The robots are coming! New research by Narrative Science, predicted that 62% of organisations will be using artificial intelligence solutions by 2018.
The concept of AI may seem revolutionary, but it is something which is already present in our day-to-day lives.
Apple's Siri will soon be upgraded, enabling iPhone users to interact with a number of third party apps such as message bots, photo search, personal payments and more.
Other examples of everyday use of AI include the smart home. Smart thermostats now include the ability to learn your behavioural patterns, learning your daily routine, saving you energy and money on your monthly bill.
Further key findings of the survey includes:
- 26% are currently using AI technologies to automate manual, repetitive tasks, up from 15% in 2015
- 25% are using automated written reporting and communications
- 27% see automation of manual and repetitive tasks as the most important benefit of an AI solution
- 61% of enterprises with an innovation strategy are applying AI to their data to find previously missed opportunities such as process improvements or new revenue streams

How the corporate players are taking advantage of AI
Watson is IBM's flagship omni-channel cognitive solution, which uses a combination of powerful big data analytics and natural language comprehension to 'think' like a human brain. With the ability to scan up to 40 million documents in 15 seconds, coupled with the ability to understand 'complex' queries, Watson can find answers to problems faced by any industry and present them in an easily presentable format - some of the major applications include rapid, comprehensive diagnosis within the health industry, or revolutionising the way we practice law by scanning millions of case studies and presenting a readable, compelling argument.
DeepMind is an artificial intelligence company which uses the best from both machine learning and systems neuroscience in order to build powerful learning algorithms.
It broke the news a few months ago when Google DeepMind's child AlphaGo was able to defeat legendary Go player Se-dol in what came as an unprecedented victory. Go is an ancient Chinese board game and one of the biggest challenges faced by AI due to the strategic planning nature of the game.
