This article reads like an IT suppliers letter to Santa.

Where can they take their tech and sell it in based on the AI wave.

It was only a year ago when I asked a bank what was the objective behind their Blockchain project?  The answer was, objective?  we just have to tell the board we have one.

It kind of feels that AI is in a similar frame, let's throw some money at it and at least when the board say what is out plan for AI we can point that this pilot.

Sorry to be a party pooper, but you need a strategy.  Understand where the company is going with AI and invest so the whole board understand why.
