Artificial intelligence (AI) enables the development of systems that mimic human thoughts and actions. With applicability across nearly every industry, executives around the world are incorporating AI into their business models to increase revenues and drive efficiency in their organizations.
For these systems to work effectively, they need to be trained through a process called machine learning, which relies on quality data sets to produce optimal results.
The AI market is poised for massive growth in the coming years. One recent forecast shows that spending on AI systems will reach $97.9 billion in 2023.
