Venture capitalist Vinod Khosla envisions a world where IT systems will use data they put out to build adaptive systems “that have the capability to utilize human judgment and decision making.” He shared this vision yesterday during Gigaom’s Structure Conference in San Francisco.

He explained that one of the biggest opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators in the enterprise is cutting out the human IT staff and going full automation, potentially with technologies like deep learning.

“Customers don’t have a clue where their businesses are going to go, so let’s build infrastructure so they can respond. Plan not to plan, and be really agile,” said Khosla.

Khosla says he’s optimistic that there will be a lot more interest and innovation around enterprise IT.
