Ben Lamm. Ben is the CEO of Hypergiant – a Dallas-based startup that Tony himself invested in! They’re working with big brands and businesses to bring in technology to solve real business problems. For example, Hypergiant recently teamed up with TGI Friday’s to create an AI-powered mixologist, appropriately dubbed Flanagan. Flanagan offers the customers the experience of personalized drink recommendations while simultaneously collecting more data about their preferences. It’s a win-win that enhances customer connection, and ultimately, customer loyalty.

In this episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast, host Ana dives into artificial intelligence and machine learning. Ana talks with Ben about these types of practical applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and we explore other opportunities for businesses to leverage the tech to best meet their customers’ needs. Because most industries are using outdated practices. And as we enter this new era of AI solutions, it’s time to initiate change and encourage your team to start thinking forward.

While not a highly technical talk, it’s an interesting perspective on how to position AI to business decision makers.
