About this Market
While AI remains an emotive topic and raises awkward questions about how close engineers will get to replicating human-level intelligence, such questions are irrelevant for the purposes of this report.

The surprisingly broad range of applications included in this report, clearly demonstrates that AI is already being used by many companies - but more than that: practically every industry is involved and all parts of the value chain are involved too.

This report explains in very clear terms exactly where and how AI is being used and will serve as a valuable ‘cook-book’ which you can use to identify how you might apply AI in your own business today.
