The Artificial Intelligence (AI) market will grow from $202 million to more than $11 billion by 2024.

What’s driving this explosive growth?

  1. “Big Data” — Between 2009 and 2020, the data we need to keep track of will grow by 44 times. (IDC, 2014)
  2. Fewer Bodies — 62% of businesses believe slow processes are limiting their revenue. (IDC, 2014)
  3. Computational Power — In 2000, $1,000 bought the computation power of a cricket. By 2020 the same $1,000 will buy a human brain. (Kurzweil Technologies, Inc., 2015)

There are two types of AI

  1. Deterministic: software that executes a known series of steps in a pre-programmed sequence to arrive at a solution. Describes most software applications today. (Decoded Sciences, February 2012)
  2. Non-Deterministic: Applications that explore an exponentially large number of inputs to arrive at a previously unknown output through the recognition of patterns and categories in the data. (Decoded Science, February 2012)

80% of businesses believe AI improves worker performance and creates jobs. (Narrative Science, 2015)

This is called Machine Learning. 44% of business believe AI can be helpful in making better business decisions. (Narrative Science, 2015)
