AI Is Hard: What Does It Take to Make AI Work for You?

By: David SchubmehlResearch Director, Cognitive/Artificial Intelligence Systems

Abstract

These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in February and March 2018.

AI is hard! Is your company building a digital assistant, incorporating image or audio analytics into an application, or developing an intelligent recommendation engine? IDC research shows that an ever-expanding number of vendors are doing so already. The road to AI-enabled solutions is paved with good intentions but littered with roadblocks such as incomplete cognitive/AI software platforms, difficult-to-use open source components, and a lack of staff with relevant expertise. In this session, IDC's lead cognitive/AI solutions analyst, David Schubmehl, examines end-user and vendor AI requirements that span over a dozen functional technology categories. Schubmehl draws on lessons from organizations at various stages of adopting open source and commercial AI technology. Recommendations from this session will help your company develop a framework for assessing whether and when to build, buy, or partner for AI capabilities.
