In a not so far away future, we will have to work hard on this set of questions: When will robots (artificial intelligence) become trusted members of corporate innovation teams? How will this happen? Who will make it happen? What is the impact? We should be on the forefront on this development and Transform XO is taking the first steps now while calling for partners. The focus will be on corporate innovation capabilities that can help companies improve on their innovation outcomes (products and services).
