No matter how far along an organization’s artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives may be, there is still a pressing need for greater training and expertise to add value to the business. In a recent global survey of 5,000 executives, IBM finds skills deficiencies to be the number-one pressing challenge to moving forward with AI. IBM has been investing heavily in efforts to develop a skilled workforce ready to help employers embrace opportunities in AI, says Beth Smith, general manager of Watson Core. “In general, 94% of companies actually see that AI can bring them competitive advantage,” she points out. “But the interesting thing to me is only one in 20 have extensively incorporated AI into their businesses.” Along with skills shortages, the survey identified trust, compliance and data quality as barriers to AI success, says Smith.
