Are You Ready for a RoboCEO?


Here’s a disturbing thought: A RoboCEO powered by artificial intelligence — possibly based on IBM’s Watson — could be running some companies within the next decade. Not every company will warm to the idea, to be sure, but it’s conceivable that the practice could begin. Are you ready to work for a RoboCEO? Though it seems farfetched, this idea has started to bubble to the surface, with leaders like Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma apparently taking it seriously. As any technological leap, there’s quite a bit of both good and bad around AI.

Can this really work? You be the judge. It will be different from any other analysis you might have come across because I do not wish to discuss candidates. I am all about the customer. Two CRM issues inform politics this year — empowering the customer and engaging the customer to produce loyalty.
