A recent MIT/BCG study revealed that 84% surveyed feel AI is critical to obtain or sustain competitive advantage, and three out of four surveyed believe that Machine Learning provides an opportunity to enter new businesses and that AI will be the basis for new entrants into their industry. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, seeing as how advances in GPU/TPU technology, and the development of new platforms and frameworks have enabled an explosion in AI and Machine Learning, while new platforms from Amazon, Microsoft and others have put pre-built frameworks firmly in the grasp of developers. Despite all this movement, however, we are still definitely very early in the transition to using AI to transform software development — commonly referred to as Software 2.0, or AIOps.
