Canadian companies are not ready to take advantage of artificial intelligence

TORONTO, CANADA, March 2018

In a recent survey of Canadian managers and executives Modus Research found that while a clear majority felt that Canada needed to be a leader in Artificial Intelligence, only a small percentage thought that their organizations were ready and over 70% have yet to adopt any form of AI. The key is the level of digitalization and the main concern is the cost.

These results came from a survey conducted February, 2019 amongst 973 managers and executives from the Modus Business panel, the only fully representative and randomly sampled panel of all managers and executives across Canada. The results have been weighted by organization size and region and are accurate to within 3% points 95 times out of a 100.
