Apple, IBM and AI for the Enterprise

Following,  the details will be interesting, especially for enterprise applications.   Have seen relatively few AI driven applications in the enterprise.   As part of a team that looked at well focused and valued applications for an enterprise, they numbered few.   Now we need to see goal specific AI that not only provides measurable value, but also demonstrates the use of Watson driven AI for future work.

Expect more A.I. in Apple's iOS enterprise future
The IBM/Apple deal is opening new possibilities in AI

The deal means the airline will be making more use of Apple’s mobile solutions, with numerous new apps for different purposes. I caught up with Heidi Fillmore, Executive Partners, Travel & Transportation Apple + IBM Product Lead.

Together, Apple and IBM are building a strong bridge into the lucrative enterprise IT market.  .... "
