Artificial intelligence is the biggest thing to happen in the world of technology since the invention of computers. AI market spending has gone through the roof. This year it’s an $8 billion market. By 2020, the market will reach $47 billion. Exciting things are coming. Here are some of the ways the world’s top tech companies are going to introduce AI into our daily lives.
Google is currently leading the self-driving vehicle market and is probably going to be the first to have a fully autonomous vehicle in the hands of consumers. They also own TensorFlow, an open source AI software library that anyone can use to experiment with creating machine learning programs.
Apple’s digital assistant, Siri, relies heavily on machine learning to accurately provide information and assistance for iPhone and iPad users.
Microsoft has its own version of Siri called “Cortana.” If Microsoft’s claims are to be believed, Cortana is about to get a major update that would make her the most accurate speech recognition machine in existence.
Intel recently purchased chipmaker, Movidius and Nervana Systems, a deep learning AI startup. Intel is trying to create the first line of CPUs that use neural computer architectures.
Don’t let big companies have all the fun
The year 2016 has been an unprecedented one for artificial intelligence startups which have raised a record amount of funding. Expect to see a number of exciting AI startups in the coming years that do big things.
