The race to dominate the AI space

The launch of Chat GPT-4 in March of this year provided the catalyst for a conversation that has been gaining momentum for some time now: How will artificial intelligence (AI) change the world?

How retailers can embrace AI to build loyalty

A key retail tech approach for 2023 is clienteling, which uses AI to offer customers the best of both worlds – the human touch coupled with the most personalised digital experiences.

According to the Boston Consulting Group, although 59% of organisations have developed an AI strategy, and 57% have carried out pilot projects in the area, only 11% have seen any kind of return from AI. That said, the potential is vast; some sources estimate that the size of the global AI market could increase tenfold from $15bn (2021) to $150bn by 2028, and in the UK, expenditure on AI technologies could reach £83bn by 2040, from £16.7bn in 2020.
