Executive Spotlight With Yext Public Sector VP LC Cook Focuses on AI, Emerging Tech’s Impact on Federal Landscape

ExecutiveBiz featured LC Cook, vice president of public sector at Yext, in its most recent Executive Spotlight interview published Tuesday. She underscored the importance of artificial intelligence development and the impact of emerging technologies on the federal landscape. Cooks also discussed the core values of company culture, the federal agency challenges in staying ahead of the technology curve and Yext’s efforts to assist in AI implementation and innovation.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Cook about the latest trends in technology:

“As new technology emerges, it’s not uncommon to see a lag in adoption within the Federal space. Sometimes this is due to a shroud of uncertainty about what a technology is or does.

For example, some in the government viewed AI as a product and not as a type of computer science. Grasping the concept of multiple algorithms to execute a series of tasks was a challenge. Now, more than ever, there is a true handshake between the public and private sectors which is accelerating the government’s appetite for emerging technologies.”
