    AI in the Supply Chain: Cold Chain Technologies’ Ranjeet Banerjee

    AI in the Supply Chain: Cold Chain Technologies’ Ranjeet Banerjee

    When Ranjeet Banerjee talks about the work his organization, Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), does to transport vaccines and other biologics that must be temperature controlled, he stresses that the company doesn’t solely rely on technology. CCT approaches its work by first considering what problems it’s trying to solve, developing use cases, and then considering whether a technology solution might be the best way forward.
    In this episode, we learn how a combination of Ranjeet’s background in chemical engineering, his experience working in the health care space, and a holistic approach to leadership and problem-solving enable him to lead CCT to constantly innovate in the supply chain space. Ranjeet also discusses the benefits of a customer-first mindset and shares insights applicable to leaders in industries beyond health care. Read the episode transcript here.

    Democratizing Data in Hollywood: Jumpcut’s Kartik Hosanagar

    Democratizing Data in Hollywood: Jumpcut’s Kartik Hosanagar

    Kartik Hosanagar wasn’t your typical Hollywood hopeful. He didn’t pack his life into a sedan, drive to Los Angeles, and work a series of part-time jobs while trying to make it big in the film industry. Kartik is a professor of business and marketing at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School who penned a screenplay while on sabbatical. When he started pitching it to potential producers, he quickly discovered that the film industry can be hesitant to take risks on new writers and directors — which often means that diverse talent is overlooked. So, to help unknown talent to break into the entertainment industry, he got to work founding Jumpcut, a venture-funded startup that aims to uncover new voices.
    In the first episode of Season 3 of Me, Myself, and AI, our hosts talk with Kartik about how Jumpcut uses AI to identify creative individuals and help them develop their ideas into studio-ready productions. Read the episode transcript here.

Me, myself and AI

This podcast is great for a thoughtful approach to AI. The guests are remarkable and the hosts incredibly knowledgeable.

The podcast has been helpful to me, a novice interested in ai applications in medicine even though most episodes have been on other topics. There is a lot to be learned from the use of ai in business and other applications.

I look forward to the fall season.

Great look at AI use cases - fun guests & hosts

Love the hosts and guests on this show - very fun mix of companies and focuses. As someone on the AI creation side, I particularly appreciate hearing about companies’ experiences deploying AI for employees with non-AI backgrounds to use.
