The AI in Industry Podcast

It’s easy to find skepticism or hype when it comes to artificial intelligence, but it’s hard to get real facts and trends that matter for business leaders. That’s exactly what we do each week on the “AI in Industry” podcast.

Each week, TechEmergence founder Dan Faggella interviews top AI and machine learning executives, investors and researchers from companies like Facebook, eBay, Google DeepMind and more – with one single focus: Gaining insight on the applications and implications of AI in industry.

  • How AI is being used in business today
  • Which AI applications are driving real business value, and which are still experimental
  • Strategic AI considerations for business planning
  • Likely AI trends and disruptions, and what top executives are doing to take advantage of them
