Me, Myself, and AI: A New Podcast on Artificial Intelligence in Business

Why do only 10% of companies succeed with AI? For four years, BCG and MIT SMR have studied corporate adoption of artificial intelligence. The most recent research has found that 90% of organizations do not realize significant financial benefit from the technology. So, what are the other 10% doing right? Each episode of Me, Myself, and AI features a discussion with a leading practitioner helping his or her organization gain measurable value from AI.

Ranjeet Banerjee, CEO of Cold Chain Technologies, joins the Me, Myself, and AI podcast to explain how the transportation and logistics company uses artificial intelligence to transport biologics and vaccines, including the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, safely and efficiently. He also describes CCT’s use of AI to innovate in the supply chain space and reduce the amount of waste associated with temperature-controlled pharmaceutical shipments.

More on Me, Myself, and AI: Whether they work at a born-digital organization or (more often) a legacy company, our guests all have actionable insights to share. The series covers strategy, deployment, human-and-machine collaboration, and scaling. We also explore what first interested these leaders in AI, how they got to where they are today, and what keeps them excited about their field.
