Here’s a sign that AI is now a core part of many enterprises.

Top executives now oversee most artificial intelligence projects, underscoring the importance C-suite managers place on A.I. for their companies.

In a survey of companies released Tuesday about the state of A.I. in business, 71% of respondents said that their company’s A.I. projects were “owned” by C-level executives, which include the likes of CEOs, chief financial officers, and chief technology officers. It’s a big jump from last year’s survey, conducted by the data training and annotation firm Appen, that found that the C-suite oversaw 39% of A.I. projects.
