Artificial intelligence in the enterprise is just yesterday's dumb algorithms rebranded as AI

Join the debate

Welcome to the inaugural Register Debate in which we pitch our writers against each other, and you – the reader – decide the winning side.

The format is simple: a motion is proposed, for and against arguments are published over the course of a week, during which you can cast your vote here, choosing whether you're in favor or against the motion. The final totals will be announced on Friday. It's up to our writers to convince you to vote for their side.

Presented by The Register® — Biting the hand that feeds IT

This motion tackles AI: is this artificial intelligence genuinely useful, does the technology as it stands today have a place in the enterprise, or is it simply a cynical marketing turn to dress up previous algorithms as intelligent? Read, decide, vote, and comment!
