The Forbes 2019 predictions focus on AI-related developments. The big picture clearly shows how the interviewed professionals expect specialized AI to infuse more and more business operations levels.
There is a promise of “less hype and more practical, precise, and narrow AI”. This should make various organizations feel enthusiastic about the next stage in business automation.
In what follows, see our highlights from the original article:
Self-Driving Finance, as a practical implementation of AI“Financial institutions will require specialized forms of AI for each of their customer segments such as retail, small business, and wealth”.
Companies everywhere will develop internal means to manage their Big Data
“Organizations will come to realize that they need tools to easily create quality AI data internally”.
AI-based process discovery should take off
“Process discovery is like a sensor embedded in the application that learns all of the user journeys, using AI to predict the optimal path for interacting with a system”.
3D printing would benefit from AI-enhanced HMI software that allows designers to test and experiment their ideas
“The designer will simply articulate the design goals and material parameters and the AI will do the rest—exploring nearly infinite design permutations based on existing design concepts”.
The new take on cloud and APIs should finally reveal AI’s role in effectiveness and efficiency at enterprise level
“In 2019 we’ll begin to see AI deliver meaningful value to the enterprise, (…) helping people at all levels of an organization do what they do more effectively and efficiently, while uncovering new opportunities and new ways to work”.
Personalized experiences beyond the first impression should meet the B2C-type of customer expectations
“As customer expectations increase, enterprises will need to keep pace by using machine learning and AI to offer a personalized experience beyond the first impression.”
We could witness the end of digital ownership, while the subscription model should replace it
“Today, we don’t own movies or music anymore—we subscribe to Netflix or Spotify. Tomorrow, we won’t own products anymore—we’ll subscribe to them. AI platforms are in the midst of turning every manufactured product on the planet into a connected ‘smart’ product”.
The AI hype will move forward into applied, practical AI
“We will see the focus shift from AI to ‘AI-driven’ results as companies look for real business impact from AI tools. The technology will be less important than the business insights it delivers”.
New concepts should refine and overwrite the latest technology as we know it
“A new wave is on the horizon—AI startups that generate proprietary data every time they’re used”.
AI should enter its friendly stage, functionality-wise, in order to win people over
“For people to feel a connection to AI-powered services and be willing to adopt them into every aspect of their lives, these services will have to become more and more anthropomorphized”.
