AI is not a mythical unicorn.
It’s the next level of productivity tool.
Artificial intelligence has left the laboratory (and the movie lot) and is in your building. It’s in your home. It’s in your office. From Alexa to Nest to Siri to Uber to Waze, we are surrounded by smart machines running on incredibly powerful and self-learning software platforms.
Minute by minute, machines are doing more and more of the work we perform today.
The rise of artificial intelligence is the great story of our time. Those who succeed in the next phase of the digital economy are not those who can create the new machines, but those who figure out what to do with them.
When machines do everything, what are you going to do?
“What to Do When Machines Do Everything could not be more timely. The authors lay out clear, useful, realistic frameworks for how companies, governments, and individuals can engage with, and prosper from, the new systems of intelligence. In a time of disruptive innovation, this is precisely what we all need.”
– Geoffrey Moore, Author, Crossing the Chasm and Zone to Win
– John Thornhill, The Financial Times
“What to Do When Machines Do Everything accurately addresses the elephant in the room: Artificial intelligence makes certain jobs obsolete. But the authors take an optimistic and pragmatic overview of where AI stands today, how it will impact both individuals and organizations, and more importantly, where we go from here. It uses relatable, real-life examples that show how to leverage new technologies to stay competitive, both traditionally and with new entrants. It’s a must-read for those just entering this new world of robots and machine intelligence.”
– Flavio Villanustre, VP of Infrastructure & Security at HPCC Systems, LexisNexis
“A timely analysis of the strategic implications of the rapid advancements in AI and machine learning (ML) on businesses of all sizes. The book is well-researched with terrific case study examples of companies that are confronting the realities of today's rapidly changing AI/ML environment, and the consequences facing those that aren't. The book also provides useful advice for executives to respond to the AI/ML opportunities and challenges.”
– Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Founder and Managing Director, THINKStrategies
“Instead of being threatened by this new world I found their practical and helpful advice quite optimistic.”
– Nick Bamford, Executive Director, Informed Choice
"It is excellent and I am aligned with their main theme - in order for AI/technology to move from end of the world risk to untapped opportunity - organizations and individuals must take bold action NOW."
– Jeffrey Thompson, President & CEO, IMA (Institute of Management Accountants)
“An essential guidebook for business executives aiming to understand the incredible Impact AI is having - and will continue to have - on business processes and customer engagement strategies. While much of the prior AI literature can ascribed to ‘the sky is falling’ category, What To do When Machines Do Everything dynamically breaks that mold by offering balanced, insightful and pragmatic advice on how to do AI right.”
– Gary Beach, Publisher Emeritus, CIO Magazine
“What To Do When Machines Do Everything helps leaders think beyond their own organizational boundaries and embrace the future of artificial intelligence. The book’s practical advice not only explains how to apply machine-driven solutions at all levels of an organization, it also reveals the skills your employees need to ensure your business stays competitive in this coming age.”
– Theo Priestley, Global Evangelist, SAP
“I really enjoyed the way you are able to tell the positive side of this story....a positive message around the work we are looking to take on.”
