The AI market is possibly one of the toughest to keep track of, as the pace of change is relentless. Making predictions is even harder for this market, as one tends to follow what is known as Amara’s Law, overestimating the potential of a technology in the short term and underestimating it in the longer term. Nevertheless, as part of a new white paper, Tractica has identified 10 key predictions that cover various aspects of the ever-evolving AI market, based on the firm’s ongoing research and analysis including extensive primary research and interviews.
According to Tractica’s white paper, key trends to watch in the AI market in 2019 will include the commercialization of promising technologies, the growth of new application markets, changes in hardware architectures and infrastructure to support AI deployments, and continuing evolution of business models and public policy issues.
