IDC PeerScape: Best Practices for Launching Artificial Intelligence Initiatives
By: Mitch Betts
This IDC PeerScape explores how several early adopters of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies got started on their journeys, in a field full of hype, risk, and (potentially) great business value. These pioneers developed a set of guidelines for how to pick the first applications for AI, how to balance in-house and external resources, and how to make sure they have the right quantity and quality of data to feed AI systems.
The C-level executives highlighted in this document answer the questions: How do we get started with AI? And what's the role for chief information officers?
"To launch their first AI projects, CIOs must become educators, evangelists, and coordinators of cross-functional teams," says Mitch Betts, an adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs.
