CUTTER BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY JOURNAL. Now we're accepting article ideas for
this special issue


GUEST EDITOR: San Murugesan







Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just the stuff of science fiction
movies; it's real and transforming the way we live and do business. AI
encompasses several technologies including machine learning (ML), deep
learning (DL), and chatbots. AI is currently being used in domains such as
finance, manufacturing, healthcare, automotive, entertainment, security, and
in cyber-physical systems, to name a few.


As well, large investments are being made in research, development and
marketing of AI products, tools and services. There is increasing awareness
of AI and its promises, limitations and concerns. To gain dominance in the
AI landscape, there is fierce competition among technology giants as well as
startups. Ongoing developments in AI and the resulting possibilities are
impressive and likely to further transform the world. Alternatively, there
are serious concerns of the ethical implications and potential harmful
effects of AI applications on society.


An upcoming issue of Cutter Business Technology Journal, Guest Edited by San
Murugesan, is seeking insight on the key challenges, opportunities, business
applications, new research, technologies, strategies, and ethical
considerations of AI, machine learning, deep learning and chatbots, now and
in the future. It will also seek to examine the key technologies that will
have a transformative influence, present insight on strategies and
approaches for realizing its potential, and discuss emerging new issues and
concerns and how it may impact IT jobs and businesses.
