The cross-industry survey of more than 1,000 business and IT leaders in seven countries set out to determine the effect of artificial intelligence (AI) on return on investment, employees, and organizational leadership. [12] “In this environment, business leaders will need to rapidly and radically evolve their leadership skills, managing people and artificial intelligence to maximize both, while driving toward a shared future where AI benefits everyone.” [12] In its latest installment of the Transformers series, The Washington Post hosted key industry and thought leaders to discuss the current and future implications of artificial intelligence (“AI”). [13]

It three products: AICoRE, the AI agent, iRSP, an intelligent robot software platform, and Futurable, a future simulation AI game where every character is a fully autonomous AI. The focus of their work is to develop artificial intelligence infused with the human skill set of problem solving, learning and memory. [3] As businesses around the world continue to produce new use cases for artificial intelligence (AI), the technology?s ability to foster or eliminate a level playing field creates a growing concern about its overall power and influence on the future workforce. [14] Artificial Intelligence (AI), the study of machines that can imitate human intelligence, is undeniably revolutionizing our world, transforming the way we learn, shop, entertain, and more. [15] Artificial intelligence has exploded in the past few years with dozens of startup companies and major AI initiatives by big name firms alike. [3] Over the past two years, Salesforce has acquired three AI companies and recently announced Salesforce Einstein, their artificial intelligence service. [3] While AI is still in its infancy, 9 out of 10 C-level executives reported tangible benefits from the artificial intelligence applications in their companies. [14] This list of leading artificial intelligence companies will change and grow as quickly as AI itself. [3] These artificial intelligence companies are advancing this emerging tech through myriad variations on AI systems. [3] The leading companies in the AI sector: Please let us know of any significant artificial intelligence companies that you think we missed and leave a note in the Comments section below. [3] There is a pending boom of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, and organizations will capitalize on them as AI continues to scale, evolve and mature. [16] Narrow AI represents the infancy stage artificial intelligence is currently in, to which only basic, repetitive tasks are automated. [16] Based in California, AIBrain is an artificial intelligence company that builds AI solutions for smartphones and robotics applications. [3] She is recognized as a top influencer in marketing and artificial intelligence (AI) by Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., Wired, Hubspot, and IBM Watson. [17] Though AI has received a bad rap for stealing jobs, the artificial intelligence sector has continued to make a splash in the hiring world. [1] In the face of Artificial Intelligence, business leadership is undergoing a further shift. [2] While organizations may have the technological capabilities and human talent to infuse artificial intelligence in their organization, solid change management capabilities will be a determining factor for success. [16] Their artificial intelligence capabilities allow them to help organizations in a variety of industries including healthcare and insurance. [3] The following 25 companies are playing a role in shaping the future of artificial intelligence and its capabilities. [3] She is a contributor of Forbes and has written articles on artificial intelligence, machine learning, marketing, and the future of work. [17] His work focuses on Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Distributed Computing, and Discrete Applied Mathematics. [17] ViSenze’s artificial intelligence technology works by recommending visually similar items to users when shopping online. [3] She is also a contributor for Venturebeat, an American technology website and has authored articles on artificial intelligence, marketing, and bots. [17] Clearly, there is interest in artificial intelligence and its ability to improve the human experience, despite pushback from naysayers who warn of AI’s disruption. [3] Instead of relying on a knowledgeable human to weigh up a situation and make a plan of action, businesses can leverage Artificial Intelligence. [2] Raising over $100 million last year, Banjo makes use of artificial intelligence to comb through social media and identify real-time events and situations that are important to its partners. [3] Apple has acquired four artificial intelligence startups within the past two years, demonstrating its big step into the artificial intelligence sphere.

In the Infosys report, “artificial intelligence” is defined as “software technologies that make a computer or robot perform equal to or better than normal human computational ability in accuracy, capacity and speed. [14]

Importantly, today also offers the chance for the AI NexusLab companies — representing some of the most exciting early-stage startups using applied artificial intelligence — to tell their stories and showcase their products after months of hard work,” said John Frankel, ffVC founding partner. [4] “The Future Labs AI Summit gathers among the foremost multidisciplinary experts in the field of artificial intelligence and serves as a key moment in time to bring together New York City’s AI community. [4] Last year, PwC released a report predicting that artificial intelligence (AI) could add $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. [5] We?re at an exciting point with artificial intelligence (AI). [19] [email protected] David Lee on leadership: Design human-centered work because the world’s technology firms are building armies of people to create machine learning and artificial intelligence. [20] His talk describes how robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are rapidly reshaping companies and eliminating work that people are employed to do. [20] Alberto speaks and writes widely on people strategy, HR artificial intelligence, and the future of work. [21] I want to help people understand the coming impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning. [20] The world’s technology firms are building up armies of people capable of creating machine learning and artificial intelligence software. [20] Facebook and Micron are among the favorite ways to play the boom in artificial intelligence, according to top technology analysts. [22] It’s tempting to regard artificial intelligence as a threat to human leadership. [23] Automation, algorithms, and artificial intelligence are not only changing the nature of business, decision making and the workplace itself, but also remaking our lives. [21] Next, the organization should assess its maturity; if you don?t currently have the infrastructure in place to maintain secure and high-quality data, for example, you?re not ready for “talent with deep expertise in artificial intelligence,” he says. [5] We won’t, frankly, have a lot of time to deal with this coming change of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics. [20] Sivasubramanian?s bear detector is not exactly a killer app for artificial intelligence, but its existence is a sign that the capabilities of machine learning are becoming far more accessible. [24] Interest in artificial intelligence and machine learning in health care is accelerating and diversifying. [25] Watch highlights covering artificial intelligence, machine learning, intelligence engineering, and more. [19] He says demand for DRAM chips and NAND flash chips comes from “new and powerful technology cycles” such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality. [22] Artificial intelligence and robots are transforming how we work and live. [24] Artificial intelligence alters how work is done across industries and markets. [21] “FB has the largest audience platform in the world at a time when the advancement in deep neural network science, or artificial intelligence, is setting up for a very different computing era,” he said. [22] Shahin Farshchi examines role artificial intelligence will play in driverless cars. [19]

While timeless leadership traits like integrity and emotional intelligence will no doubt remain important, leaders in the AI age need to be humble about others? contributions, adaptable to the challenges that get thrown into their paths, steadfast in their vision of the ultimate destination on this path, and constantly engaged with the changing world around them. [23] How can we ensure leaders have these competencies? Perhaps it means developing new competency models for leadership development or renewing our focus on emotional intelligence. [5]

I think of AI not as artificial intelligence but instead “augmented” intelligence such that the software and technology augments human intelligence and decision-making skills. [6] The conference was packed with executives and technologists who were looking for ways to put artificial intelligence (AI) to work in the enterprise. [26] Briefing: Artificial intelligence Everyone?s talking about AI, but what do they really mean? Get smart on the basics and the trends for 2018. [26] Before you begin lobbying for artificial intelligence at your organization, it?s important to understand that a major investment in artificial intelligence platforms does not make sense for every business scenario, nor every business. [6] If creating a delightful customer experience is an important priority for your business, artificial intelligence tools that facilitate customer service may be an option. [6] Lastly, experiment with artificial intelligence tools that can help you solve a business problem. [6] Your shoppers are being conditioned to communicate with Siri or Alexa as a tool, without necessarily understanding that these machines filter speech using an application of artificial intelligence called Natural Language Processing. [6] IBM Watson is a technology that leverages multiple applications of artificial intelligence: natural language processing, visual recognition, machine and deep learning, and human-computer interaction. [6] Deep learning, which allows machines to learn tasks by analyzing vast amounts of data, is one of the main technologies driving the rise of artificial intelligence. [8] When an artificial intelligence tool does make sense for your strategy, will your data will be ready? Think of how Under Armour is integrating their information for a single view of their customer. [6] Even in situations where artificial intelligence tools do not experience a coordinated attack like Tay, the algorithms are likely to incorporate the bias of their creators and the input data. [6] If you?re facing a need to produce more content, artificial intelligence tools may be able to support your efforts. [6] Media outlets, such as Forbes and the American Press Association, have adopted this type of artificial intelligence tool to produce more articles, quicker. [6] The White House plans to convene a meeting on Thursday on the future of artificial intelligence in U.S. industry with major companies including Facebook, Amazon.com, Google parent Alphabet and Oracle as well as senior government officials. [27] The future will belong to countries that can surf the technological tidal wave of artificial intelligence, and while China?s efforts appear up to the challenge, the United States is swimming in the wrong direction. [28] Right now, artificial intelligence in the marketing field is largely predictive, but we don?t know what the future will hold. [6] The simplest way to think about how artificial intelligence platforms can augment your marketing strategy is to break it down by marketing priority. [6] When someone is talking about “artificial intelligence” in marketing, they are rarely talking about true artificial intelligence. [6] This partnership is an ideal marriage of sophisticated artificial intelligence and marketing. [6] One of the best-known marketing strategies currently augmented by artificial intelligence is personalization. [6] China?s dominance of artificial intelligence technology and its military applications is not only credible but likely in the absence of a massive shift in U.S. policy. [28] The reality of artificial intelligence technology doesn?t quite align with the hype. [6] We?re starting here, because algorithms are at the core of artificial intelligence technology. [6] Artificial intelligence technology can lead to reduced labor costs, optimized production and operations, more efficient timing and delivery, more precise customer personas and journey information, and more. [6] One of the most significant flaws of artificial intelligence technology right now is a vulnerability to bias. [6] Geoffrey Hinton, a computer scientist and leading expert in artificial intelligence, has helped make the University of Toronto a center of innovation in A.I. technology. [8] By far the greatest danger of artificial intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it. [6] Unfortunately, it is actually the Chinese who have accurately come to understand the Sputnik-like significance of recent progress in artificial intelligence. [28] Ready to put artificial intelligence to work at your company? Make sure to get these 10 things right. [26] This past August, Facebook employees decided to test the artificial intelligence capabilities of their chatbots. [6] The danger of artificial intelligence is that we can both overestimate its power today and underestimate its capabilities tomorrow. [6] The manifesto was also remarkably similar to several reports on the future of artificial intelligence released by the Obama administration at the end of 2016. [8] Chinese Go player Ke Jie (left) competes against Googles artificial intelligence program AlphaGo during their second match at the Future of Go Summit in Wuzhen, China in May 2017. [28] “Thanks to the size of the market and the rapid experimentation, China is going to become one of the most powerful — if not the most powerful — A.I. countries in the world,” said Kai-Fu Lee, a former Microsoft and Google executive who now runs a prominent Chinese venture capital firm dedicated to artificial intelligence. [8] If artificial intelligence is the engine powering the new industrial revolution, data is its fuel. [29] In order to leverage artificial intelligence, your data must be up to standard. [6] Credit Aaron Vincent Elkaim for The New York Times Artificial intelligence has been a focus of Chinese technologists for some time. [8] Artificial intelligence has been an almost mythological concept for years. [6] This is a key factor to consider in implementing artificial intelligence. [6] China?s strategy recognizes the essential dual-use nature of artificial intelligence. [28] Where artificial intelligence applications really succeed in content creation is in editorial planning. [6]

The reality is that many of the tools being marketed as “artificial intelligence” right now are still primitive in form. [6] This field is vast and we have only scratched the surface of “artificial intelligence in marketing” in this post. [6] Because “artificial intelligence” can be an overwhelming concept. [6] “Artificial intelligence has been a priority for the Trump administration since Day 1,” he said. [8] With a background in early childhood education, her biological understanding of development aids her in bridging the gap between artificial and human intelligence. [7]

Esther Baldwin is an Artificial Intelligence Strategist at Intel Corporation who works across a range of vertical markets to develop proof of concepts and drive thought leadership in the field of AI. She is also an Advisor to the Secretary of Commerce on the National Advisory Council for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and was previously the first Eisenhower Fellow to the Irish region. [10] Artificial Intelligence (AI) is quickly playing a role in almost every business sector. [10] Artificial Intelligence is not new – however, recent breakthroughs in deep learning that deliver accurate image and voice labeling are enabling a 4 th Industrial Revolution – led by AI. Artificial intelligence sits at the top level for any data analytics capability. [10] Artificial intelligence (AI) is an essential component to the advancement of robotics technology. [30] While doing that and helping deliver AI-focused capabilities to large organizations, we have developed a very robust platform called CORTEX. AI is not so much about artificial intelligence as it is about augmented intelligence. [31] Two months later, China?s State Council announced an ambitious national programme to overtake the United States in artificial intelligence (AI) by 2030. [32] We believe that robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformational technological development with the potential to disrupt a range of industries over the coming decades. [30] There are key ingredients needed to get started which include a clearly defined business case and usage and the data to train an artificial intelligence model. [10] Today, most of the companies are preferring to work with Artificial intelligence. [33] There is no guarantee companies mentioned remain in or out of the Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence ETF. [30] “But as a community, we still have some work to do before we can start talking about artificial intelligence really changing the landscape of our workforce.” [9] I give several keynote talks and educational workshops for executives based on my book, Applied Artificial Intelligence. [11]

There are two races – a 400-metre hurdle to develop human-like AI, or artificial general intelligence (AGI), and a 42-kilometre marathon to discover artificial super intelligence that surpasses the best human brains in virtually every field. [32] AI experts talk about the “god-slave” scenario, in which the first to develop artificial super intelligence will keep it “locked up” for fear of losing control – something a totalitarian government is more likely to do than, say, a Google. [32] Recently, as guest speaker at an event for senior lawyers, I looked at “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Shape of Things to come”. [34] Plus, human intelligence has a notable advantage over the artificial kind: its ability to read context. [9]

Artificial intelligence (AI) drives value based on business outcomes around customer experience, cost reduction and revenue generation. [35] The United States leads China in private investment in artificial intelligence (AI) and in the number and experience of its scientists. [36] These AI stocks are poised to profit as artificial intelligence technology is increasingly being used to “smarten” up just about everything from consumer electronic gadgets and cars to healthcare diagnostic tools and factory machinery. [37] “This is the kind of thing that makes people in the West have nightmares about AI and society,” says Subbarao Kambhampati, president of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) in Palo Alto and a computer scientist at Arizona State University in Tempe. [36] It’s safe to say that Mr. Putin knows plenty about power, and he believes that advances in artificial intelligence (AI) will not only change the world as we know it, but the global balance of power as well. [38] Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionize virtually every sector of the economy –from automobile manufacturing to health care delivery to building maintenance. [39] Artificial intelligence and robotics are the next advance in business, and along with these massive technological advances comes great responsibility for leadership. [40] January 30, 2018 – For artificial intelligence in healthcare to grow, organizations must improve implementation strategies, data management, and leadership training, according to an Infosys report. [12] Artificial intelligence adoption is on the rise, but businesses must improve their adoption strategies, data integrity and leadership training to reap the benefits. [12]

Artificial intelligence is a transformative technology that will drive sustainable competitive advantage and business value. [35] The only question is who will provide the artificial intelligence engines of the future, and which companies and investors will profit. [41] The most practical applications of artificial intelligence are side-by-side with Big Data and cloud-computing applications that many investors are already familiar with. [41] She addressed both the importance of training data to reduce bias as well as employing artificial intelligence in a way that itself reduces bias and broadens inclusion. [13] Think of artificial intelligence as just the natural next step now that we?ve created all this data — something has to make sense of it. [41] “In the same way Seattle was at the vanguard of the computer industry with Microsoft, and that Seattle has been big in the cloud, we are the vanguard of this artificial intelligence revolution,” Etzioni says. [39] Artificial intelligence is changing everything, and Seattle may become the hub for key elements of it. [39] Since they were featured in our list of the Top 10 Artificial Intelligence Startups in China last year, they?ve raised an additional $460 million in investments from a Chinese state startup fund, Ant Financial (Alibaba?s subsidiary) and Foxconn. [38] Case in point — Salesforce.com CRM, +1.81% has a valuable artificial intelligence application called Einstein that it provides to clients. [41] If you?re unwilling to pick a winner in the race for artificial intelligence applications, I don?t blame you. [41] The cloud, mobile, applications, and the swift rise of artificial intelligence has all but completely transformed the workplace. [40] Most scientists working on artificial intelligence aren?t trying to simulate true human intelligence at all. [41]

“Artificial intelligence” is a misunderstood term, thanks in part to dystopian views of the technology across pop culture — from the iconic Terminator to Cylons in Battlestar Galactica to HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey. [41] Type in “artificial intelligence” and “Seattle,” and Glassdoor will come up with more than 1,890 job listings at businesses running the gamut from Trupanion, the pet insurance company, to Versive, a cybersecurity firm. [39]


Spotify Stock Nears All-Time High After Getting Bullish Report Shares of Spotify Technology neared an all-time high Monday after the streaming music leader received a bullish report from a Wall Street analyst. [42] “Some of the activities of leaders will be facilitated or actually done by AI, but I don?t think you can delegate responsibility in terms of making decisions about improving performance, growing the business, all the usual leadership decisions,” says Lancefield. [2] AI can be used to automate existing tasks or be leveraged by leaders to create new business opportunities. [15] As AI gradually takes on the tasks traditionally carried out by the leaders and the led, what effect will this have on business hierarchies? Lancefield envisions more open collaboration both within and between organisations. [2]

Ensure a healthy culture for people and AI. While promoting an open, collaborative culture is important for successful AI implementations, leaders need to consider the impact of AI on people and make sure every member of the organization has an opportunity to thrive. [15] It is important for talent leaders to begin to wrap their heads around how AI is currently being leveraged within their organizations. [16] Given AI?s inevitable influence as a driving force that will change every single workforce on the planet, it’s imperative that talent leaders know what AI really is and why they should care. [16] Google, clearly a leader in AI, is on a massive AI acquisition binge, having acquired 12 AI startups in four years. [3] Our conclusion? Leaders are not only here to stay but are becoming more important in the era of AI. [15] The responsibilities fall on the shoulders of leaders to ensure AI implementations follow ethical and legal standards. [15] While we all know what AI is and its impact, there are some thought leaders who are experts in this broad and exciting field. [17] Business leaders are well aware of AI?s potential ethical and human dilemmas, as 69 percent of C-level executives reported that their employees are concerned that AI technologies will replace them. [14] Transparency about AI initiatives and their benefits can also improve AI effectiveness: Business leaders can uncover new opportunities and head off potential risks before they cause serious problems or harm to the company?s customers, employees or reputation. [14] While many leaders take a positive view, the data also revealed an area of concern with AI among business leaders in losing transparency into their business due to the technology?s ability to run autonomously. [14]

After analyzing data on thousands of leaders’ interactions with employees and coworkers, we found that AI falls short in understanding important leadership behaviors, such as coaching and delegation, as it fails to differentiate effective leadership behaviors from ineffective ones. [15]

“Leaders of the digital age need to try and tap into the full potential of the people who work for them, which means they have to have a greater understanding of what their people can do, empower them more, and also ask more questions. [2] Are you an agile leader? What other traits does a leader need to have in today?s digital business climate? Will there ever come a time where digital leaders “rely on an algorithm?? Share your thoughts and experiences. [2] If you?re a leader who spends most of your day running processes and consolidating information, a lot of your time is spent just talking about whether the information is correct. [2] Interested in learning more? Read about how DDI can help you develop and transform leaders at all levels. [15] Leveraging natural language processing and machine learning, we developed an interviewing simulation where leaders can practice interviewing skills. [15] While these traits are still valued in leaders today, gaining – and retaining – a position of authority now requires a complex cocktail of skills including cooperation, collaboration and adaptability. [2] Talent leaders will face the challenge of determining when to upskill existing roles versus when to gradually phase in new roles as part of an evolving workforce planning exercise. [16] Part of the role of digital leaders is to simplify the organisation and cut through the hierarchy. [2] This powerful tool can train leaders to ask behavioral questions to elicit job-relevant information, as well as deter them from asking biased or illegal questions (e.g., “How old are you?”). [15] Leaders in the digital age are much better at asking questions, and showing some vulnerability in what they don?t know.” [2] It depends on the willingness and the ability of their leaders to try something new, and keep things simple to cut out wasted effort.” [2]

She has expertise in designing intelligent systems into working AI systems to help understand natural intelligence. [17] Geared for busy users, x.ai’s intelligence virtual assistant Amy helps users schedule meetings. [3]

CloudMinds is developing what it calls an end-to-end cloud intelligence (CI) system called Human Augmented Robotics Intelligence (HARI) platform for robots. [3]

We help leaders gain insight on the applications and implications of AI in their industry. [14] Business leaders will also need to evolve their skills to gain a deeper understanding of the technologies that are driving their business forward in the years to come. [14] Adelyn Zhou is a business leader, technologist, and speaker who is passionate about the intersection of marketing, automation, and the future of work. [17]

TechEmergence is the best place for leaders to get the facts and strategic insight they need to stay on the winning end of AI?s inevitable disruptions. [14] And, if you do, you may be wondering if there will still be a place for leaders in the workplace in 20 years. [15]

What makes a good leader? In the past, leadership qualities focused on strength, decisiveness, and the ability to successfully carry out a plan. [2]

Team leaders are responsible help workers transition by facilitating skills training and identified the learning journey that employees need to have to acquire the right knowledge and abilities to interact in the age of AI and automation. [21] Bulkoski says there are three steps to this process: First, the executive team – including the L&D leader – should discuss business goals, how AI can – and should – help accomplish those goals, and what talent is needed to do so. [5] That includes leaders, and that?s why, earlier this summer, Heidrick & Struggles announced a new AI specialty practice to help businesses hire and develop senior talent who can help them navigate this brave new world. [5]

As companies invest more heavily in AI, they will need to invest also in leaders who understand it. [5] Puneet Shivam, president of Avendus Capital U.S., an investment bank, says: “The leaders in the AI cloud will become the most powerful companies in history.” [24] Successful leaders will communicate properly the impact of AI in the workplace and address how work would change and what every employee?s role will be. [21] In addition to being able to lead AI strategy, leaders must also adapt to changes in what it means to be a leader. [5] Leaders, of course, are one of those job profiles – because they must lead AI strategy and manage the other jobs. [5] “At present,” says Heidrick & Struggles partner Ryan Bulkoski, who is heading up the practice, “there is a critical shortage of leaders with the ability to apply a deep understanding of AI to practical outcomes, transforming businesses.” [5] It?s considered the R&D leader in AI. It?s led the way in trying to apply AI to truly ambitious problems, notably building self-driving cars. [24] The company is now one of the leaders in AI, and has just teamed up withl Amazon to offer developers new tools to develop and share open source AI software. [22] The bottom line is that AI is here; it?s not going away, and leaders need to be ready. [5]

Business leaders are accountable to redefine work, workplace, and workforce while creating a new “team concept” where AI and robots work with people to boost efficiencies and leverage operational excellence. [21] New leaders today need to think about: How do you create environments where people look forward to the work that they get to do, to the thinking that they get to do, and to the challenges? The environment that you create is important. [20] Having leaders who help make it very clear how good your work needs to be is an important part of what leads to fantastic outcomes. [20]

Maybe we need to improve the coaching we provide our leaders to enhance their interpersonal skills, or maybe finding innovative approaches to soft skills training will be the key. [5] In the AI age, an effective leader understands that someone having lower status or less experience doesn?t mean they cannot make a key contribution. [23] I want people to understand how as a leader today, you should be thinking about it. [20] Team leaders are also responsible to make people safe and engage employees to align the organization to this transformational venture. [21] We as leaders have a responsibility to start redesigning what we ask people to do when they come to work. [20] Several hundred people, all leaders in their companies, will be in your audience. [20] It’s incumbent on smart people and thoughtful leaders to make decisions on what’s important and what’s not. [20] Within a decade, all technologies–from everyday business to genomic editing–will in some way touch A.I. Today, China is poised to become its undisputed global leader, and that will affect every business. [43] Agile leaders need to stay engaged, but they also need to find ways to keep their teams engaged, particularly when the going gets rough and the path becomes challenging. [23] To succeed in this new technological environment, leaders must avoid homogenous project teams, who will be responsible for the implementation technology solutions, to promote broader critical thinking perspective and reduce unconscious bias. [21] Leaders should create an environment that welcomes curiosity, innovation, and creativity that will allow teams to innovate, learn and succeed faster. [21] As a new leader, make sure you’re getting a wide and diverse perspective as you figure out the situation with the team you inherited or that you’re building. [20] While we shouldn’t expect–or want–the U.S. government to model China’s example and dictate A.I.’ s future, public and private sectors should coordinate on educating leaders about A.I. and writing policy that helps A.I. businesses thrive. [43] Adaptable leaders are not afraid to commit to a new course of action when the situation warrants, and their adaptability allows them to confront challenges with a focus on learning rather than being right. [23] Unfortunately, leaders are often shielded from learning about new developments by the sheer volume and variety of new information that is captured daily. [23] We conducted a survey to help leaders better understand how organizations are applying AI through deep learning and where they?re encountering the biggest obstacles. [19] There are several ways to provide the training needed for leaders to understand AI. Nunes says that “fast-paced, continuous corporate training is the best way for leaders and C-level professionals to acquire these skills.” [5] If you?re going with an external training provider, Haque recommends a bootcamp-style program for leaders who want to be able to use AI to “drive impact themselves.” [5]

Examples include Clarifai and Geometric Intelligence, which was acquired by Uber and now serves as its central AI lab. [4] At some point in our history, probably with the advent of language, leadership acumen transitioned from physical to cognitive skills, putting a premium on intelligence and expertise at the expense of force and strength. [23]

The very purpose of AI is to augment, improve, and ultimately replace human intelligence, which is still widely regarded at least by us humans as our key competitive advantage. [23]

One cannot deny the potent influence that environmental changes may have in reshaping the critical skills and behaviors that will make leaders effective (and ineffective). [23] Lastly, pausing while remaining engaged in change is a critical step that leaders can use to create space for clear judgment, original thinking, and speedy, purposeful action. [21] Leaders with a clear vision have compelling, meaningful answers to these questions and are better at communicating them in an effective way. [23] Leaders need to be open to the outcomes and using data as a feedback and insights to continually improve decision-making to deliver bottom line results. [21] Many leaders of today?s digital giants, such as Amazon, Tesla, Facebook, Tencent, Alibaba, and Google, have clearly articulated visions for their organizations, even in the face of huge short-term uncertainty. [23] Lastly, to be successful in the AI age, a leader must remain constantly engaged with their surrounding environment so that they can be attuned to, and adapt to, the signals rather than the noise — which will either threaten (disruptors) or support (potential partners) their vision. [23]

Business leaders don?t need the technical details of how to create algorithms or machine learning programs. [5] This is a phenomenal opportunity for aspiring business leaders to encourage teams to discover unexpected, breakthrough ideas. [21] They believe that several key competencies will be increasingly important for leaders in the fourth Industrial Revolution : humility, adaptability, vision and engagement (with their environment and their teams). [5] Bulkoski says these skills are especially important for leaders in technology, financial services, consumer retail, health care and pharma, industrial, and entertainment and media industries – though he notes that “every industry is being impacted.” [5] Ahmed Haque, chief academic officer of Trilogy Education, says the most important skill for leaders is how to use “intelligent algorithms” to solve problems that were previously unsolvable. [5]

He adds that developing a learning community through meetups, workshops and short courses will help leaders build skills and develop a lifelong learning approach. [5]

Good leaders help the people in their organizations develop as people and as professionals. [20]

A few weeks ago, we joined hundreds of other business and technology leaders at the AI Summit San Francisco. [26] As AI permeates the enterprise, everyone–from the CEO and business unit leaders to your middle managers and frontline employees–will need to be conversant in some basic terminology. [26] In a future post, we?ll look at the top tech trends that we expect will shape the AI market in the coming year and inform the techniques and tools your data scientists and AI leaders should deploy. [26] In essence, we built a C-suite cockpit that enabled leaders to assess more than 200,000 simulations for entering new markets. (In fact, this work was part of a broader portfolio of projects, including an autonomous fleet-optimization solution that won Best Application of AI in the Enterprise at the Summit?s AIConics Awards.) [26] Some of the questions we covered in the AI Summit keynote help leaders focus in this way: What parts of our business processes are high volume and low margin? What work frustrates our teams? What new markets do we want to enter? In our own Global AI Study we have identified some 300 high-potential use cases across eight industries and three time horizons–but these are only a starting point for each organization to consider and customize. [26]

China is not yet the overall leader in AI technology, but they are not far behind and catching up quickly. [28] From explaining what AI is to debating the ethics and implications surrounding the field, these pioneering leaders will explain where we are headed and how Colorado companies are leading the charge. [7] As the talk about AI promises a radical transformation of the organization, leaders are especially curious to know if it will make it easier for them. [44] Joshua Gans, co-author of Prediction Machines and Professor of Strategic Management at Rutman at the University of Toronto encourages business leaders to “understand these potential biases and be aware of them when making AI adoption decisions.” [6] Business leaders must begin addressing all facets of what we call Responsible AI. [26]

Until we can instill emotional intelligence in AI, the human will be the one to make judgment calls. [44] Mr Musk and others are worried about what might happen when a firm finally cracks “general intelligence”, the ability of a computer to perform any human task without being explicitly programmed to do so. [45] Sure, a machine can be left to make decisions on simpler tasks that don’t require emotional intelligence and experience — two factors that form the basis of judgment in business. [44]

Artificial general intelligence–machines that could perform the full range of intellectual tasks better than humans–are still far off. [29]

NVIDIA trains tens of thousands of developers and data scientists each year, partnering with educational leaders such as Coursera and Udacity. [46] Top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, have loudly trumpeted the strategy at nearly every opportunity. [28]

Their ability to make sound decisions without complex technology is the very foundation of their reputation as good leaders. [44]

When developing an AI strategy leaders have to develop the business case, manage the capability, and fund it. [10] Maximizing the Impact of AI – investing in applications to solve real-world problems and engaging with government, business, and society?s thought leaders to prepare and enable this transformation. [10] As AI becomes more enmeshed in health care, it prompts questions around inclusivity and diversity, topics that are otherwise currently top of mind for health care leaders. [9] Leaders from Russian president Vladimir Putin to Tesla founder Elon Musk have said whoever wins the AI race will “rule the world”. [32] This book cuts the fluff and arms business leaders with exactly the right foundational knowledge to lead successful AI initiatives at their companies. [11] I run a discussion forum and social group on Facebook for business leaders and readers of my book Applied AI to connect with each other and learn together. [11]

At some point in the future, they might be successfully brought together to create true human like intelligence, but for now we apply different types of AI depending on what we want the machine to do. [34] Most AI experts believe a breakthrough in super intelligence is decades away at best, if at all, in our lifetimes. [32]

Today, what we do have are developments that provide machines with intelligence in different ways for different purposes e.g. voice recognition, Natural Language Processing (NLP), computer vision and more. [34] Under the hood of machine intelligence, you could find a neural network. [34]

Putting aside the question of why such a superior intellect could not escape from human-imposed confines in the first place, such a strategy would limit its capabilities against an equivalent super intelligence from other nations. [32] This follows a predictable pattern moving from a tool, to adding over the product life, a transmission, energy source, control and finally intelligence. [10] Experience the intelligence built into Microsoft products and services you use every day. [47]

True AI, as set out by the Turing Test, is indistinguishable from human intelligence and that is still the stuff of science fiction. [34]

Challenges include business leaders not yet knowing the potential of Automation and how it might impact their organisations and business model. [33]
