Memes aren't the typical source for wisdom surrounding artificial intelligence, but one of the Internet's new favorite memes gives us an effective AI-101. In the meme, people force a bot to watch thousands of hours of a TV show, only to have it spit out a script of nothing but stereotypical phrases stitched together. Artificial intelligence -- the perpetually discussed technology has been promised to solve just about every problem facing modern man, from eliminating traffic on the roads, to curing diseases. In many cases, it delivers on these amazing feats, but that doesn't mean AI is reserved solely for these types of cases. Its glossy exterior and impressive power often make it seem like it's reserved for titans of industry or mega-corporations with endless resources to throw into its development, when in fact, it has much more to offer to mid-market companies.


How Artificial Intelligence Can Level The Playing Field For Mid-Market Companies

As a young child, I used to imagine what life would be like if I had a chauffeur to drive me wherever and whenever I wanted. Of course, this was a luxury afforded by only the wealthy and remained well out of reach for most people -- myself included. Fast forward to today, and the rise of the ride-sharing economy has essentially leveled the playing field, giving everyone affordable access to on-demand transportation. Access to artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to undergo a similar shift. Traditionally, large corporations and government entities have been ahead of the adoption curve because they've had the capital to invest in and the talent to leverage the technology.

Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming nearly every task, position, and organization in the marketplace, and mid-market private companies recognize that existing workers must be prepared for the shift, according to a Tuesday report from Deloitte. The report surveyed 500 executives in the mid-market and private segments, and found that certain positions and industries are more likely to be disrupted by technologies than others. This doesn't mean that professionals in those areas are out of a job, however. Some 61 percent of mid-market executives said they are reskilling employees, and 57 percent said they are redesigning jobs to better integrate people and machines in the workplace, the report found. Company leaders expect that these strategies and the combination of man and machine will lead to more positive outcomes for workers and leadership: 58 percent of executives said they anticipate a boost in worker productivity, and 55 percent said they expect a reduction in operational costs.
