First up, the adoption of artificial intelligence by businesses rose last year. According to consulting giant McKinsey’s state of AI report released in December, 57% of companies said they were using AI in at least one business function, up 45% in 2020. Over the past year, some of the most popular corporate uses of AI included automating calls for customer contact centers, improving marketing operations, and upgrading existing products with machine learning.

While the use cases are evident across the industry, a level of confusion and uncertainty about the role of AI and ML in the enterprise and how to best develop, test and deploy is still prevalent.

To clear the confusion around key foundation elements and predict the future of AI and ML in 2022, we have come up with an exciting fireside chat with industry leaders.
