TECH SUPPLIER Mar 2019 - Conference Proceeding: Tech Supplier - Doc # DR2019_GS2_DV
Artificial Intelligence: A Slow-Motion Explosion
These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in March 2019.
AI is an opportunity and a risk. AI is pervasive and emerging. AI is promising and challenging. What is clear is that AI is different from other technological innovations. Never in the history of IT have humans tried to infuse autonomous machine decision making into enterprise processes and consumer lives within our ethical, legal, and societal norms. And yet, many enterprises are starting to do just that. They are building natural language digital assistants; incorporating image, video, and audio analytics into applications; and developing intelligent recommendation engines. They are applying a broad range of algorithms across industry and functional use cases to drive efficiency through intelligent automation and to innovate at scale.
Dan Vesset presents IDC's latest research about spending on AI technology and solutions, challenges faced by customers in adopting AI, and roadblocks faced by vendors developing and marketing AI. He presents IDC's automation evolution framework, which will help your organization cut through the hype surrounding AI, assess the likely path of market progress, and develop a road map for investing, developing, deploying, and adopting AI-based solutions.
