    Episode 68: Moderna's AI Journey into Generative AI with Andrew Giessel, Executive Director of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

    Episode description:
    In the season finale of Agile Giants, we're thrilled to welcome Andrew Giessel, Executive Director of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at Moderna.
    I first crossed paths with Andrew when Moderna’s AI Academy was launched in collaboration with CMU.  
    I can attest to the incredible work he's been doing for years at Moderna.  Andrew was the first member of Moderna’s Data Science team and he has been at the forefront of Data Science and AI at Moderna for years.
    His involvement hasn’t stopped with this current Generative AI revolution. He played a crucial role in quickly helping all of Moderna start incorporating it into their workflows through a tool he conceived and launched called mChat.
    We talk about all of this and where AI is heading in healthcare in this season finale.

Great insightful podcast on corporate innovation

Sean Ammirati is “the” person to follow in the corporate entrepreneurship space. I would definitely recommend this podcast if you’re interested in hearing from corporate entrepreneurship leaders and learning more about how innovation is growing in major companies by looking at actual examples of corporate entrepreneurship at a variety of industries and companies.

Interviews with corporate superstars.

Today it feels like the same 50 folks do all the podcasts and tell the same story over and over again. Agile Giants is the opposite Sean gets leaders of the corporate world who rarely do interviews and they share behind the scenes of how corporate innovation really works.

Greg4579 ,

Really insightful

Working in product management for a large corporation, I find this topic to be extremely relevant and timely. The interviews in the first couple of episodes I have listened to have all provided me with valuable insights. Keep them coming!
