Dear Humans, We Mean You No Harm. Love, AI  

The business world is changing more - and more rapidly - than at any time in history. Over the coming decade, Artificial Intelligence and a handful of technologies will have a greater impact on the global economy than any force since electricity. Forrester Research is among those projecting that by the end of 2020, “businesses adopting AI and Big Data will take $1.2 trillion annually from their less-informed peers."

This will be the greatest economic shift in history - and it is all flowing from mid-sized and small companies to the Tech Titans and fortunate few in the Fortune 500 who have increasingly come to corner their markets. 

Compounding the impact AI is having is the fact that while technology evolves exponentially, the human mind has remained largely unchanged for at least the last 130,000 years. It's little wonder why then that 84% of all tech initiatives end in frustration and failure.  

So how can David compete with Goliath?

Join us to better understand how the co-consideration of Technology & Psychology separates those companies that thrive from those that cannot survive - and come away knowing what you can do to ensure your organization (and you!) will be among the few to reap the future's rewards.
