AI – and machine learning in partcular – are set to have transformative effects on the way we work, learn and interact with others. In fact, in a recent 451 Research survey of enterprise tech decision makers, 97% of respondents believe AI will have between a slight and significant impact on society in the next two years, with 71% believing it to have a significant or moderate impact. But where will the impact be felt? Will the overall impact be positive? In this webinar, Research Vice President Nick Patience of 451 Research will discuss the use cases, business benefits and barriers to adoption being felt by enterprises around the world, based on his most recent survey.
