The adoption of what we call AI@scale introduces much larger changes in operating models and skills than did traditional digital and big data programs. While big data and analytics are already helping to generate the first wave of digital transformations, full-blown AI will drive the second. Armed with this data, companies can start to rely on AI. “AI brings much more radical changes than digital, because AI systems can make decisions and take action.

Water conservation problems are an increasing risk for businesses themselves. The World Resources Institute says more than a billion people currently live in water-scarce regions and this could rise to 3.5 billion by 2025. Meanwhile, Nasa has found that 13 of the world’s 37 most important groundwater basins are depleting much faster than they can be recharged. There are many benefits to companies operating in water-intensive industries going above and beyond their CSR initiatives.Businesses with water stewardship CSR initiatives can, benefit from knowing that the work they’re doing is helping to secure their own future.
