Chuck Brooks: Examining the Future

I'm the operator With my pocket calculator

I am adding And subtracting

I'm controlling And composing

By pressing down a special key It plays…

How about this for a picture of the present with a look to the future…

What if I told you that chatbots will power 85 percent of customer service by 2020… McKinsey Global Institute did a study that found 20% of C-level executives claim to be using Machine Learning and/or Artificial Intelligence as a core part of their business. Our friends at IDC proclaimed that global spending on cognitive and AI systems is expected to reach $57.6 billion in 2021.

And finally… as if we aren’t already tired of hearing about the IT skills gap… Forbes recently announced that the number of jobs requiring AI skills has grown 450% since 2013…

Are we ready for the future?

Hell… are we even ready for the present!?!?!
