Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming the way we live and work, and the pace of that change is accelerating across every aspect of the business landscape, from operations to the customer experience. As its capabilities expand, investment in AI continues to grow, reaching $67.9 billion in 2020 – a 40% increase from the year prior – according to the Stanford AI Index Report 2021.
Organizations that want to stay ahead know they face fierce competition for talent with in-demand skills like data scientists, data engineers, cloud engineers, and solutions architects. But too many have a blind spot to the need to develop AI acumen outside the technical space. And it’s the companies that do both that will ultimately win in the marketplace.
