Artificial Intelligence is taking the world by storm. From self-driving cars to health biometrics - from predictive equipment failure to Netflix algorithms - the impact of AI is rippling across an expanding range of industries.

Why now?

If your organization isn’t working on a plan, it risks fading into the minority of businesses that aren’t, sooner than you might think.

  • Fifty-six percent of U.S. executives expect AI will transform their business within three years, according to Deloitte Insights.
  • Forrester Research estimates that cognitive computing technologies, or platforms based on AI, will be worth $1.2 trillion by 2020.

Most business leaders suspect that artificial intelligence has the power to change almost everything about the way they do business. To separate the hype from the reality, it's critical to understand what AI can and cannot do for your organization before making an investment - while learning what is possible now, what will become possible soon, and what capabilities shimmer on the horizon.
