New Research on AI and Automation

Events /Feel the Need — the Need for AI Speed!

Thursday, December 3 | 11:00 a.m. CST – 12:00 p.m. CST


How should companies approach AI? “It’s time to head into overdrive,” reveals our new research, because there is no going back to the old pace of innovation.

In fact, 44% of our survey respondents believe the bottom line will suffer if they don’t adopt AI.

Our research also shows the danger zone is real with old and new challenges along the way, including cybersecurity, regulations, new customer demands and ethics. More importantly, AI presents one of the greatest leadership challenges of our times, and the true transformation will need to start from the top.
