AI Going Mainstream Faster Than You Think
TAKE NOTE (Insights into Emerging Technology)
Yes, implementation cost and complexity may hamper adoption in non-tech companies. But that hasn’t stopped many organizations from either thinking about AI or experimenting with it. All you have to do is look around to realize that digital leaders—across a variety of industries—are moving beyond experimentation to integrate AI into their business operations.
Meanwhile, some of the biggest brands on the planet are placing huge bets on artificial intelligence, betting on everything from face-scanning smartphones and consumer gadgets to computerized health care and self-driving cars.
- General Electric has leveraged AI, machine learning and Big Data, to transform itself into a “digital powerhouse,” with $7 billion in software sales in 2016, and expectations to double digital revenue to $15 billion by 2020.
- German automaker Audi has introduced a smart sedan that uses AI to drive itself autonomously— while in traffic jams.
- In medicine, researchers at McGill University unveiled a computer-driven algorithm that can predict Alzheimer’s progression with an accuracy of over 80%, proving that AI can detect disease patterns in brain scans long before humans.
Digital businesses are already pairing AI and big data to learn customer browsing patterns, purchase history, and preferences. Then offer personalized recommendations as customers browse online, or chat with merchants via messaging apps.
“It takes time to build the infrastructure to support emerging technologies like AI,” says Rita McGrath, a globally recognized expert on innovation and growth strategies.

SAP Screen Personas : Scripting for Automation
Our first step will be to add a Script Button to our tool. The Script Button can be found on the Insert Tab near the Transactional Button we used extensively in past blogs.:
Next, we will create a script to perform the actions of retrieving the data we wish to populate. To do this, we will have to exit the Flavor Editor and return the to main Persona Management screen, then click the Scripting button located in the bottom right corner.
