Episode Transcript

Organizations need access to digital infrastructure and communications networks to leverage AI in a cost effective way. In this episode, Bill sits down with Greg Cudahy, Global Leader of TMT and Global Industries AI Leader at EY, to discuss digital infrastructure in an emerging AI world. The two talk about the judgment calls we will have to make about AI and how culture impacts AI use.

Key Quotes:

“The people part of generative AI is every bit as important to get traction as the technology is.”

“All the forecasts are saying that roughly 75 percent of the data over the next 10 years that we see, that's acted upon for AI or any other business use, is going to come from edge computing. It's a groundswell. This is a huge trend.”

“As edge computing rises, you're creating more points of entry for bad actors. So the importance of cyber has never been higher.”

“Moving all this data that AI requires means huge investment in communications networks, even more than we've got today…. People don't think about moving the data. They think about what I'm going to do with it. They don't think about what this gigantic swell of volume of data is going to go….Enabling communications infrastructure has got to be a priority for virtually every nation state right now.”
