A vast majority of the leaders surveyed (93%) also believe that AI will improve decision-making. Many are making that judgment based on their experience with big data analytics tools that incorporate machine learning. Enterprises are already using these systems to become more data-driven and to respond more quickly to changes in the market.

Interestingly, a smaller majority (63%) also believe that AI will help negate unconscious bias in decision-making. The theory is that because machines are free from societal forces, they won't share the same unconscious stereotypes and prejudices that color human thinking. In practice, however, AI systems sometimes adopt the attitudes of their developers or humans with whom they interact. In fact, IBM believes this is such a problem that it released a cloud-based tool designed to spot bias in AI systems.
