What’s Trending in Artificial Intelligence in 2018?
Machine learning is a form of Artificial Intelligence. Companies have started using the smart algorithm to help machine make a more informed decision. The possibilities of AI are innumerable and it will have a huge impact in coming days.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning have been forecasted as the game changer. In Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic technology Trends for 2018, he described “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are jointly contributing to the gradual build-up of the Intelligent Digital Mesh.” In this article, we will talk about the on-going trends of AI.
1. Consumers will interact more with devices
Approximately 20 million Amazon Alexa speakers were sold in 2017 and if we add Google and Apple’s devices, you can imagine how many people are already interacting with technology.
As smart assistants become integrated with our daily used devices, by the end of 2018, consumers will become more comfortable with voice-based technology.
2. Logistic is becoming efficient
Amazon Robotics is already helping big-box retailers with logistic using combination of artificial intelligence and advanced robotics. We are entering a world where the warehouse will be filled with highly efficient robots that can work 24/7 and they can even work without light. The technology is growing and we will witness AI’s prominent role in different industries.
3. Peer-to-peer networking
The rise of peer-to-peer networks like the one used by cryptocurrency will help the small companies to run advanced AI programs by using the collective power of connected personal computers.
4. Machine learning will support workers too
While some are concerned that AI will put crowds out of work, AI technology also has the capability to empower employees, especially those are in the knowledge sector.
According to Carrie Christensen, Operations VP of Mint Solar “This technology can coach customer-facing service workers to speak more effectively. Expect AI to increasingly support white-collar workers in 2018 and beyond.”
5. AI in medical diagnostics
Ben Hortman, CEO of Bet Capital LLC explained: “We are entering a time where a peer-to-peer network of computers could have the capability of solving some of the world’s most challenging health problems by collecting and analyzing human molecular data.”
This technology was inspired by two trends- blockchain and AI.
Something we read in a science fiction novel is now a reality. Technology is growing and it is changing the worldwide economy too. However, every business should take some advantage of the on-going tech trends.
