“AI is a major trend, and business leaders need to know what it is and how they can use it to grow their business. This is the first event of its kind dedicated to AI for sales and marketing, and I’m thrilled to see so many leaders and industry experts tell their stories on how artificial intelligence has helped them grow their business,” said Dave Elkington, CEO of InsideSales.com. “For many, seeing actual implementation strategies and real results, rather than just hype, will help increase adoption of and confidence in AI capabilities.”
The AI Growth Summit is a virtual event hosted by the No. 1 artificial intelligence (AI) growth platform for sales, InsideSales.com. During the summit, the company will also publish its latest research report, “The State of AI for Sales and Marketing.” The survey of hundreds of leaders will attempt to shed light on the attitudes and opinions regarding artificial intelligence, and its place in business.
The last “State of AI” study from InsideSales.com, published in 2017, showed that over half of consumers are used to working with AI-powered applications in their home. However, less than 36 percent of consumers have used AI in the work space, showing that the technology has been slow to penetrate the business environment, mainly due to a lack of trust. The study showed there is still a lot of room for growth in the AI industry going into 2018, and companies working to increase adoption stand to gain significantly from the technology.
