Businesses who fail to implement artificial intelligence programs in their day-to-day activities risk falling behind, said Ambereen Toubassy, the chief financial officer of Airtable.

"Ultimately, businesses that don't adopt AI risk falling behind," she told Fox News Digital. 

"The three most recent major technological advancements have been the internet, mobile and cloud. While each has created massive new companies, disrupted others and generally boosted productivity - I would argue the internet has been the most pervasive. It is practically impossible to be successful today while ignoring it, while in contrast, many large companies continue to thrive without having made their move into the cloud. I think AI is more like the internet - that is, an advancement that companies cannot afford to fall behind on - as opposed to the cloud, where being cautious has not been debilitating," Toubassy continued.
