Our latest co-branded edition of The Insights Review
, produced by the Internal Consulting group (ICG) is out now. ICG is a global network of consultants, with the goal of aiding professionals in their career effectiveness and development.
The Insights Review
is a collection of abstract reviews of relevant ‘open published’ perspectives and research reports. The abstracts allow you to scan quickly for the most relevant content, and include links to the full articles.
Each edition includes an ‘Article of the month’. May 2018's top article is called 'Notes from the AI frontier: applications and value of deep learning' by McKinsey, which ICG says is based on analysing its utility
"in 400 use-cases McKinsey identified across functions and industries".
The abstract says: "This granular bottom-up approach leads to valuable insights, such as: AI significantly enhances traditional analytics, rather than creating lots of new applications; its greatest impact will be in business functions where there is lots of data captured for the AI to train on (eg, marketing and sales, supply chain); utility increases with the quantity of data available and doesn’t plateau like traditional analytics; but getting, labeling, and updating sufficiently large volumes of data is the biggest barrier to adopting and using AI, and an area of concern for privacy regulators and society at large."
Sections include ‘Corporate finance/M&A’; ‘Risk & compliance’; ‘Innovation & disruption’; ‘Cyber security’; ‘Fintech’; and ‘Corporate & investment banking’, to name a few.
We hope you enjoy reading it and please do get in touch with any comments and suggestions.
