‘Procureminator’? How Artificial Intelligence will change the face of procurement


The procurement systems of tomorrow will be nothing like the ones used just a few years ago. The reason is AI. It will change not only the way companies’ source services and products, it will also increase the speed rapidly and demand a completely new skill set of the procurement officers everywhere.

In a sense, the procurement professional of tomorrow will leverage cognitive inputs and recommendations that augment her decision-making.
