Entrepreneurial AI in the Enterprise: LG Nova's Shilpa Prasad

A former startup employee herself, Shilpa Prasad knows the level of commitment and effort required to begin a new venture.

In her role, Shilpa identifies promising startups — particularly those working with AI — and coaches and nurtures entrepreneurs while keeping a close eye on the products that might one day find their way into LG’s ecosystem.

On this episode, Shilpa explains how keeping a finger on the pulse of startups helps LG Electronics stay open to innovation and new business opportunities. She also discusses why artificial intelligence is at the forefront of her work with startups, and the promising future she sees for using augmented reality and AI technologies to change how skills training is delivered.
