A key question I’ve had for some time is: how well are enterprise AI applications living up to expectations? Initial results from our ongoing survey covering the adoption and application of AI technology (based on initial responses from 105 participating organizations) provides some insight into this question.
The ever-increasing demand for cloud computing services deployed across multiple cloud data centers (CDCs) necessitates a significant amount of power, resulting in high carbon emissions and a negative effect on the environment. In sustainable cloud computing, renewable energy resources power the cloud data centers, replacing the conventional fossil fuel–based grid electricity or brown energy to effectively reduce carbon emissions.
Our latest research indicates that organizations overwhelmingly view customer engagement/customer experience management as the most viable use case for applying AI. This finding comes from an ongoing Cutter Consortium survey covering the adoption and application of AI and machine learning technology, based on the initial responses from 105 participating organizations.
In this Advisor, we highlight a few AI applications that Indian banks have implemented to enhance customer experience.
2018 is a defining year for the commercial adoption of blockchain. Initiatives in various industries have reached a maturity threshold, marked by a transition of focus from experimental proof of concept projects toward production use.
Blockchain protocols have the potential to facilitate a fundamental shift in the Internet business model from its current status, where the user is the product, to a future model, where the user is the customer and the user’s data always remains in the user’s control.
