Artificial intelligence market to grow by $1.1 trillion in four years

IDC researchers highlighted that such big numbers were not surprising as the IT sphere involves a huge amount of resources. Most of expenses account for the personnel rather than software and hardware. Even companies that focus on IT spend no more than 5% of their income on innovation technologies.

Experts claimed that the next year would be an important stage of AI adoption. Over 40% of companies (among 1000 surveyed) intend to integrate cutting-edge AI solutions. 25% of those companies will use machine learning systems, 27% – text analysis tools, 30% – methods of natural language recognition, 31% – algorithms of numerical analysis. Consequently, companies willing to maintain their market positions should also consider implementing artificial intelligence and start training their staff already today.

Revenue growth from the usage of AI systems in commerce by regions:

  • 1st place – the USA – $596 billion;
  • 2nd place – Japan – $91 billion;
  • 3rd place – Germany – $62 billion;
  • 4th place – the UK – $55 billion;
  • 5th place – France – $50 billion.

Interestingly, investor Mark Cuban believes that the world’s first trillionaire will be the person engaged in the development or investing money in artificial intelligence.
