AI analytics research is an industry that is expected to grow to $70 billion by 2020 from $8.2 billion in 2013, according to IDC research. Engines of this development are companies like IBM, Google, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft. However, most agree with Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, that the work of building machines that teach themselves still belongs to science fiction. IBM CEO Ginni Rometty express the 105 year-old company’s vision in the following way: “I would say in five years, there’s no doubt in my mind that cognitive AI will impact every decision made” from healthcare to education to financial services. IBM has been working on its Watson supercomputer since 2005 where the focus is directed at that AI takes care of the big data flow for analytics, while humans make the progressive decisions. Internet of things is one of the areas that this development is vital. Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, predict a golden era of AI development. According to Elon Musk, CEO at Tesla Motors and SpaceX, artificial intelligence technology will develop computers so advanced that humans will require implant “neural laces” in their brains to keep up. This is some of the visions that were discussed at a conference by the online publication Recode this week. Source: Reuters
