Jensen Harris said that voice-activated assistants are “just one small part of what AI is about – and not the part that will matter the most for the enterprise companies that actually buy almost $4 trillion in software and services each year”.
Harris said that the “the less-flashy flavour” of AI that is changing the nature of work itself.
Headless AI which is the application of artificial intelligence to vastly improve internal business processes is transforming the crucial machinery of business.
“Processes like hiring, lead generation, financial modelling, and information security. Legacy software has become a commodity in these areas, and purpose-built AI solutions will get a larger and larger wallet share of these huge enterprise cost centres,” Harris said.
Combining machine intelligence with learning loops, these constantly-evolving algorithms are “where the money is.”
Headless AI “doesn’t try to replace people; it gives them superpowers” — for example, predicting the future.
Harris said Headless AI is delivering radical productivity leaps that they haven’t seen from software in decades.
In the near future, AI will have transformed every core business function — hiring, sales, security, marketing, finance, manufacturing.
“Legacy software will get squeezed down into a smaller portion of the IT wallet as the most valuable services become the native AI platforms — just as form-based desktop software got squeezed out by the cloud in the last generation… the real enterprise revolution is happening in the companies that are using headless AI to transform their core businesses.”
