The AI Gap: Time For The Middle East To Take It Seriously
The world has reached a turning point where the disruptive force of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can no longer be ignored. Organizations in the Middle East will either adapt their operations to leverage AI, or risk being disrupted by those who do. A recent global executive survey conducted in collaboration with MIT Sloan highlights that 78% of Middle East executives see their organizations having only limited adoption of AI today compared to 54% globally. In addition, only 55% of Middle East executives indicate they clearly understand the skills and knowledge needed for adopting and succeeding with AI. To leverage the full potential of AI, the report recommends organizations to make the most of today’s AI opportunities, and explore how to develop a winning position in tomorrow’s market leveraging future AI developments.
