When it comes to Artificial Intelligence (AI) many thoughts cross our minds from Apple’s Siri, to Microsoft’s Cortana and probably Amazon’s Alexa or even the life-threatening robots that many think are out to extinguish humanity.
But then what exactly is AI? Do we really have a definite answer to this? Interestingly, AI has been around for decades but like most technologies, it is experiencing a strong surge among businesses now.
This is because of the amount of data generated daily and the fact that the analysis tools that help organizations manage their data are also becoming more accessible.
In 2018, Gartner predicted that the AI market will be worth $1.2 trillion, indicating that that around half of companies surveyed are planning to adopt some form of AI and Machine Learning solutions soon.
While Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are important tools for businesses looking forward, there is a big gap in the overall know-how that business leaders are facing today.
