Publisher’s Corner

Hi I am Byron Reese, welcome to Gigaom.

As publisher of Gigaom, I am excited to be part of the Gigaom mission to provide enterprises with information and analysis to help them make better decisions about technology. Given this mission, you can understand why we are so excited about AI. It exists to help us make better decisions and we believe that the rapid adoption of AI by enterprises is essential to success. Here at Publisher’s Corner, you will find a curated collection of my bylined articles on artificial intelligence and a good number of interviews with today’s AI thought leaders.

You might have noticed a new focus in our content on AI, machine learning, and cognitive computing. Why? Because as transformative as this artificial intelligence has been so far, we have only seen a warm-up act for what is about to happen. With this in mind, I invite you to return here often for my latest articles and interviews exploring the impact of AI on business, employment, education, law, health, humanity and of course the future. I invite you to come along.

I explore issues around artificial intelligence and conscious computers in my book The Fourth Age, published by Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Order a copy here.

Introducing Gigaom Labs

Technologies like AI are double-edged swords: On the one hand, adopting them will lead to vast increases in efficiency and profitability. On the other hand, it gives those same benefits to all of your competitors as well. With technologies as transformative as AI, it is a race to see who can implement them the best and fastest.

What is certain is this: AI will transform everything–every business, every department, every job, everything. AI is as profound in its implications as electricity, and just as one cannot imagine a business taking a “wait and see” attitude about electricity, companies that don’t rethink every department on their org chart in light of this new technology are at risk at being displaced by their more agile competitors.

In response, we have also created and launched Gigaom AI Labs to help organizations implement AI immediately, in ways that will deliver measurable results today. From strategy to coding, to rollout, we are with our clients every step of the way. If you have a project in mind that could be enhanced with artificial intelligence, perhaps we can work together on it. Drop us an email at [email protected] with the basics and let’s start a conversation.
