Poor, misunderstood artificial intelligence (AI). It’s alternately overhyped as a digital nirvana or vilified as a dystopian menace. Yet in the pragmatic here and now, it is neither.

The growing adoption of AI is reflected in metrics the IBM Institute for Business Value (IBV) has tracked biannually since 2016.
