AI as a strategic area of investment in order to stand out from the crowd. For instance, a survey conducted by Vanson Bourne, a research firm on behalf of Teradata on 260 IT and business decision-makers, reveals that more than 80% of companies are investing in AI.
Industries impacted by AI
Even if AI has an impact on all industries, there are several areas that will be revolutionized by it. The above-mentioned survey also shows that 59% of companies from IT and telecommunication expect to take advantages from AI, followed by 43% business and professional services and 32% of customer services and financial services.
AI will revolutionize medicine
2018 it’s considered the year when AI will expand more to medical diagnostics. “By the end of next year, I think around half of leading healthcare systems will have adopted some form of AI within their diagnostic groups. In 2018, we’ll begin the adoption of a technology that may truly transform the way providers work, and the way patients experience healthcare, on a global scale”, explains Mark Michalski, executive director, “Massachusetts General Hospital” and “Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center” for Clinical Data Science.
AI in everyday life
AI has changed so much our daily life that soon we will ask ourselves how we were able to live without it. 2018 is expected to be the year in which voice-based gadgets will work together and have personalized media – from reports to music playlists, according to our taste and interests.
AI will create new jobs
AI also seems to bring changes in the labor market. People are concerned that their jobs will be replaced with robots in the future. According to a Gartner report from December 2017, AI will replace only low-level, routine work. Besides this, AI is expected to generate more new jobs – 2.3 million by 2020, while eliminating only 1.8 million jobs.
