New survey from IP Expo Europe shows mixed AI signals from UK IT decision makers

New research commissioned by IP Expo Europe shows that although 37 per cent of respondents think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be a main technology theme for enterprises in 2017, there are mixed signals in terms of business application, investment levels and impact on society from UK IT decision makers (ITDMs).

The results reveal that a significant 32 per cent of respondents claim they are concerned about AI replacing human jobs overall, with 19 per cent admitting that they are more worried about their own job being overtaken by a robot than they were 12 months ago. In addition, there is a clear perceived risk factor, with almost a third worried about the unknown impacts of increased AI. Twenty-two per cent of respondents also voiced concerns about AI providing another route for cyber security attacks. Interestingly, one in 10 UK ITDMs thought that no form of artificial intelligence was of value to business.

However, the results also indicate that any hesitancy in uptake perhaps comes from a lack of immediately recognised business/organisational applications and perceived cost. In fact, 21 per cent noted that although they didn’t think AI was applicable to their business right now, it could be one day. Another 18 per cent saw the advantages of increased AI automation and machine learning technologies but claimed such initiatives were ‘too expensive’ to implement immediately.
