We’re currently experiencing an AI gold rush. Billions are being invested. AI startups abound. Google, Amazon, and Microsoft are duking it out for AI supremacy. Corporations are scrambling to ensure they adopt AI ahead of their competitors while looking over their shoulder at startups. And China is laying its strategy for AI global dominance. But as with any gold rush, the economic benefits will be captured by the brave, the few, and the large, and there will be economic casualties along the way.
Simon Greenman explores where the value is being created in AI and who is capturing that value. Simon shares a simple and nontechnical framework to explain the different players in the AI space, including startups, corporations, tech giants, and governments, weaving in real-world use cases and case studies of AI that show how value is being created across industries and functions. Simon also discusses how AI startups are disrupting industries and how corporations are well positioned to fight back.
