High-tech forecasters Malcolm Frank, Paul Roehrig and Ben Pring explain that contemporary astute leaders are applying “narrow” artificial intelligent systems to turbocharge their firms’ processes. In this pragmatist’s guide to prodigious systems of intelligence – referred to as the “new machine” – the authors offer clear strategies for mining and refining data, today’s most valuable, enigmatic commodity. They see great promise in this Fourth Industrial Revolution. And, they say, companies that automate judiciously with an optimistic “instrument everything” attitude will take the lead. Their no-nonsense primer urges you – armed with an open mind, a sense of urgency and “your own lawn mower” – to step up to the challenge. getAbstract recommends the authors’ insights to investors, students, leaders, managers and anyone seeking a tactical and strategic overview to applying today’s AI to enhance profit.
