Publisher's Summary

AI is radically transforming business. Are you ready? 
Look around you. Artificial intelligence is no longer just a futuristic notion. It's here right now - in software that senses what we need, supply chains that "think" in real time, and robots that respond to changes in their environment. Twenty-first-century pioneer companies are already using AI to innovate and grow fast. The bottom line is this: Businesses that understand how to harness AI can surge ahead. Those that neglect it will fall behind. Which side are you on? 
In Human + Machine, Accenture leaders Paul R. Daugherty and H. James (Jim) Wilson show that the essence of the AI paradigm shift is the transformation of all business processes within an organization - whether related to breakthrough innovation, everyday customer service, or personal productivity habits. As humans and smart machines collaborate ever more closely, work processes become more fluid and adaptive, enabling companies to change them on the fly - or to completely reimagine them. AI is changing all the rules of how companies operate. 
Based on the authors' experience and research with 1,500 organizations, the book reveals how companies are using the new rules of AI to leap ahead on innovation and profitability as well as what you can do to achieve similar results. It describes six entirely new types of hybrid human + machine roles that every company must develop, and it includes a "leader's guide" with the five crucial principles required to become an AI-fueled business. 
Human + Machine provides the missing and much-needed management playbook for success in our new age of AI. 
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good intro. Little substance.

This book is a good intro for a non technical person, to understand general AI concepts, and how they may impact business. As for substance and concrete, actionable information - there is very little.

Like a very long movie traiker

No offence to the author or the voice - he is just a victim of movie trailer style. The fault lies on the producer who chose such an inapropriate type of performance that didn’t really allow to listen to that very tiny amount of new and insightful content that this books had. It’s pretty kuch enough to listen to the summary in the last chapter
