BPM will become a key driving force behind further development of AI. Machine learning in business applications is blind without guiding role of BPM, similarly as a company is blind without its management.

Despite impressive success, AI is still in its infancy in respect to its literal involvement into high level business processes. Concurrently with the increase of the role of AI in principal business contexts, there will grow demand for BPM in coordination and structuring of AI for business purposes.

As in any other business domain, BPM is suitable and responsible for proper AI positioning in business. Without precise BPM governance, AI bears excessive risks for a business as any important but poorly managed and not transparent part of ongoing operations in an organization.
