Artificial Intelligence: The Elusive Prize

Infosys

Few topics garner more headlines today than artificial intelligence, and for good reason. Despite the fact tech luminaries can’t seem to agree if it’s the world’s greatest existential threat or saviour, there is little debate about its ability to fundamentally transform everyday life and the business models that support it. As Dr. Anastassia Lauterbach, Board member of Dun & Bradstreet, recently put it, “The internet disrupted 20% of all business models. Artificial intelligence will disrupt the remaining 80%.”

Seeing a tectonic opportunity, innovators and investors across the globe have poured unprecedented resources into the sector, a fact highlighted by Softbank’s announcement last year of a gargantuan $100bn tech fund that will focus heavily on AI. To put that number in perspective, the total amount of venture capital invested in the U.S. in 2016 across ALL sectors was “only” $69bn.

As global markets are now flooded with start-ups and large consulting firms peddling AI, it has never been more important for corporations to have thoughtful answers to a pair of basic questions: how is AI likely to impact my business and what should I be doing to get in front of it?
