Podcast series on AI in the enterprise with Emmanuel Vignon, CEO of Sicara


On the occasion of the World AI Cannes Festival, we bring you a series of podcasts on AI in business with Emmanuel Vignon, CEO of Sicara. The company, founded in 2016, offers tools for companies wishing to add value to their data and leverage it.

The importance of data for businesses cannot be overstated. Knowing how to get the most out of it allows for optimization, performance improvement and cost reduction solutions. To achieve this, a data strategy is required.

Data engineering, data science but also artificial intelligence, are essential to achieve the goals set by companies, whether it is to increase revenue, improve operational efficiency or prevent the occurrence of risks such as fraud or regulatory non-compliance. Sicara was founded in 2016 to provide innovative solutions in this area, and we wanted to talk about it with Emmanuel Vignon, its CEO in this podcast series.

Readers who are fans of science fiction will naturally recognize the name Sicara, derived from Arrakis, which of course refers to Frank Herbert’s best-selling novel, Dune. For the founders of this Paris-based company, data is like the spice in the book. It is precious and offers infinite opportunities thanks to its processing by artificial intelligence.

With Emmanuel Vignon, we were interested in several themes around the use of AI for industry in particular. We first discussed the subject of industrial quality and how AI allows companies to achieve their goals.

Podcast Episode 1: How does artificial intelligence enable companies to achieve their quality goals?
This is the question we try to answer with Emmanuel Vignon, CEO of Sicara. If quality is relatively unmeasured, the cost of non-quality would reach 1 to 10% of companies’ turnover. This is a significant amount that artificial intelligence can help reduce, thanks to predictive maintenance and automated quality control. We will look at the reasons why artificial intelligence is still not widely used in industry.

In our second episode, we discussed with Emmanuel Vignon how artificial intelligence is a catalyst to transform the way we work and interact with machines.

If the advent of artificial intelligence in the enterprise is fuelling fears, they are often dystopian, and analogous to those that may have arisen from the use of the first calculators or the first computers. According to the latest surveys, employees seem to underestimate the presence of artificial intelligence in the enterprise, because it is by erasing the complexity of certain tasks, and by making itself forgotten, that it proves to be the most useful, rather than in the form of a humanoid robot taking control over humans. Emmanuel Vignon brings us keys to understand how to create AI systems that augment humans and not replace them, especially in the distribution of tasks that are entrusted to the AI and in the ability of a system to react in the case of an abnormal situation.
