AI a game changer for businesses
Artificial intelligence (AI) will be one of the most disruptive emerging technology, according to the latest report from GlobalData.
In response to a poll by the company, 65% of respondents stated that AI would disrupt their industries, ahead of cybersecurity (57%), and IoT and cloud computing (both on 55%).
The new report by GlobalData, ‘Emerging Technology Sentiment Analysis Q1 2021’, the survey examined sentiment towards seven key technologies: cybersecurity, cloud computing, augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), and blockchain.
The report also noted that AI was the most polarising technology, with more than a fifth of respondents saying that they felt more negative towards the technology in Q1 2021 than this time last year.
Filipe Oliveira, Senior Analyst at GlobalData, said, “Processing power is increasing and becoming democratised, making complex AI workloads available to a growing number of companies. As more businesses are exposed to the technology, some will find that it does not live up to expectations.”
