Adopting AI in the enterprise is a complex process that requires advanced infrastructure, specialized skills, and significant investment. However, the future of AI is so promising that we cannot afford to slow down. Intel is supporting this transition with an open ecosystem, offering open-source software tools and hardware solutions to optimize the performance of AI models. Continue reading to learn more about Intel Vision 2024.

Introduction

The enterprise landscape is at a pivotal moment in AI adoption, driven by Generative AI. By 2026, 80% of enterprises are expected to use GenAI (Source: Gartner), with 50% of edge computing involving machine learning (Source: Gartner). This will optimize operations and enhance customer experiences in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, finance, and retail. Enterprise spending on GenAI is projected to rise from $40 billion in 2024 to $151 billion by 2027 (Source: IDC), reflecting AI’s proven success and high ROI.

Despite high interest in Generative AI, only 10% of organizations had implemented GenAI solutions in 2023 (Source: cnvrg.io). Barriers include significant infrastructure challenges, as AI workloads require robust computational power and advanced data storage, which many organizations lack. Deploying AI also demands specialized skills and financial investment, which can be prohibitive for small and medium-sized enterprises. Integration issues and regulatory and ethical concerns related to data privacy and security further complicate deployment.
