Artificial intelligence (AI) is an umbrella term that includes multiple technologies, such as machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), machine reasoning, and strong AI. Tractica defines AI as an information system that is inspired by a biological system designed to give computers the human-like abilities of hearing, seeing, reasoning, and learning. AI has applications and use cases in almost every industry vertical and is considered the next big technological shift, similar to past shifts like the industrial revolution, the computer age, and the smartphone revolution.

The AI market may be enabled by technology, but ultimately it is a more practical focus on use cases that will define the business of AI.  Based on Tractica’s comprehensive analysis of more than 300 potential use cases, this white paper provides details and insights on the top 15 use cases, in terms of revenue potential during the next decade, that represent the industry’s most promising areas for implementation and growth.  The paper includes real-world case study examples, an assessment of which industry players are pursuing specific applications, and a quantification of the market opportunity for each of the top use cases.

This Tractica white paper presents the top 15 use cases for artificial intelligence, based on their cumulative AI software revenue opportunity during the period from 2016 through 2025. The forecast data presented is part of a larger report published by Tractica, Artificial Intelligence Market Forecasts. This paper provides a deeper qualitative assessment of the top 15 use cases, the categories of which they are part, and an overview of the industries that are represented. The white paper also includes strategic business recommendations for anyone that is looking at taking advantage of the artificial intelligence market opportunity.
