The Megatrend of Artificial Intelligence: An update for technology decision-makers

artificial-intelligence-headThere are seven key megatrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity.

In this post we dive deeper into Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence is the discipline of thinking machines. The field is growing dramatically with the proliferation of high powered computers into homes and businesses and especially with the growing power of smartphones and other mobile devices. Artificial intelligence software is assisting people in most every discipline. The many functions of AI are considered by many to be threatening many human jobs across multiple industries.

A snapshot of the trend right now indicates:

  • With business models returning profit now, all indications are AI is here to stay
  • AI and Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing are being coupled with incredibly low cost cloud computing
  • No accepted protocol for security in AI.
  • Creators use a “generate and test” approach to creating functionality.
  • AI seems easier to deceive than current computer software.

Open questions decision-makers should track include:

  • Will job displacement be a crisis?
  • Will companies use AI for good?
  • Will there ever be a widely-accepted security framework for AI?
  • Can behavioral analytics enhance security?
