One starting in the mid 1970s and another in the late 1980's There were very clear reasons for the last two AI Winters, but most of the technical and cost issues are gone. The wild card is how humans accept AI this time around. My bet is against another brutal winter. This does not mean there won't be cold snaps, but a 15-20 year freeze out doesn't seem likely now.The First AI Winter: It was caused by a…

Source: Aragon Research By Jim Sinur Artificial Intelligence can be leveraged quickly for business strategy by seeking out important patterns inside and outside an organization, assisting with strategic moves, and suggesting the proper actions to take – whether that is taking advantage of a situation or avoiding a potential risk. To accomplish this, AI finds the patterns of interest, points out viable alternatives, and suggests courses of action in a significantly compressed time period. AI finds the…

by Jim Sinur It’s a given that the number of devices are exploding and the signals, events, and patterns coming from these devices are just overwhelming. Responding quickly to all of these devices and their signals is the key to digital success. Imagine what you could do if you put the intelligence closer and even inside of these devices? Moving AI to the edge will be a major movement starting in 2017. What might this intelligence help? Here is my take on the opportunities to augment management in the…
