I closely follow CES 2018 novelties and innovations; hence, I cannot fail to mention how significantly changed is the focus of tomorrow’s technology. If previously, the consumer devices was a major dominance in CES; this year, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) has mostly moved from an experimental state and started towards becoming a one-of-a-kind technology, which will boost us all in the coming years. This, however, is not much limited to self-driving cars or Siri-style assistance devices or AR/VR techs.
If projecting this onto the Procurement industry field, I see the vast potential for real-life benefits for all sides of the function. Generally speaking, A.I. needs only one type of fuel – DATA. And procurement has it in abundance everywhere around.
