Artificial intelligence is no more a buzzword. Businesses are starting to realize the benefits and are keen to adopt. Forrester, in a new report, “Predictions 2017: Artificial Intelligence Will Drive The Insights Revolution”, predicts that there will be a 300% increase in investment in artificial intelligence in 2017 compared to 2016. The combination of IOT, AI, and big data technologies will help businesses to overcome difficulties in sophisticated data mining and achieve deeper business insights. Another area of AI that is fast developing is deep reinforcement learning. Alpha Go’s historic win against Lee Sedol, one of the greatest go player all time, marks the beginning of an era where machines capable of reinforcement learning will become beneficial in real-world scenarios. In 2017, we are likely to see reinforcement learning techniques becoming prominent in areas such as automated driving and industrial robotics. 2017 will also see AI becoming more accessible and affordable for businesses.

As AI become widely available, C-suite and business leaders will have to choose the right kind of technology and solution providers for their business. To help them in this process EV presents the list of ‘EV 20 Innovative AI solution providers’. A distinguished panel of CEOs, CTOs, Investors, Industry experts and EVs editorial team has come together to select top AI solutions providers from over a thousand companies. The companies in this list show how technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, and Cognitive computing can be used to solve real-world problems. We hope this will help you to understand these technologies more comprehensively and take informed decisions about deploying them in your business
