Artificial Intelligence Advisory Council

Who We Are

CompTIA’s AI Advisory Council brings together thought leaders and innovators to identify business opportunities and develop innovative content to accelerate adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.

What We Stand For

The AI Advisory Council is committed to building the strategies and resources necessary to help companies leverage AI to be more successful. The council also collaborates with CompTIA’s other industry advisory councils to further study the IT channel, blockchain, drones, business applications and internet of things. Together, we are working to:

  • Discuss and explore AI business opportunities.
  • Increase awareness for accelerated adoption across the tech ecosystem.
  • Develop strategies to create, deliver and support AI and other emerging technologies.
  • Foster greater integration of AI technology with other tech solutions.

How We’re Making an Impact

As demand for data-driven analytics increases across all aspects of business, artificial intelligence is opening more doors and helping companies achieve better results, faster. The AI Advisory Council develops best practices, use cases and other resources that can be used by anyone developing, selling or influencing AI solutions.
