Businesses are constantly seeking strategies to maintain growth and resilience. Digital transformation is the ‘dragon’ they need to slay their competition, tackle market challenges, and meet customer expectations and demands.  

At the core of this digital transformation in 2024 is harnessing artificial intelligence (AI). AI empowers companies to streamline processes and operations, reduce costs, create novel products and solutions, and enhance decision-making capabilities on multiple levels. Moreover, AI can pinpoint what consumers want by analyzing vast amounts of data, including consumer behavior, preferences and input, to identify patterns and trends. Ultimately, it is a formidable tool for companies to pivot their strategies, tap into new avenues of growth and enhance customer engagement.

The recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas showcased the widespread influence of AI to accomplish just that across diverse industries, including home automation, appliances, health tech and especially automotive companies who are integrating AI to redefine the driving experience.
