It’s long been the stuff of science fiction, but increasingly, the practical side of artificial intelligence (AI) is very real. On the consumer side, personal assistants such as Siri, Alexa, and Cortana help automate the simplest of tasks. Meanwhile, AI adoption is also accelerating within your workspace.
According to a recent Spiceworks survey of more than 500 IT professionals, nearly a quarter of large companies have already implemented digital assistants and another 40% expect to follow suit by 2019. For small and medium businesses, that number is closer to 25%.
It’s virtually indisputable that AI (in the form of natural-language processing, machine learning, and deep learning) has tremendous potential to reduce costs and increase productivity for the enterprise. But its true impact comes to life when combined with human ingenuity.

According to the Enterprise Collaboration Report, 97% of organizations use two or more collaboration apps to stay on top of work planning and execution. Yet multiple apps can lead to disparate information and ultimately slow work down.
For teams that work across organizations, these issues are exponentially larger — in part because different workers choose their favorite app and check it often, but only look at the others sporadically, if at all. As a result, a project manager would need to engage stakeholders through different apps or expect significant delays in responses.
That’s why we’re excited to announce Smartsheet for Workplace. Workplace by Facebook is a dedicated and secure space for companies to connect, communicate, and collaborate using familiar Facebook features such as News Feed, groups, messages, and events. Now, with Smartsheet for Workplace, you can choose to receive Smartsheet notifications directly in Workplace.
