It’s no wonder that Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor of Wired magazine, said that the “business plans of the next 10,000 startups are easy to forecast: take X and add AI”. There is now virtually no sector that is not being disrupted by the advanced data analytics and insights that AI technologies allow. Financial services, logistics, transport, human resources, telecoms, health… AI is already here and radically changing how these industries operate. What about your business?
The world of AI is moving fast. Global revenues from AI for business applications is projected to grow from $1.62 billion in 2018 to $31.2 billion in 2025. According to Forbes, more than 8 in 10 businesses believe investing in AI will lead to greater competitive advantages, while almost two-thirds believe the pressure to reduce costs will require the use of AI. What can you do to make the most of these technologies?
