Artificial Intelligence (AI) Creates Actionable Information (AI) Are You Ready to Use It?


Artificial Intelligence (AI) Creates Actionable Information (AI) Are You Ready to Use It?

The phenomena of being able to predict the future was once the mystery of Gypsies and the skill of an individual who practiced Tasseography. But along came in-depth academic studies of the brain and the evolution of powerful computers and everything has changed. As the United States’ 16th President opined on predicting the future, he stated, “The best way to predict the future is to create it”! Precognition, or super-natural knowledge of future events, suggests an emphasis not upon mentally causing events to occur but upon predicting the occurrence of which have already been determined. Like Telepathy and clairvoyance, precognition is said to operate without recourse to the normal senses—sometimes referred to Extra Sensory Perception (ESP).

The study of the brain’s Visual Cortex and the Hippocampus have discovered why an experienced project manager often has the capability to predict the future of his/her project in such a manner to shock others and enable the realization of opportunities and avoidance of risks. While few project managers have this heavily experience based skill, the evolution of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made it possible for any project manager, willing to invest the time to understand the potential of this Actionable Information (AI) and to develop the confidence in the power of THIS AI, to become an extraordinary soothsayer. Think about the potential. Using the power of the human brain combined with power of a concept that was proven when IBM’s Deep Blue defeated the Garry Kasparov to claim the World Chess Title is unstoppable. Can AI empower everyday project managers to be able to defeat the nemesis of project uncertainty?

Simple answer: YES!

This presentation will examine the potential impacts of AI on critical areas in the management of today’s projects. The value of AI in the areas of planning, risk management, change impact, learning curve extrapolation and human resource productivity. Throughout my 55 year project management career I have lived by B.J. Harvey’s saying; “Whatever happened in the past belongs in the past. Learn from it, grow, and move on. Don’t let it determine your future”!

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand what AI is and where it comes from
  • Know what value add will be realized by project managers
  • Understand the value of projections from history
