Running under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President & Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and hosted by the UAE’s National Program for Artificial Intelligence, 'Ai Everything 2019' promises to be the year’s most empowering AI summit for governments, businesses, social enterprises, and the creative economy. The UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence envisions the country becoming a world leader in AI by 2031, and this event represents a culmination of efforts to promote global initiatives, collaborations, partnerships, and breakthroughs in the field of AI.
As developments in this field continue to gather pace, IDC predicts that by 2022, 75% of IT operations will have been supplanted by AI or analytics-driven automation, resulting in operational expenditure (OPEX) savings of over 25%. And by 2024, IDC expects AI-enabled human-computer interfaces and business process automation to have replaced a third of today's screen-based business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) applications.
"Investments in AI are being driven by the promise, opportunity, and excitement of a new wave of automation that not only drives inefficiency out of processes but also augments human intelligence and capability," says Ranjit Rajan, IDC's associate vice president of research for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa. "However, investment in AI will be moderated by a shortage of algorithm training data, outdated legal frameworks, shortage of analytics staff, behavioral biases, and insufficient attention to analytic orientation and data literacy."
Rajan will expand on these challenges at 'Ai Everything 2019' as he participates in an exclusive panel discussion exploring the theme of 'Man, Machines, and Municipality' at 3.15pm on April 30. Visit IDC at Stand No. AIE031 to receive your complimentary copy of 'IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Analytics and Artificial Intelligence 2019 Predictions', a dedicated thought-leadership report that examines how AI is changing the way people live, work, and play.
