30-second summary:

  • Knowledge gap stands as the biggest challenge for AI technology adoption and implementation
  • Our AI Summit 2020 is a cost-free event that aims to equip marketers with the much needed knowledge to adopt AI, realize AI’s true power, and know how to create strategies that can create huge competitive advantages.

  • More details on why marketers can’t afford to miss this golden opportunity

Artificial intelligence (AI) has long been looked at as an “industry game-changer” but has merely become jargon than actual hands-on technology.

While it continues to grow rapidly – the AI market is expected to grow from $28.42 billion in 2019 to $40.74 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 43.39% — we observed that the knowledge gap stands as one of the biggest challenges for AI technology adoption and implementation, and our AI Summit 2020 aims to help businesses address exactly that continuum.

For a better idea, these quick facts perfectly display the AI-related challenges faced:

  • According to Gartner, only one in 25 CIOs reported applying AI in their business verticals
  • Retailers that implemented machine learning for personalization gained 2X as compared to retailers who did not
  • According to a McKinsey, only 8% of respondents across industries said their AI-relevant data are accessible by systems across the organization
  • Only 3% of an organization’s data meet the quality standards needed for analytics
