Transformative AI in Industry
David Regan, managing director of revenue at Accenture, says today, AI is being deployed to help humans with routine tasks, and, in the future, AI will support increasingly complex tasks. “AI can be seen as a tool to increase service, decrease costs, expedite delivery, and improve accuracy,” Regan says. “In a tight economy, those companies that can best differentiate on service, manage costs, and that are faster to market and more reliable will thrive. Taking advantage of the power (of) AI to drive these initiatives will give organizations real advantage.”
AI is playing an important role in companies’ digital transformations, offering the benefit of augmented intelligence and, eventually, the ability to complete intricate or multifaceted tasks. Gartner says the number of enterprises implementing AI grew 270% in the past four years and tripled in the past year, rising from 25% in 2018 to 37% in 2019.
