When you get over the fear of a robot taking over your job – because if you see our robots today they are still pretty dumb – your next big concern is how these new workers are going to perform. It’s not just a training question, it&#…
There’s no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) and its underlying technology building blocks are top of mind for enterprises today. But who’s driving this change and its adoption within their organizations? On the surface, it may appear that AI is …
The promise of artificial intelligence (AI) has permeated across the enterprise giving hopes of amping up automation, enriching insights, streamlining processes, augmenting workers, and in many ways making our lives as consumers, employees, and custome…
Building AI applications is hard work, but cloud vendors are making it easy by exposing simple-to-call, pay-as-you-use APIs. Want to add real-time speech recognition to your app? There’s an API for that. Want to recognize faces in an image? There…
Your customers are very literally telling you what they want, what they think about your products and services, and what they think about their experiences with your company. They are doing this, often unwittingly, through conversations with your salespeople, your customer service reps, with each other online, and increasingly with virtual agents. Up until now, […]
This week, Google announced the acquisition of key HTC assets. This will give them some of the hardware technology expertise, the design skills and the experience in smartphone retail distribution they badly need. Due to Android’s massive fragmentation, Google needs to control the distribution of its services, to reduce its traffic acquisition costs and to […]
It is the best of times, and the worst of times to be a data scientist (apologies to Charles Dickens). It is the best of times, because, like never before, we have access to data, computing power, and rapidly evolving tools to create insights and applications with the potential to revolutionize business and the world […]
That is exactly what Forrester wants to find out – is there something behind the AI and Cognitive Computing hype? What my research directors ask, “Is there a there there?”
AI and Cognitive Computing have captured the imagination and interest of organization large and small but does anyone really know how to bring this new capability in and get value from it? Will AI and Cognitive really change businesses and consumer experiences? And the bigger question – WHEN will this happen?
It is time to roll-up the sleeves and look beyond conversations, vendor pitches and media coverage to really define what AI and Cognitive Computing mean for businesses, are businesses ready, where they will invest, and who they will turn to to build these innovated solutions, and what benefits will result. As such, Forrester launched its Global Artificial Intelligence Survey and is reaching out to you – executives, data scientists, data analysts, developers, architects and researchers – to put a finger on the pulse. We would appreciate you take a little time out of your day to tell us your point of view.

We hope to hear from you!
You can’t turn anywhere without bumping into artificial intelligence, machine learning, or cognitive computing jumping out at you. Our cars brake for us, park for us, and some are even driving us. Our movie lists are filled with Ex Machina, Her, and Lucy. The news tells about the latest vendor and cool use of technology, minute by minute. Vendors are filling our voicemail and email with enticements. It’s all so very cool!
But cool doesn’t build a business. Results do.
Which brings me to the biggest barrier companies have in adopting artificial intelligence. Companies are asking the wrong questions:
- What is artificial intelligence (or insert: machine learning or cognitive computing)?
- Where can I use artificial intelligence?
- What tool can I buy?
These questions put artificial intelligence into the traditional analytic processes and technology adoption box. These questions assume you will begin from the same starting point as you did for big data. You are wrong: Artificial intelligence starts with the problem to solve and works backward.
To succeed at artificial intelligence you need to ask the right questions:
