Why Read This Report

Artificial intelligence (AI) is back, and the tech industry's interest is stronger than ever. AI will have an important impact on the design and creation of software. Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals need to understand the potential benefits AI will bring, not only to how they build software but also to the nature of the applications themselves. In parallel, AD&D pros should not ignore the challenges and risks that come with AI. This report is the first of a series that will examine the impact of AI on software development and separate myth from reality.
