IBM response
Here is IBM's statement in response to the Jeffries report, which doesn't directly address it, but implies that it already has all the talent it needs for AI because of its head start:

The Watson platform is open for anyone to use, and we're seeing a lot of interesting applications built with our services (like the 1,000 bots developer partner DoNotPay launched with Watson yesterday). IBM also has a deep bench of talent - we've been the top U.S. company for patent awards for the past consecutive 24 years, and our inventors received over 8,000 patents in 2016 alone. IBM invests $6B annually in research, and we have more than 1,000 brilliant minds focusing solely on cutting-edge AI research.

We're leading in commercializing AI technology, and making sure that we're also working with a team of experts who understand how clients and partners will most effectively use the technology - that means over 6,000 people just in our Watson Health division, including neuro-oncologists who work with physicians and hospital staff. Looking at other industries, we have financial experts training Watson on regulatory issues, meteorologists working on applying Watson to weather, and lawyers helping bring Watson legal technologies to market.  Watson is being applied - at scale - to advance healthcare, develop more efficient ways of managing energy and resources, and increasing productivity. We'd call that a pretty good return on investment

Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
