27.7 Company incorporation of machine learning

The degree of machine learning utilization in the companies of the participants is shown in the graph below

All participants of companies with > 10,000 employees declare that "We have well established ML methods (i.e., models in production for more than 2 years)"

Splitting the graphs up for each category of company size and plotting the incorporation of machine learning shows this even more clearly

Leaving out the “> 10,000 employees” category for better comparison


  • More companies explore machine learning than having it established
  • Many companies don’t use machine learning
    • However, their employees invest in ML
    • Danger of loosing employees
    • Maybe companies are slow to discover ML potential
