Accenture and the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce released new data on May 15th, 2019 to show the readiness of Bay Area-based businesses to develop, grow and adapt as Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Intelligence and Automation become prevalent in the modern workplace. Surveying 250 business leaders from organizations that are large, medium and small – and across multiple industries – the results suggest that businesses expect significant changes in the near future as their companies adopt and integrate new technology solutions. The challenge, however, is how to scale the use of these new capabilities and to hire and develop the right talent in an environment where unemployment is at an all-time low and the hiring market is extremely competitive.
