AI has quickly become a popular application for many business sectors because of its focus on making intelligent machines that are capable of solving some problems as well as (or better than) people can. More and more companies have developed AI applications, lowering costs and making AI accessible to a much wider range of businesses. Gartner reports AI adoption has tripled in the last year alone, with an estimated 37 percent of firms now implementing AI in some form.
AI also fuels other popular technologies, like automation and chatbots, which help professionals across many disciplines complete processes more efficiently and accurately. AI-equipped tools are optimizing internal business operations and allowing employees to hone their creative skills and make data-driven decisions.
For example, Oracle’s AI-fueled autonomous database offers many benefits for cybersecurity professionals, like auto-patching, and Walmart recently rolled out an entire AI-powered store of the future to efficiently monitor inventory.
