Research: Companies lack skills to implement and support AI and machine learning
Responses to a 2016 TechRepublic Premium survey indicate that AI and machine learning will be a significant area of development for IT in the next few years. Forty-two percent of respondents, most of whom were in tech leadership positions, said their company lacks the skills necessary to implement and support AI and machine learning. Almost as many respondents said all the implementation and support work would be done in house when the time comes, and that their company is working to address AI and machine learning in the corporate security plan.
Among companies currently using, or planning to use AI or machine learning, the top uses were research and consumer analysis. Further down the list, those currently using AI or machine learning were more interested in uses like fraud detection and market analysis, while those still in the planning stages were interested in security monitoring and office automation.
