Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1 , and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of fantasy novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the real potential to: improve productivity of internal applications, increase revenue through enhanced customer interaction and improved customer acquisition, reduce costs by optimizing operations, and enhance products and services with “smart” functionality such as vision and voice interaction and control. This paper provides executives with an overview of Artificial Intelligence and the underlying technologies of Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL).
