Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Infographic
Responses to a 2016 Tech Pro Research survey indicate that artificial intelligence and machine learning will be a significant area of development for IT in the next few years.
In this recent survey, only 28 percent of respondents, most of whom were in IT leadership positions, said they have firsthand experience with artificial intelligence or machine learning. However, if the survey results hold true, the majority of respondents will be using the technologies at work in the next few years.
Forty-two percent of respondents, most of whom were in tech leadership positions, said their company lacks the skills necessary to implement and support artificial intelligence or machine learning. Almost as many respondents (41 percent) said all the implementation and support work would be done in house when the time comes, and that their company is working to address artificial intelligence and machine learning in the corporate security plan. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said their companies were also still working on selecting AI and machine learning vendors.
Among companies currently using, or planning to use AI or machine learning, the top uses were research and consumer analysis. Further down the list, those currently using AI or machine learning were more interested in uses like fraud detection and market analysis, while those still in the planning stages were interested in security monitoring and office automation.For more data and analysis on corporate preparedness and uses for AI and machine learning, plus information on vendor selection, download the full report:
