AI-washing: What it is, and how to spot it?

A great deal of innovation has happened since AI exploded into the mainstream with the advent of ChatGPT. However, the AI boom has not come without its own inopportune side effects. One such side effect has been companies selling false promises and vaporware in the name of AI—a trend called “AI-washing”.

But there are a few things buyers can look out for along their AI investment journey.
