You’ve heard it from McKinsey, MIT, our own coverage, and elsewhere: Artificial Intelligence is a must-have capability for your business. These reports don’t provide much data yet on the areas or functions within your company that will benefit first from AI, or should.

That’s why VB has developed this quick survey to help execs better understand how to get started and where to focus their budget and energy to get business value out of AI. If you take the survey, we’d like to reward you by providing you access to the full results — which won’t otherwise be shared publicly.

This comes in the run-up to our AI-themed VB Summit on October 22 & 23 in Mill Valley, CA, a unique executive event aimed at which companies are getting real results from AI, and how they did it. We’ll be dissecting the “do’s and don’ts” around things like architecture and personnel decisions. Limited to 180 execs — VP level and above — the event brings together AI leaders from companies like Facebook, AirBnb, Uber, AirBus, Ancestry, Macy’s, JP Morgan Chase, Prudential, Experian, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Amazon, and many more.

If you’re an executive, we have a few spots left.

Even if you can’t make it, we suggest that you take our survey to assess where you are with artificial intelligence.

MIT Sloan found that optimism for AI was very high: 90 percent of the 3,000 executives they interviewed thought that AI would create new value within five years. And close to 30 percent said AI has already led to business model change at their organization.

Some 85 percent said they have urgent need for an AI strategy.

So, if you don’t where to start or how to formulate your strategy, you’re in very good company. Want to find out your company status? Find out how you compare with your peers?  Answer the AI Survey now and you’ll get access to the full results when it’s complete!
