I recently traveled to Paris and got to spend some time with my colleague Julien Simon who is AI Evangelist at AWS. I wanted to ask him some questions, so I did :)

The discussion is trying to answer the following questions:

  • Why is everyone talking about AI?
  • Why has it been traditionally hard to do AI?
  • What are the business needs?
  • How can companies start doing AI today ?
  • AI is data intensive right? What does it mean for a company — how should data be treated even if you don’t do AI today?
