The year of artificial intelligence | Hurriyet Daily News - Opinion

"This is the second and the last part of the miniseries I write ahead of 2018." summarizes Ersu Ablak, Co-Founder at Unluden Medya A.Ş.

Since any article about predictions will not be completed without Gartner Trends Outlook, today I will write mainly about Gartner Top 10 strategic Technology Trends for 2018. Kasey Panetta writes in his report: “Artificial intelligence, immersive experiences, digital twins, event-thinking and continuous adaptive security create a foundation for the next generation of digital business models and ecosystems.”

Everything will be intelligent and everything will be connected, creating a mesh. Gartner calls the entwining of people, devices, content and services the intelligent digital mesh. It’s enabled by digital models, business platforms and a rich, intelligent set of services to support digital business.

Intelligent: How AI is seeping into virtually every technology and with a defined, well-scoped focus can allow more dynamic, flexible and potentially autonomous systems.

Digital: Blending the virtual and real worlds to create an immersive digitally enhanced and connected environment.

Mesh: The connections between an expanding set of people, business, devices, content and services to deliver digital outcomes.

The ability to use AI to enhance decision making, reinvent business models and ecosystems, and remake the customer experience will drive the payoff for digital initiatives through 2025.

The seamless integration of AI to every kind of software will enable few frontiers in business. Over the next few years every app, application and service will incorporate AI at some level. AI will run unobtrusively in the background of many familiar application categories while giving rise to entirely new ones.

These changes in software will in turn bring intelligent things. Intelligent things use AI and machine learning to interact in a more intelligent way with people and surroundings. Some intelligent things wouldn’t exist without AI, but others are existing things (i.e. a camera) that AI makes intelligent (i.e. a smart camera.)...

Ersu Ablak writes in the end of his article, "In short, get ready. In 2018 we will see real applications of AI everywhere."
