There’s a lot of hype, hand waving, and ink being spilled about artificial intelligence in business—and enterprises are taking the bait. According to a 2019 report by Gartner, AI implementation has grown by an astounding 270 percent in the past four years and has tripled in the last year alone. By 2021, IDC researchers predict that organizations will spend $52.2 billion annually on AI-related products. We’ve spent decades feeding AI vast amounts of data and propping it up with energy-hungry data centers. But despite its speed and smarts, AI lacks one critical element: common sense. AI simply can’t replicate the decision-making abilities of its flesh-and-blood counterparts. AI isn’t ready for prime time. But the Humachine is.
