Artificial Intelligence - Transformational opportunities

November 2018

AI is a powerful paradigm that is reshaping industries and organizations across the globe and the promise is compelling.

The ability to automate higher-order work functions using digital rather than human labour has become a global disruptive force. It is estimated that the adaptation of currently demonstrated automation technologies could affect 50 percent of the world economy, or 1.2 billion employees and $14.6 trillion in wages. Currently North America and Asia Pacific seem meaningfully ahead of Europe in terms of adopting AI systems.

Chinese companies have been filing significantly more AI-related patents compared to their US counterparts, highlighting how serious the country is about succeeding in AI. We see sectors such as Travel, Automotive, Tech and Oil & Gas stand out as the main beneficiaries in terms of their relative size and expected benefit. 

Instead, regarding corporate functions expected benefits will primarily be reaped in marketing and sales as well as supply-chain management and manufacturing
