Why learn AI Strategy

With 31% of enterprises expected to add AI into their strategy over the next 12 months (Adobe), it’s never been more important to upskill.Today’s neural networks and machine learning algorithms are more likely to drive an autonomous car, analyse property markets, power a chatbot or help with clinical diagnoses and suggest treatments. In fact, the real challenge facing AI isn’t potential applications, it’s getting companies to recognise them.
