We do this divergence by using AI The Game, a card game that we developed which helps you discover how you can tackle business challenges with artificial
While playing AI The Game, the group first agrees on a company they want to innovate. Each player is then given a perspective card (CTO, CEO, employee, ..), and it is from this perspective that each player looks at the common company. As COO, you look at a chain of operational activities, but as a customer you only care about the end product. Thereby, the the game makes the players look at the same company from different angles, make them collaborate rather than compete.
The players have to come up with use cases using the Task cards they are given. There are 30 Task cards in the game, each with a prototypical machine learning task, image classification, for instance, or sentiment analysis. After thinking for a couple of minutes, they players pitch their use case to each other.
The players can motivate their use case by the Value cards, it helps them to to check how valuable the idea is; is it a solution for one person or for the entire company? And is it a difficult task, or something that an intern could arrange?
