Top 10 artificial intelligence stories of 2022

Over the past few years, IT strategies have become more data-centric. We look at how this has played out in 2022, with AI deployments

This has been the year that IT leaders emerged from the previous two years of Covid-19 restrictions with a renewed sense of purpose. IT helped organisations get through the lockdowns. With ongoing supply chain issues, the war in Ukraine, fuel price hikes and economic turmoil, business leaders are once again turning to IT for help.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation have been the tools of choice for IT leaders as they look to support technology-enabled efficiency gains and help their organisations plot a path through these difficult trading conditions.

Given AI’s potential to improve business efficiency and discover hidden trends, the debate about whether to deploy this powerful technology is now shifting. The industry is shifting towards ethics, accountability and auditing of AI models, and governments are looking at ways to regulate the use of AI.
