Artificial intelligence has been in the news a lot lately. Most recently, an AI named Pluribus outplayed the world’s best Texas Hold’Em players. Perhaps this causes you a bit of concern, given that an essential element of poker is the ability to pull off a convincing bluff. Should we be worried that a computer can lie well enough to clean out the best card players in the world? 

For most of us, AI hasn’t been at the forefront of our minds. Yes, we hear about recent technology advances in the news or somehow find ourselves at the one happy-hour table talking about how robots will replace us. Beyond that we probably haven’t thought too much about AI, resigning it as a topic for the distant future. 

In reality, the world has changed under our feet. The future is here: AI is everywhere. It’s no longer a far off concept; AI is a commodity here and now. Companies like Amazon have started to offer AI tools that sort through unbelievable amounts of data and provide valuable insights that were previously unthinkable. AI is being used to identify sales leads, streamline supply chains, optimize logistics, instantly recognize fraud, and even create original content. 

This is an opportunity. Companies of all sizes are leveraging commoditized AI tools to stay a step ahead. If you don’t take advantage of this new commodity, your competitors will. 

Matt Jamison will be in Reno presenting on this topic at panel discussion on AI this month at the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology.
