AI, Blockchain and IoT big talking points for CEOs when it comes to disruption

Artificial intelligence, Blockchain and the Internet of Things have been revealed as the most talked about themes amongst global CEOs when it comes to disruptive technologies. 

According to data and analytics company GlobalData, Artificial Intelligence (AI) emerged as the most frequently mentioned theme in the discussions of the world’s leading CEOs during the first half (H1) of 2019.

The results come from an analysis of GlobalDatas CEO Influencer Platform, which tracks over 300 of the worlds leading CEOs from blue chip companies and unicorns, and their discussions pertaining to emerging trends, pain areas, new fields of innovation and other popular areas on Twitter.

The analysis revealed that Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT) were the other disruptive technologies which received huge coverage during the period.

“Most CEOs concur that AI will have a fundamental impact on their organisations by enhancing the extraction of data to augment the adequacy of their activities and upgrade the customer experience,” explains Amandeep Gill, influencer research head at GlobalData.

GlobalData’s CEO Influencer Platform also revealed that the healthcare industry is a huge interest area amongst the leading CEOs within AI spectrum, where they are alluding to the benefits of AI for healthcare providers and patients with real-time analytics.

“From automotive to healthcare, disruption has hit multiple industries catering to the evolving demand of high level of personalisation and customisation,” says Gill. 

“Innovation has not only eased the efficacy in supply chain by providing electronic health records (EHR) in healthcare industry, but also provided millennials with distinct unique experiences lining from smart products to autonomous vehicles,” he explains.
