The Future of AI and the Impact It Will Have on Enterprise

Updated on October 10, 2018

Artificial intelligence is slowly but surely entering every single part of the modern-day workplace, and the biggest achievements are yet to be witnessed. This technology is among humans for almost a hundred years, but it wasn’t developed as it deserves. Luckily, the modern technology era brought this topic once again among the biggest investors, and the research is continued. The text below will introduce you to the history of AI, recent implementations and future prospects.

The rise of AI


While ideas about artificial intelligence first appeared in antiquity, with myths, the first practical step toward electronic brain was made during the 1940s. This achievement inspired early computer scientists in Dartmouth College, where they’ve held the first AI dedicated workshop. The scientists who attended this event in 1956. became pioneers in this field and lead the future research.

AI came a long way since the time MIT scientists back in 1960 used advances in “Cognitive Simulation” to build chess-playing algorithm in order to simulate human intellectual ability, but the technology is still in early stage of development. It is in 2018 when we should see some of the advancements going beyond the research, from autonomous drones to AI-powered medical diagnostics, as companies bring these solutions to market. The interest in AI development dramatically changed during the last few years and some impacts on enterprise are already visible.

Chance for young AI professionals


According to Alex Jaimes, head of DigitalOcean and R&D, larger companies will soon start hiring a substantial number of AI professionals who will help to integrate new technologies into the company’s existing strategy and products. This means that new jobs opportunities will emerge, so experts in math, algorithms, data science, and AI technique will have a bright future. Development of AI will most certainly create other job positions and it’s yet to be seen which ones. All in all, computers won’t steal our jobs, since it looks like they’ll help us with creating new ones.

AI usage in cybersecurity


One of the most important impacts that AI will have on the enterprise is made possible thanks to data deception technology which will help big systems fight against sophisticated hackers. Columbia University professor and Allure Security CTO, Salvatore J. Stolfo, reminds cybersecurity professionals that these new AI prevention technologies will win the battle against hackers with its automated products. These solutions are able to detect, analyze and defend against dangerous attacks and will do that proactively. This technology has been developed as a combination of human and artificial intelligence, and it is capable of constantly learning and improving its defending solutions.

AI will improve sales and marketing


Sales and marketing teams all over the world should be very happy because of AI’s development since these areas of the enterprise will be under the biggest impact of this revolutionary technology. Marketers will finally be able to concentrate just on the creative part of their job since AI will take care of all repetitive and customer-facing tasks. This will not only lead to better marketing solutions but will also improve the customer experience within these companies. AI will help sales professionals to better personalize messages to customers since it can gather big chunks of relevant data by tracking their behavior. Of course, some professionals doubt that AI will be able to replace humans when it comes to customer relations, and this will be settled in not more than a few years when we’ll know who’s doing the better job.

AI detecting diseases


During the short life of AI, its capability of detecting diseases improved a lot. For example, AI can enable the review and translation of mammograms 30 times faster than just a few years ago, and its accuracy reached the fascinating 99%. These achievements are reducing the need for unnecessary biopsies, which will directly impact the lives of patients in a very positive way. Full possibilities of AI when it comes to medicine will be known in approximately 15 years since its development in this area just started.

AI is not ready to transform the enterprise


While some AI-based products are already being used by millions of people, it looks like the full transformation of the enterprise is not possible at the moment. Developments considering personal assistants, cybersecurity, and analyzing big data are influencing the market, but the full potential for business is yet to be reached. A lot of companies are not ready to switch to this new technology and they’ll need some time to adjust. The bigger the company, the more time it will need for implementing AI to its operations.

Final thoughts


As suggested above, it is highly unlikely that AI will take our jobs. It looks like it will create new ones since the companies using this technology will need humans behind its development. Supercomputers are one of the greatest achievements of modern civilization and we should use them wisely and deliberately. AI will help us become better versions of ourselves by increasing productivity, efficiency, morale and intellect.
