Michael Dell has warned that firms not using artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning to make business decisions in the near future will be "doing it wrong".
In a post on LinkedIn, plugging Dell EMC's Ready bundles, Dell (pictured) warned that businesses need to be utilising the capabilities and output from AI, or risk making errors.
"In the not too distant future, if you are making decisions in your organisation without machine learning, you are probably doing it wrong," he said.
Dell's warning comes as Dell EMC launches "Dell EMC Ready", which bundles together networking, server and storage solutions that are optimised for AI and machine learning-based applications.
The vendor says the bundles are optimised to allow applications in areas including fraud detection, image processing and financial investment analysis.
Dell EMC claims that, while a number of organisations globally are deploying AI solutions, very few have the infrastructure to effectively manage the systems and the data they churn out.
The Dell EMC Ready range will be available from the vendor directly, and through channel partners, in the first half of 2018.
Dell's warning comes after chancellor Phillip Hammond announced a £75m investment in AI, including £20m towards supporting businesses in developing AI.
A recent study from Deloitte found that nine in 10 UK businesses plan to invest in AI by 2020, but that the majority are piloting the technology rather than investing in full deployments.
