It’s called artificial intelligence, but the buzz around it is very real. We hear every scenario … from how it will completely change the way we do business and drive unprecedented success – to doomsday scenarios that say the machines are taking over. Whit Andrews is a lead author of the new Gartner special report “Applied Artificial Intelligence: Applications for Machine Learning:”

“We’ve actually doubled our inquiry from last year to this year around artificial intelligence and machine learning questions. In fact, that itself was a triple from the year before. So, there really is nothing quite like that in terms of hype today. And what we’re telling people with this special report is that AI projects, they might under-deliver, they might stall, they might even fail, but it’s time for businesses to start experimenting with artificial intelligence using experimental models, in order to start learning their own lessons about AI and how it can be applied.”

What are the lessons you need to know? How can you best deploy AI and turn it into your competitive advantage? Whit Andrews shares the latest insights and best practices as we dive into the extensive contents of Gartner’s latest special research report.
