tencent, and Ctrip. What do they have in common? They are not only the world’s highest valuated businesses but also the world’s most influential platforms. The next generation of Fortune500 companies in the decade of 2020 will be mostly platform-based businesses such as Airbnb, Grab, Robinhood, Spotify, and more.

What is platform? More importantly, what kind of magic do they have to make them so powerful? Platforms, a near-monopolistic business model, are quietly taking over the global economy. These platforms make much of their money not by what they sell but by facilitating the interactions or transactions of others. Traditional product, manufacturers,  brands, and intermediaries (or “the middleman”) incumbents in all major industries are being seriously disrupted by these platforms.

I am going to explore why every one of the businesses has to have the right platform strategy in order to able to compete and even survive in the DigitalEconomy, and how we can formulate a suitable and feasible platform strategy for our businesses even we are a product company now. Stay tuned on April 29.

5 passionate and innovative teams from our CUHK Convoy MiniMBA programme have presented their “NextBigThing” projects today. The winning team not only won a marvellous award but also their project will have good potential to be a real project.
It was the most important part of the whole programme as each team has to capitalize what they learnt from the 10 modules of the programme & innovate like a startup. Rather than just training, it cultivates the intrapreneurship & innovation mindset & capabilities for the participants. It becomes a DNA of the staff & the company for sustainable competitiveness in the ever-changing DigitalEconomy.  
The programme include EmergingTechnology, DesignThinking, High Performance Leadership, CorporateGovernance, Strategy Investment Decisions, and more. I’m so grateful to have a chance to contribute, design, teach & coach the participants.  Look at how they summarized what they learnt on the white boards – impressive. Witnessing their changes & improvement is amazing. It has been 2 cohorts already & the 3rd cohort is on now. Keep it going, teams. You are all our champions.
