According to a recent Bloomberg article, “Artificial intelligence is likely to be the most disruptive force in technology in the coming decade and companies that embrace AI may get a competitive edge while those that don’t risk extinction.” There is a lot of hype out there, but in the end it is about achieving business goals. Enough of the core technologies have now been proven out (think Alexa/Siri, autonomous vehicles, visual/voice recognition, etc.) that it is only a matter of time before enterprise adoption/disruption takes off. Artificial intelligence, when combined with other emerging technologies, can deliver innovative solutions that transform businesses, disrupt markets, and leapfrog the competition.

Is it relevant yet? • Where can we take advantage of AI in our products and services? • How can we leverage AI to optimize our internal processes and capabilities? • How will AI change the competitive dynamics of my industry? • Where should we be investing to be well positioned in an AI-based future? • How to identify use cases and build a business case around AI? • How AI initiatives are different than traditional technology projects? • Where to start?
