How to Get AHEAD in a World of AI, Algorithms, Bots, and Big Data
 

The rise of AI is the great story of our time. Those who succeed in the next phase of the digital economy are not those who can create the new machines, but those who figure out what to do with them. What To Do When Machines Do Everything is your field guide to winning with AI.

 

Authors Malcolm Frank, Paul Roehrig and Ben Pring of Cognizant argue that contrary to the doom and gloom that surrounds much of IT and business at the moment, we are in fact on the cusp of the biggest wave of opportunity creation since the Industrial Revolution.

 

A clear-cut business model is presented to help leaders take part in this coming boom; the AHEAD model outlines five strategic initiatives—Automate, Halos, Enhance, Abundance, and Discovery—that are central to competing in the next phase of global business by driving new levels of efficiency, customer intimacy and innovation.

BIOGRAPHY
BEN PRING

VP, Director, Center for the Future of Work

Ben Pring leads Cognizant's Future of Work Center and came to Cognizant in September 2011 after spending the previous 15 years with Gartner as a senior industry analyst researching and advising on areas such as Cloud Computing and Global Sourcing. Prior to Gartner, Ben worked for a number of consulting companies including Coopers and Lybrand.

At Gartner, Ben was one of the lead analysts on all things Cloud; he wrote the industry's first research notes on Cloud Computing (in 1997), on Salesforce.com (in 2001) and became well known in the IT industry for providing predictions of the nature and velocity of the change that would impact everyone as the paradigm shifted again and Cloud Computing become the foundation for the next wave of competition in global IT. Ben was also heavily involved in tracking and analyzing the emergence of IT talent from outside western markets and the impact that globalization would have on business and IT strategies for organizations of all types.

Ben's expertise in helping clients see around corners, think the unthinkable and calculate the compound annual growth rate of unintended consequences has brought him to Cognizant where his charter is to research and analyze how clients can leverage the incredibly powerful new opportunities that are being created as new technologies make computing power more pervasive, more affordable and more important than ever before.

Now based near Boston, MA, Ben graduated with a degree in Philosophy from Manchester University in the UK where he grew up.
