Three Keys to Getting Real Business Value From AI

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to capture the attention of the business community, some predict that this technology will foster the greatest period of transformation since the Industrial Revolution.

Get the Right Players in Place. While your existing teams know your business inside and out, you will still need to bring in a dedicated AI expert to guide the mission and fill in any knowledge gaps among key employees.

Choose carefully, as you are going to need to lean on that company’s expertise for years to come.
