Key AI take away: Understand what problem your AI is trying to solve, plan for scale and bake security in at the start. Document and understand what you have built. Really: Buy a tool to do this if you can. The do it all again...The ID the next problem. Repeat @delltechforum
paul calleja
Key take way is that AI use cases are every ware, helping science and technology in ways we could not think possible just a few years ago.
paul calleja
The only barrier is making the technology accessible to non IT domain experts. Dell is helping in a significant way to make the technology affordable and more importantly easier to use
Paul Brook
Yes: Talk to people, Dell people, colleagues, business partner. Collaboration is so key great point @jamonascone

We would like to thank our hosts and participants for a lively and insightful discussion today! Please do check in later, as we will keep this chat open for 48 hours and you can still share your #AI stories or ask the #DellTech team any questions. https://www.crowdchat.net/s/261ek

@jamonascone and booking a Virtual Executive Briefing for strategic conversations with our leaders and experts
Paul Brook
All: Must say @paulcalleja2 is spot on - your imagination is the only real limit.
Paul Brook
So many folks feed back how great these Virtual Exec briefings are @vGazza
Brian Farrell
for non-domain experts - it is possible to work with very familiar interfaces and remove (outsource) the complexity beneath. @DellTechForum

At Dell we have our own journey, and yet still get inspired by some of our start up and early adopter customer. I like this from aerofarms https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB7tEZbz6zM

thus we have a strong focus on producing AI services that are easy to consume with entry level training
Dell Technologies Forum
Do these projects have to start at the C-level? We can assume that often AI projects require a cultural change in the organisation, too?
Maurizio Davini
We are starting the journey even if new tools are helping our users a lot
paul calleja
also we have some highly experienced users with huge problem sizes to solve, and here we need to focus on large scale systems and very fast storage since AI can have really high demands on I/O
Paul Brook
My favorite is always if you do not know what your business problem is - then AI is not going to solve your business problem....
Maurizio Davini
Virtualization flexibility is one of this tools
Janet Morss

Ivan Renesto
@paulcalleja2, is this then what drove you to develop the Data Accelerator? Can you please, tell us something more about it?
Christopher Huggins
@paulcalleja2 many of our partners & customers find the AI journey begins with the consolidation of data for analytics. Do you agree and if so how are you approaching this?
Paul Brook
....to the point made by @paulcalleja2 experienced users who have a grip of the problem still need the tackle the problem. The first part is knowing the problem you wish to solve.
paul calleja
We are a consortium of users that want us to stores the whole internet archive so they can run AI analysis over the whole combined history of the web

Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@chris_d_huggins I observed this journey in the enterprise space too: #Analytics leading to #AI as more use cases are added
Sébastien Verger
some still think technology first rather than asses the needs and get a right project approach. @DellTech consulting and services can help finding the way
Janet Morss
@PaulBrookatData Good to have a keen view of the goal as you know AI can't solve everything . . . yet (lol)
Dell Technologies Forum
How can new technology support you on the #AI journey? We talked about this a little before, but what would you advise your peers here. What "tool kit" should they assemble?
Paul Brook
@jamonascone You know I just covered this discussion with a customer this very morning, we chatted about tings from craft musical instruments to craft brewing, it is amazing when you workshop something actually how much AI could benefit so many areas.
Janet Morss

Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@SVemc agreed 100%. The right approach to the right #AI use cases to produce quick wins that turn the project into a program.
Janet Morss
Also good to take a hard look at the data. Do I have the right data? Is it normalized for use?
Paul Brook
Sebastian Yes: The right project to start and then so often the wall that is hit is how to scale. Scale creates it's own issues don't you think @svemc
Ivan Renesto
Traditional centralized HPC file systems can create I/O bottlenecks and produce unresponsive systems, significantly impacting return on investment in HPC solutions.
I really like what you did, @paulcalleja2 https://www.dellemc.com/resources/en-us/asset/whit...

Paul Brook
and absolutely Yes @jamonascone at scale the data changes so many things.
paul calleja
Yes this is exactly why we co-designed with Dell and Intel the Data Accelerator, an NVMe solid state storage solution to totally remove I/O bottlenecks

Whether you are sampling data with Dell workstations, proving out your AI concepts with bare-metal #PowerEdge servers, or taking these to production at full scale through virtualization, the #DellTech portfolio makes AI real for customers every step of the way. #GetWorkloadAgile

@paulcalleja2 scale is important especially when you wnat/need to start small. this is why the vHPC and vGPU solutions are real good news @vmware

we will be working on this with Intel this year with Optane Persistent DC memory and DAOS, and we expect to greatly improve performance again

The video games and brain scan. I saw a wearable aimed at helping rehabilitation from brain, spine etc injuries. All AI based. Amazing research and amazing use of games to review how the brain works
