Last week, Martin Reje, Navigio’s Tech Lead and Nils Hulth, CPO at Imint, hosted a session for CEOs to discuss this matter and emphasize the importance of skill transfer and new organizational structures to successfully implement AI.
Martin emphasizes the significance of the changes companies will encounter in the future: “The evolution driven by AI is in motion. How organizations structure themselves to capture these possibilities, as well as the required skill sets within the organization, will be different compared to before. Ways of working and required competencies will undergo significant shifts as a result. We are actively discussing and collaborating with our clients in this domain to help them with this transition.”
“AI is opening up exciting possibilities that we all need to explore. Through structured experimentation, we can simultaneously learn and shape how AI can benefit us. The sooner we embark on this journey, the greater the advantage.” conveys Nils.
