Better Together: Bring a Toolbox, Not Just a Screwdriver

The industry is saturated with terms like machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), which are expected to solve any problem that might arise. These are powerful tools, but in the same way a power drill cannot build a deck, ML or AI alone will not be enough to build a larger solution to deeper industry issues. Materials, blueprints and builders are still necessary.
