The automotive industry is one of the most high-tech industries in the world – so a headline finding in a report published this week was, on the face of it, somewhat surprising. Capgemini’s report – Accelerating Automotive’s AI Transformation – found that during 2018, the number of companies in the industry deploying AI “at scale” grew only marginally by 3%.
This reflected that just 10% of respondents surveyed said that their organizations were deploying AI-driven initiatives across the entirety of its operations “with full scope and scale,” during 2018, compared to 7% in 2017. The relatively slow pace of growth is evidence that “the industry has not made significant progress in AI-driven transformation since 2017”, the report concludes – a surprising finding given the scale of investment and enthusiasm shown by industry leaders.
