In a recent survey by Tech Pro Research, only 28 percent of respondents, most of whom were in IT leadership positions, said they have firsthand experience with AI or machine learning. However, if the survey results hold true, the majority of respondents will be using the technologies at work in the next few years.

Another interesting findings from this survey was that while 42 percent of respondents said their technical staff lack the skills to implement and support AI and machine learning, 41 percent said that all the work in this area would be done in-house. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said their companies were also still working on selecting AI and machine learning vendors.
