Enhancing Workplace Safety with the Adoption of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence may sound like something from the future, but it is already changing the way companies enhance their workplace safety programs. On this episode of the podcast, Editor Sydny Shepard sits down with SparkCognition's Stephen Gold to talk about how advanced technologies can seamlessly fit in with your program today.

According to SparkCognition, you don’t need to wait for “the future” to begin taking advantage of all the benefits that artificial intelligence can offer. In today’s episode of the podcast, I have the extreme pleasure of talking with Stephen Gold, a wonderful resource for all things AI or, as you’ll hear in this episode, Visual AI.

Steve is the Chief Marketing Officer at SparkCognition, a global AI solutions provider delivering enterprise-class solutions to solve the most critical business challenges. He brings over 30 years of experience to this role, including B2B application software development, AI and data science, and IoT services.

He holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois and graduated with distinction with an MBA from Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business. He has been featured on various media outlets, including CNN, CNBC, Today Show, Fox News, and has been a guest speaker at major industry events and universities.

As a proponent of technology, and the adoption of technology in the safety and health space, it was really wonderful to ask Steve all the questions our listeners would like to have answers for.
