That explains Gartner’s 2020 statistic that only 53% of AI pilot programs actually make it to deployment. The tools and experience needed are just not there for the average IT shop, especially a smaller enterprise. Nvidia is looking to change that with a pair of AI-related alliances with consulting giants Deloitte and Booz Allen Hamilton.

This year, the polls passed peacefully, and as such we exp… Read More “EDITORIAL: Give the private sector confidence in economy”
