What you'll learn

  • Learn a framework for thinking about machine intelligence adoption in industry you can use in your own work
  • Description

    Society is standing at the gates of what promises to be a profound transformation in the nature of work, the role of data, and the future of the world’s major industries. Intelligent machines will play a variety of roles in every sector of the economy, from the energy supply chain to legal services and manufacturing.

    The common trends underlying these developments belie a far more complicated story of adoption, as each industry absorbs AI in its own way. Each industry’s idiosyncrasies suggest a unique forecast for its movement along the adoption curve.

    David Beyer introduces a general framework for modeling the adoption of AI-related technologies. This model then serves to focus a discussion around the adoption of intelligent applications in the context of the law, agriculture, and manufacturing.
