IBM is warning about the about slow progress being made in some countries' adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

The study concluded that the U.K. is falling behind its European neighbors in AI adoption, with employers blaming a lack of skills in areas like software engineering, problem solving, and knowledge of programming languages.

The survey of 7,500 business leaders by IBM found that about a third of U.K. respondents said their company had accelerated their rollout of AI during the past two years, compared with a European average of 49%.

The lack of AI-ready skills means businesses can't harness AI tech to solve the shortage of labor and skills they are already facing.
