We discuss AI in the modern enterprise and why robots stealing jobs may not be a problem quite yet. We look at what enterprises should be thinking about in order to grow their AI practices in the future. The truth is, AI engines rely on an enterprise already having a strong data practice under control. It relies on big data capabilities, a culture that can accept it, and data infrastructures to be in place. Most companies are not there yet. This is a case where the market hype gets ahead of itself which is why AI is still a few years down the road for most enterprises.
We also discuss the open-source versus cloud debate with regard to Kubernetes, containers, and more. It’s hard to say what the industry will look like in the next ten years, but clearly a whole new ecosystem of technology is emerging.
