Asia’s AI agenda is an MIT Technology Review Insights research program sponsored by ADP, IMDA, Genesys, Splunk, and the Asia School of Business. It is designed to comprehensively examine the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in Asia Pacific from four distinct angles: Asia’s AI ecosystem, the leading use cases and business applications across the region, the evolving talent landscape, and the emerging discussions around AI and ethics.
To produce this series, MIT Technology Review Insights conducted a survey of almost 900 executives across 13 markets, and a series of interviews with leading authorities from academia and industry.
The research is editorially independent and the views expressed are those of MIT Technology Review Insights.
- In September and October 2018, MIT Technology Review Insights surveyed 871 senior business leaders. Twenty-nine percent are CIOs, CTOs, or heads of AI or analytics. More than half (53%) are C-suite and director-level executives. Almost 60% are from large companies with more than $1 billion in revenue.
- Survey respondents are based in 13 Asia-Pacific markets: Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. A minimum of 50 people from each country responded.
- Respondents are drawn from a wide range of industries, including more than 50 from each of the following sectors: consumer goods and retail, financial services, information technology and communications, manufacturing,pharmaceuticals and healthcare, professional services, property, construction and engineering, and transport and logistics.
