AI & Machine Learning: An Enterprise Guide

A collection of information resources designed to help enterprise IT professionals launch and advance their artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation initiatives.

Set the buzz factor aside for a minute, and understand that artificial intelligence is doing real work for real companies. Even in the early stages of implementation, AI is providing enterprise organizations with benefits: Efficiency in operations, cybersecurity protections, innovation, and stronger customer relationships.

However, the race to implement AI and machine learning also raises citizen privacy concerns. There have been revelations about the potential for algorithmic bias reflected in data sources. There has been speculation about AI applications going rogue. Executives worry about whether they are moving fast enough with their AI and machine language initiatives, and where the concepts offer the greatest rewards. Then there is the job front: Who will AI put out of work, and where will enterprise managers find the AI talent they need to compete?
