TECH, The A.I. Situation.

on July 06, 2023

"Ah, the techno-wonderland we live in. The tech industry, dominated by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), has seeped its electronic tendrils into our daily lives. Heck, even my toaster talks to me about the optimal browning settings for my bagel. Let's face it, developments in this field are firing up companies to churn out gold mines of innovation faster than you can say 'uncanny valley.'

By the end of 2022, the crystal ball of businesses was forecasting around 35 AI projects popping up like mushrooms after rain. And the forecast is sunny with a chance of raining billions. The AI and ML market are growing like a teenage mutant ninja turtle on steroids - an annual average growth of 44% or around $9 billion.

Global techno-jibber-jabber in the retail scene is going through the roof. Picture this: a projected growth rate for global retail AI of 35% by 2026. It's like the tech version of Usain Bolt on a caffeine rush! Remember the COVID-19 pandemic? No? Me neither. Anyhoo, it was the Red Bull for our techno-ecosystem, fueling a mad rush for online shopping.

Switching to the digital bazaars became the norm and, boy oh boy, did the retail giants pounce on the opportunity. In the blink of an eye, e-commerce, marketing, and product management started doing the tango with AI. The U.S. Department of Commerce even whispered sweet predictions of $6 trillion retail sales by 2023 into our ears. Now that's a jackpot!

Where's machine learning in this, you ask? Well, imagine machine learning is AI's wingman. It's the guy who gives AI the secret sauce to offer a personalized, interactive shopping experience, something like, 'Hey, remember you bought those neon socks last week? We got matching flip flops!'

IBM dropped some serious knowledge, saying the AI integration in commerce and manufacturing could hit 80% within three years. But, of course, there are party-poopers who still hesitate to adopt AI, and a shortage of AI whisperers could stall the growth in 2023.

We're staring at a future where product optimization is the belle of the ball, and AI is the charming prince. Recommendations and planning in retail will be AI's loyal subjects. Meanwhile, human speech processing, deep learning, and automated decision-making programs will be court jesters juggling big data.

The Consumer Technology Association pointed out some of the AI benefits that might as well have capes and superpowers: cost savings, high productivity, quick decision-making, rapid delivery, and - hold your breath - smart bots and autonomous vehicles. Think Optimus Prime delivering your Amazon Prime package!

Speaking of which, tech behemoths like NVIDIA, Intel, Salesforce, Microsoft, Google, IBM, Amazon Web Services, and Sentient Technologies are leading the pack in AI domination. In the words of Kanye, 'we on an ultralight beam, this is a god dream!'

Moving on to the dishy AI trends for 2023. Let's start with Hyperautomation. It's not just a fancy term. Imagine putting innovation on steroids and then watching tasks fly by with barely any human sweat. Businesses are swimming in data, and it's only fair they need more automated systems to keep afloat.

AI, ML, and robot-assisted process automation (RPA) are the usual suspects in this field. What's the goal, you ask? To mix these innovations like a perfect cocktail that simplifies and automates business processes, not just duct-taping solutions on issues.

In the world of AI, information security is like the cool uncle. AI and MLare packing heat with tools to bulletproof cyber security, making it automated and as risk-free as an armadillo in a bunker. The key players here are machine learning that can analyze and detect threats like a cyberspace Sherlock Holmes, and AI that classifies, processes, clusters and filters incoming info.

Wait, there's more! AI and ML are the superheroes of cloud migration, boosting performance when it comes to working with large amounts of data. Think of it as clearing out your garage, but the garage is the size of Texas and all your stuff is digital.

In the realm where AI, ML, and Internet of Things (IoT) intersect, things are getting smart and secure. By 2022-end, Gartner estimates that around 80% of IoT projects in corporations will have an AI or ML component. To translate, every gadget is going to be hooked up to the internet and ready to respond based on the info it gathers.

Imagine the information that these brainy devices can tap into - temperature, pressure, humidity, air cleanliness, sound changes, and even vision recognition. Your coffee maker could be an AI agent in disguise! This tech can be found in smart homes, cities, wearable devices, and even in AR/VR devices.

In smart homes, lights, temperature, and appliances are not just automated but tailored to the homeowner's habits, adding a pinch of personal touch. Think of it as a butler who knows how you like your coffee, when you want your bed made and also how often you want to binge-watch your favorite show.

AIoT is also making smart cities smarter, keeping an eye on order, safety, and the convenience of life. It's making transportation, lighting, and energy systems all work together like a well-oiled machine. In the industrial sector, AI and ML simplify data analysis, optimizing activities, supply chains, and logistics. It's like having a backstage crew that ensures the show runs smoothly.

The icing on the cake is AI's role in business forecasting and analysis. Making highly accurate forecasts is now as easy as pie. Financial companies are already on board, using AI and ML to forecast trends and make informed decisions.

So, brace yourselves, people! It's a wild AI ride, and it's only getting crazier. From toasters with an opinion to hyper-smart homes and cities, we're at the precipice of a new age. Get ready to ride the AI wave, folks! Let's make 2023 a year of hyper-automation, AI-optimized security, and smart everything. Welcome to the future!"
