At the IBM Think 2018 conference, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty lamented that only 20 percent of all data created is searchable. She points out this is an area where artificial intelligence can help immensely. Advances in machine learning and computing power can help businesses and other customers to turn huge amounts of data into more valuable, searchable data.
Back to the 20 percent searchable and the 80 percent data that is not. The 80 percent data is being created by companies, private sector and other customers. Since this is a huge amount of data, you need something like Artificial Intelligence to sift through the data so it makes some sense for you. Only then, this data can create some additional value.

Ginni believes, and we at Fudzilla agree, that entities which adapt and learn will be able to win against its competitors. You can simply outlearn the competition and win the next round.
