Demystifying Artificial Intelligence for Businesses

 

Demystifying Artificial Intelligence

The Digital evolution is here in full swing, and digital applications and artificial intelligence are fast becoming the norm for every organisation, business, school, charity and home. This digital transformation will revolutionise society forever. However, there is no guarantee your Business will survive this digital transformation. One of the biggest reasons for this is the limited access people have to the knowledge of  Artificial Intelligence; this is because people have formed business habits that are non-digital, and have worked and grown businesses without being skilled in Artificial Intelligence. Hence their attitudes are one of indifference.

A lack of awareness of Artificial Intelligence is delaying transformation and may lead to business failure

There are two hard truths everybody must face especially businesses.

 

  • Artificial Intelligence is not an option; it is a Core element of business going forward.
  • Embracing Artificial Intelligence can be the single factor that keeps you/your business afloat in 2019 and onwards.

 

If you still are a bit unsure of what Artificial Intelligence is or what It can do for your business, I’ll give you a gentle nudge. So have you ever spoken to Siri ? that is if you use Apple phones or Ipads. Or have you ever voice  commanded your phone to dial a number, or have you used your voice to access your bank account? These are all functions of Artificial Intelligence, and there are many more examples.

So, what should I as a business owner be doing?  Good question! One of the simplest and most effective ways of using Artificial Intelligence is by using them more and more in your customer service and marketing through to sales strategies. This can be achieved by dedicating chatbots to your customer services and  end to end sales.

 

Join us for a  FREE presentation on how this can help transform your business, and act as an extremely efficient member of your workforce.

Believe me, I used to be so nervous to speak in Public, let alone PITCH! It was real type of fear. You can probably identify with this?

I used to feel unworthy, and like an Imposter, like a fraud, and I felt I didn’t deserve to offer anything to anyone!

General Data Protection Regulation

Six key factors you need to know about the General Data Protection Regulation coming into force on 25 May 2018

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching, yet according to a recent Experian survey over 25% of those asked were ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ prepared for GDPR.

This statistic seems to show that, despite the publicity surrounding GDPR, many businesses are unaware of what GDPR means for them or are unsure of what to do next.

First of all, you should be aware of why GDPR is being introduced and who it affects.

UK businesses currently operate under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). The world has since become digital, meaning a radical shift in the volume, variety and speed of data that is produced.

And since data has become such a big part of business, the GDPR heavily focuses on protecting individuals and their data, by having transparency and customer interest at its core.

The GDPR applies to all business in the EU that collect, store and process personal data.

It’s important to remember that business data can also be personal data, a sole trader’s email address, for example, may also be their personal email address.

If this applies to your business, it’s in your best interest to be aware of the GDPR and take action sooner rather than later.

The businesses who are able to build trust and be transparent, will be the ones who thrive in the new GDPR era.

Once you have a good idea of what exactly GDPR is and who it applies to, you should be aware of the six key elements. These elements outline some of the most important individuals’ rights, as well as business requirements.

  1. Rights of Individuals

At the core of the GDPR is the theme of keeping individuals’ rights and interests front of mind at all times. Under the new regulation your customers will have the following rights:

The right to be informed (see below for more information)

The right of access

The right to rectification

The right to erase (see below for more information)

The right to restrict processing

The right to data portability

The right to object

Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling

More information on the rights of Individuals can be found on the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website. https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/

 

  1. Right to be informed

Businesses must be sure to provide details on how customers information will be processed and why.

Privacy policies also will need updating to reflect this and be in line with GDPR requirements. Don’t forget that any policy changes will need communicating to both new and existing customers.

  1. Right to erasure (or ‘right to be forgotten’)

Individuals will now be able to request that their data is deleted.

This doesn’t give people an absolute right to be erased or forgotten, however it is possible under certain circumstances. For example, situations where there is no longer a compelling reason for the data to remain on file.

There are also occasions where this request can be refused. That is, when personal data has been processed for one of the following reasons:

To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information

To comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority

For public health purposes in the public interest

Archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research historical research or statistical purposes

The exercise or defence of legal claims

  1. Data protection officer

As part of the new GDPR, it is a requirement that under certain circumstances a data protection officer (DPO) must be appointed.

This requirement would apply if, for example, you are carrying out large scale processing of special categories of data, or processing data relating to criminal convictions or offences. Public authorities will also need to appoint a DPO.

Of course, you may still appoint a DPO even if you’re not required to and this may be something to consider, to ensure that you have the resources and skills to manage your other GDPR obligations.

More information on DPOs can be found on the ICO website.

  1. Obligations on data processors

According to the ICO, a data controller “determines the purposes and means of processing personal data” and a data processor “is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a controller”.

Under the DPA, the statutory obligations are on data controllers only.

However, the GDPR sees data processors being given new responsibilities around the security of personal data during processing activities. Data Processors will also be legally accountable for compliance outside of contract terms.

  1. Data protection impact assessment

A data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is a tool which the GDPR promotes so that businesses can effectively assess and comply with their own data protection obligations.

They allow you to identify and resolve any issues that may lead to non-compliance and the resulting costs and reputational damage that may ensue.

You are required to conduct a DPIA where the processing of data is likely to result in high risk to the rights and freedom of Individuals

Walking Dead?

WALKING DEAD

This is the term used to describe people who have MURDERED their gifts and dreams to comply with “NORMALCY”.

Wandering through the year, hiding under the shadow of being BUSY and the Infamous excuse about the CHILDREN. I am disappointed that you are being robbed daily of your rightful inheritance because you are afraid to fight for what should be yours. You keep hoping that somehow you will find a lucky break without using forceful action. But you won’t! You have to make demands where life and success are concerned.

Why do you think, society is falling in many places! YES because you once again have not provided the true answer!  GOSH… I know you can do it, and you know you know you can do it!

Abandoned or disappointed by your Network?

Sometime’s we all feel or know people have let us down, and sometimes we know, if we want to tell the truth we have let ourselves down even more!

This week in my Private Masterclass, I am going to discuss how we can utilise the Scale of Preference tool. For those who do not know what a scale of preference tool is, the tool is mostly used by economists to help measure and assess preferences and priorities.

Interestingly you can, transfer the use of this tool and use it to get the same results in other areas including using it to measure priorities and preferences in your Social network, Business network and Importantly on yourself.

I am going to share a few lines on how you should use this tool to measure the value of your Social network.

Prioritisation (Listing actions in order of importance)

A scale of preference will list from top to bottom things that are most important to use, this list may be one to five or one to ten. The priorities on the top receive maximum attention.

A scale of preference is not a Wishlist and is not about words and idle promises, but about actions. If you are never featured as a  priority in your social networks scale of preference, and you are feeling left out, excluded or excommunicated I have news for you, that pain or awkward feeling is not necessarily bad. It is, in fact, a wake-up call to challenge you from being too comfortable where you are.

Being prioritised in your social networks is not about words and idle promises, but about actions, between you and your friends or colleagues. If you are never a priority to your friends or colleagues and never up their on their scale of preference, then you need to reposition yourself.

By this I mean, If your “Reasonable well-defined requests” are never met. You are not on the top ten list!

What could make this uncomfortable is if all or most of their “Reasonable well-defined requests” are met by you!

This means there is no Reciprocity and your Social Value Relationship is lopsided!  And this lop side is not in your favour!

Solution

Abandoned or disappointed by your Network? Thinking

Take a step back, have some quiet time and revisit your scale of preference.

Ask yourself why these “ungrateful people” are on your scale of preference. Can someone else do what you require from them?

More importantly, take out time to understand “Delayed gratification” are you too eager for something that is great? But might require you to delay receiving this to keep your self-dignity?

To get to grips with this and more, join our  Business club or Private mastermind group.

Your Leadership Time Lease!

 Time lease

Oracle smiled ever so gently and started sharing the true story, the story that made Silicon Valley, Dubai, London, New York and Beijing.

 

Before clocks existed and Men could count days, time was recorded solely on the holy rock buried in the heart of the city of Oracle. This was far away from earth at the centre of the Milky way. Traveling spirits arriving on earth were sent with small stones, smaller than pebbles, this is where the other part of their time lease was buried.

 

The great oracle leased out, these stones, smaller than pebbles to the parents of newborn children and these stones recorded how long you would live on earth. At the appointed date and time, Oracle would call from his divine palace and mystically call for the return of the stones, which also meant the end of the time lease or as humans would say “Death”. Within this time people who have been leased time needed to discover their divine call on earth and then focus and run the race to fulfil that call; all before the stone was mystically summoned back.

 

Between 1910 and 2010, Oracle divinely proclaimed four special assignments.  Only ten million people, born in that time bracket 1910 to 2010, because he knew  “Mankind”. He knew some would disobey, some would fail, some would be caught up with the pride of life and have a perverse opinion/attitude to the call, and only some would make it through.

 

Oracle in his divine wisdom, made four proclamations and declared them assignments that must be fulfilled.

Your Leadership Time Lease! Oracle1

(A) A life of serving others and then being served (Which could be risky as not all practice reciprocity). Oracle gave this gift to the world because he knew that after the hurt and pain people had gone through after the Two world wars and Slavery, love and patience needed to be demonstrated so the grieving souls of many could find solace, peace and love; and eventually start to blossom again.  Some of the people he gave the call to that obeyed include  Mother Theresa, President JF Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.

 

 

 

(B) A Life of many words but few actions (Playing life safe but limited). Oracle gave this special assignment, as a gift to the world because he wanted to let people see how painful it was to not live by your word. So, he made sure many adults would tell children: “I promise to pick you up or buy you a gift and have the child’s world filled to the brim with excitement only to be disappointed by a flimsy excuse”. He also allowed such people to grow into adults who would say many things to eager neighbours or people in need of help, only to disappoint them later.  To make the story one everyone would remember, Oracle permitted a few to come into some key positions of power and let them disappoint, with their words and then use their actions to only judge, accuse and remain indecisive. ( Like many people on our streets, neighbourhoods, communities and even our offices)

 

 

 

(C) A life where you live serving someone else’s call in part or full.  Oracle looked at me in a special way. Oracle said these are people full of potential gifts and abilities destined for greatness but had to deliberately make a choice. A choice of leaving the familiar and safe for the risky but potentially fulfilling. Otherwise, they would only excel within the confines of someone else’s call. But remember the bigger picture, we all are in different ways part of someone else’s call. By nationality, gender etc.(I am sure you can think of people who fit in here)

 

 

(D) A life of leading.  Suddenly the room became dark and I felt a chill, Oracle said to me “I want you to share this with your network on Earth” I have given you all one-time lease each and I will not give you another!   I already know you are leading and leading quite well, but I am unhappy about one thing. This one thing you need to do 100 times more. You see I gave all of you stones. I am the Author of your existence, but I will not butt in or interfere with your life. This is the Genius stroke, the way to truly win. My heart beat so fast when Oracle said this.

 

Oracle, looked at me and said do you remember World war 2 or at the very least the films?  I nodded my head. He said Do you remember the six million Jews that died during the Holocaust, I nodded and the millions that died during the transatlantic slave trade from Africa? I was anxious and alert and managed to nod my head again.   Oracle said  A life of leading is a life of creating, serving and most especially it’s a life of Loving.  If you can not overlook or try and help others  you can never be a leader that will be marked eternally within this time lease.  As he spoke I saw some stones return to him. Some had been on earth for 80 years and some for only 20 years. Before I could think of why. Oracle looked at me and said why only 20 years?

 

Oracle said I did not call for that stone, not at all, Oracle said  Selfishness and Judgment ejected that stone from earth. The poor owner could not handle the grief of rejection again and drugs overwhelmed them.  Oracle said    “ A life of leading, a life of selfless leading will be the crown jewel for eternity for anyone who wants to master the time lease.

Rules and Secrets from Oracle

The first rule of Increase under the time lease law is identify and solve a problem with Joy and the second rule is you will be rewarded according to the measure of your targeted value-adding activity.

 

By this tear my eyes welled up and my emotions convicted me, I must change the way I help and my motives behind business.

 

My Question:

How have you served your vision? Or somebody else’s vision? Have you ever considered or thought that YOUR delaying to serve/help is the reason why some great destinies are not succeeding in this time lease?

Do you know if you were willing to lead in identifying and solving other problems out there your participation would be facilitating destiny? Ray Kroc fulfilled it for MacDonald’s

 

Selfishness is not an option only a sure route to Eternal FAILURE

 

Your Challenge

What is your WHY here on Earth? Which category or categories do you fit in under Oracle’s proclamation that is if you were born between 1910 and 2010. Answer and act decisively before your stone is recalled by Oracle.

 

It’s action time
