As the next wave of business growth hits the industry, enterprises look to adopt Artificial Intelligence into their operations. And to ease their journey, AI providers offer off-the-shelf solutions that can be implemented almost immediately. While AI is increasingly being consumed in an outcome-based as-a-service model, the true potential and associated challenges are yet to be completely understood. To answer such and more questions, The HOLMES Advisory Board met in December 2019 with participation from leading AIaaS providers, CXOs from across verticals, and niche startups. There is a consensus across AI service providers, AI product companies, OEMs and customers that there is need to bring about a cultural change in organizations to improve trust in machine led processing. And the solution might lie in offering AI as a Service by combining data, algorithms, and strong compute.
