Ayna.AI recently hosted Melyssa Plunkett-Gomez, Head of Business Development at Samba Nova Systems at our biannual webinar Ayna.AI Critical Leaders’ Group (A-CLG). In her keynote talk, Melyssa discussed the transformative impact of AI on enterprises where she highlighted the rapid evolution of open-source AI models, emphasizing their transparency and explainability.  

Melyssa encouraged businesses to view AI as an asset rather than just a tool, stressing the importance of strategically applying specialized models to different functions within an organization. She emphasized the significance of leveraging private data for training models, ensuring ownership, and compliance with regulations.  

Finally, she also shared practical insights, suggesting a focus on unstructured data for immediate ROI and the adoption of generative AI for tasks like code generation. The discussion touched on the future pervasiveness of AI across all business functions and the need for a comprehensive enterprise strategy.
