Planning for 2018: Artificial Intelligence in Your Enterprise
Business leaders responsible for planning have to be clear on the potential transformative power of even the newest AI technology, as it could mean a powerful competitive advantage or misstep in strategy.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) extends the abilities of its human counterparts and can search, read, understand, and categorize various sets of unstructured data faster than any human or team can. This speed turns AI technology into a transformational opportunity that enterprises cannot afford to ignore.
As business complexity only continues to grow beyond standard process and applications in the digital era, CIOs, CDOs (Chief Digital Officers), and other business leaders will need to evaluate which AI technologies fit where in their enterprise.
The compilation of AI research in this Special Report will help enterprises address the dilemma of when and how to evaluate AI technologies that make up software, hardware, and services. Use it as a guide as you experiment with AI technologies in 2017, and as you convert those experiments into production in 2018.
This inaugural edition of The Aragon Research Technology Arc™ for Artificial Intelligence will help you to identify important AI technologies, choose which technologies to monitor, and determine the potential benefits of each.
