The Pros And Cons Of Hiring A Chief AI Officer

The C-Suite grows merrier by the minute as increasingly more executives join the party at the top. From just a handful of head honchos, many companies now employ a full roster of “chiefs” — including chief data officers, chief customer officers, and chief culture officers — to take on crucial, enterprise-wide functions.
