“In our world of data information management, we often see a rush to use emerging technology as ‘the savior’ and while it can absolutely transform an organziation, the value of emerging technology — like AI or RPA — is that they’re only effective if the data you are using is good.” – Veeral Majmudar
“Organizations typically struggle to understand their unstructured data like videos, texts, e-mails, images and documents…AI and NLP are the keys to unlocking unstructured data, what I commonly refer to as data fracking.” – Dan Albarran
