The notion of Artificial Intelligence has pervaded both the info and tech worlds. Indeed, it's difficult to have a discussion or a webinar without the topics of AI and Robotic Process Automation coming up. And while it might be tempting to dismiss the implications as something from a Hollywood movie of a future world populated by smart robots with super-human characteristics, the truth is that these technologies are already at work today, fueling important changes in the way we do business.
That is the subject of our new AIIM On Air interview with futurist and author Tom Koulopoulos. It is perhaps our best interview yet, covering the topic of AI and its applications to information management and process improvement. And that's not to mention the implications of cloud computing along with what Tom calls "abundance thinking," that he believes will transform the way we do business.
It's no surprise that this is an intriguing and important interview. Tom has been writing and speaking on the social, organizational, and human impact of technology for years, and we have followed his work as a futurist and chairman of the Delphi Group, a Boston-based Think Tank that is focused on the business, social, and economic implications of the digital future.
Want to find out why Nike isn't really a shoe company... it's an information company? Listen here as we discuss his book The Bottomless Cloud, where Tom and his co-author David Friend compare today's digital information revolution -- and specifically the advent of the cloud -- to the industrial revolution and the advent of electric power. Tom says the growing abundance of data in the cloud will fuel a similar revolution in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
