The past few years have seen an explosion of technology and artificial intelligence. In general, the world is going through a paradigm shift as digital marketing is becoming more and more prevalent. More importantly, it’s continually getting to be better at it as per information technology blog. Artificial intelligence has long been predicted to replace human beings as we know them in all aspects of life, with AI surpassing its human counterparts in many ways already. So what’s so interesting about AI? It can access huge amounts of data in seconds which give businesses remarkable insights into their consumers that would be impossible for humans to do. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest breakthroughs in AI and digital marketing that are likely to happen in the next 10 years – or sooner.
Data is everywhere, and if you want it, it’s yours. Usually this means you have to download a software package or spend a few thousand dollars on a massive server, but now data can be opened up by simply using your smartphone. Artificial intelligence is already starting to power some of our most popular apps like Google Now and Facebook Messenger. In a few years, we may see artificial intelligence start powering our most important apps on the internet like Facebook itself (think messaging).
It’s possible that the first true artificial intelligence will be created on New Year’s Eve. It has already been predicted that self-driving cars, smart drones and smart medical implants will all be considered human intelligences in the next decade. A truly intelligent system will have no need for a human interface.
With advancements in technology, it’s getting easier for AI to work around the intricate problems in data processing and analysis. For example, taking millions of photos from Instagram or videos from YouTube would take some incredible amounts of computational power now. But by 2015, these technologies will be made available to support and accelerate AI research – making massive leaps like these possible much sooner than expected.
Bots are getting smarter, and they’re likely to start taking humans’ jobs in a few years. Robots like the Roomba vacuum cleaner can already clean your house without you even having to get out of bed. Bots are becoming more and more capable as self-learning algorithms allow them to develop their own unique personalities that can not only navigate complex environments but also develop their own interests and knowledge.
By the start of the 2020s, it’s likely that AI will integrate artificial intelligence into all aspects of life. Even though it won’t represent a threat for humans today, it’s most certainly going to become one by then in all sectors of business (and even consumer products). By this time it will start learning on its own, developing new skills and improving its own algorithms.
Developments in Machine Learning are going to change the way businesses are run in the next 10 years. The more data businesses have to analyze, the smarter their machines get. With advancements in technology, it’s getting easier for AI to work around the intricate problems in data processing and analysis. This will allow for intelligent machines that can learn from their past experiences – ultimately allowing them to take humans’ jobs away from them completely.
The line between business intelligence and artificial intelligence is starting to blur now with services like IBM Watson Analytics that look at consumer behavior and provide actionable recommendations based on what customers want or need.
