Intelligent Economies: AI's transformation of industries and society.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to profoundly affect the ways in which businesses and governments engage with consumers and citizens alike.

From advances in genetic diagnostics to industrial automation, these widespread changes will have significant economic, social and civic implications.

With this in mind, Microsoft has unveiled a whitepaper, 'Intelligent Economies: AI's transformation of industries and society', that aims to explore the transformative potential of AI on markets and societies across the developed and developing worlds.

This report, developed by The Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Microsoft, draws on a survey of more than 400 senior executives working in various industries, including financial services, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, retail and the public sector.

Survey respondents operate in eight markets: France, Germany, Mexico, Poland, South Africa, Thailand, the UK and the US.

Read the report to learn how people are using AI to make the production and distribution of goods and services more intelligent.
