The Secret Sauce for AI Unicorns

Just adding an AI to an existing task will not make you an AI Unicorn.

Many new AI applications are formulaic.

Some Everyday Task + AI = AI doing that task being performed as good or better than a human.

Reading medical images, analyzing traffic patterns, or even writing up stories about quarterly earnings reports (Wall street journal uses AI for this). This gives a temporary competitive advantage, but it will not last long.
