Barrenjoey AI Panel Discussion

Our Head of AI and Automation and #ForbesTechnology Council Member - Sriram Bhargav Madhav joined a Barrenjoey hosted panel discussion along with provenio board members Mike Foster and Stephen Thompson to discuss the role that AI must play in managing the pressures and costs being witnessed across Retail and FMCG supply chains respectively.

Lead by Josh Kannourakis - Co-Head of Emerging Companies Research, the discussion covered:

Key pain-points and financial impact on businesses;
the strategic importance of freight and logistics; and
the opportunities and value AI can unlock in Retail and FMCG supply chains.

The top 5 takeaways from the topical discussion:

- Strategy, picking the right Use Case and moving with Intent are key ingredients for success… and don’t hide behind technical debt!
- Big Data is no longer a precursor for AI to be effective!
- Forward plan the reallocation of your human capital to focus on high-value tasks and activities!
- Start small, scale fast must be the adopted mantra!
- AI is not astronomical anymore - both in terms of cost and adoption. However, it’s critical to choose the right partner to start your journey with, in order to achieve sustainable success & significant ROI!

Big thanks to Barrenjoey for hosting the panel discussion, the conversation flowed from market insights, technology advancements and the value businesses can create by adopting AI into their operations.

We sponsored our first football team (or soccer team depending on where you are in the world)!

On #internationalwomensday2022 we couldn't think of a more appropriate time to share our story, which highlights the on-going need to address stereotyping at the earliest ages of social and educational development.

The Provenio Fireflies is an all-girls team who compete in a Mixed Summer League (before all the rain, as depicted in the photo) that is predominately dominated by boys' teams.

This is no problem for the team as they love a challenge and the physical aspect to their game. And, as for skills, well, they let their football (and the scoreline) do the talking.

As impressive as the Fireflies are, we're most proud of their resilience. You see, week-in-week-out, the team endures sexist comments about being "just a team of silly girls". Comments such as 'girls don't know how to kick a ball' or 'they'll be left crying like little babies, when they lose'.

Hearing such comments directed towards the girls really drove home that there's still so much work that needs to be done to break through those stereotypes - many of which get carried through to later adult life - often manifesting into both conscious and unconscious bias.

This story ends with a positive outlook, because at every game where the Fireflies encountered those sexist and discriminative comments, they convincingly won. Every. Single. Game. But they didn't only win the game, they won the respect of their opposition, admiration of the match officials and all the spectators.

So, we'd like to think that the Provenio Fireflies have helped make a little difference in tackling some of those stereotypes (pun intended) and moving a step closer to breaking the bias.

After meeting with lots of great applicants, we knew that Deepansh's passion for AI, underpinned by his great personality and not to mention a Master of Science in IT with a specialisation in AI and Database Systems, meant he was the perfect match for us!

He'll get the chance to contribute to the development of some of our Digital Workers and we’ll show him some of the principles that we apply to our human-centred AI solutions.

the grass roots edition:creating an early interest in AI

In celebration of #IWD2021 we ran our first AI Grass Roots workshop, with a specific focus on women in tech!

It was a great success and there was lots of fun, learning and pizza!

The initiative was created with IWD in mind, but also because we've experienced firsthand, the challenges of being able to attract female talent... so the importance of getting girl's interested in S.T.E.M subjects at the grass roots level is really important to us! And who knows, some of these girls could go onto be the next AI rockstar like our good friend Tapati Bandopadhyay, PhD-AI from AISWITCH.ORG

We all had a great time and will be building on this with our next session already being planned for, with more girls and boys wanting to take part!

A big thanks to our team members who helped pull this together and make it a success, and to our participants who gave up some of their Sunday afternoon to attend the workshop.
