In december 2020, my team @Dexis Belgium and I, we won the Belgian ICT/Digital Project of the Year 2020. (cfr: Data News CIO Of The Year) Congrats to my colleagues. Top Job.
We enhanced our ERP system and BPM with 7 artificial neural networks with +500 Million input parameters. Supporting 4 languages with specific technical vocabulary. Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing are the keywords here.
Even though it was a technical challenge, the change management was equally tough. Very glad I could count on several business stakeholders to roll out this project.
It was very hard for co-workers to trust a machine because it makes decisions and assigns tasks to them based on technical expertise and availability (workload).
If you are wondering why our project is called Phoebe, well here is why: Phoebe is a Greek mythological titan. The goddess of ‘clear intellect’. She was the 3rd goddess to protect the Oracle of Delphi. Thinking of Oracle of Delphi, I think about premonitions, intelligence, prophesies, something magical. In the mind of an IT’er , the link to Artificial Intelligence is easily made. Or, am I too nerdy ?
