Artificial intelligence (AI) has gone beyond the way of the buzzword, all hype and no substance. Indeed, the technology is being increasingly seen in the enterprise as important in concert with other technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing.
A report from KPMG last month explored how artificial intelligence would look to influence business. Among millennial respondents, AI came out on top as the biggest technological priority, ahead of IoT and 5G. Yet among those polled who said they were business leaders, it was less of a priority compared with robotic process automation (RPA). The report noted, however, that investing in RPA can be seen as a smoother route to future AI investment.
