Blockchain isn’t the only new wave of technology that’s transforming the world we live in: artificial intelligence (AI) is also taking charge as a revolutionary industry in a big, big way.
A Research and Markets report called “Global Artificial Intelligence Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2017 to 2025” indicates the artificial intelligence sector was worth $1.36 billion just two years ago (2016), and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 52 percent between 2017 and 2025. According to the report, 2016 was a significant year for the industry as it marked the year AI officially became an evolving market.
