Globally, a new era of rapidly developing and interconnected technologies that combine engineering, computer algorithms, and culture is already beginning. The basic way we live, work, and connect will alter because of the digital transformation or convergence we will experience in the next years.
More remarkably, the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-based computers in the next century may alter how we relate to ourselves.
The digital ecosystem’s networked computer components, which are made possible by machine learning and artificial intelligence, will have a significant impact on practically every sector of the economy. These integrated AI and computing capabilities could pave the way for new frontiers in fields as diverse as genetic engineering, augmented reality, robotics, renewable energy, big data, and more.
Three important verticals in this digital transformation are already being impacted by AI: 1) Healthcare, 2) Cybersecurity, and 3) Communications.
Artificial intelligence: What is it?
AI is a “technology that appears to emulate human performance typically by learning, coming to conclusions, seeming to understand complex content, engaging in natural dialogs with people, enhancing human cognitive performance, or replacing people on execution of non-routine tasks,” according to Gartner.
