TAIPEI (Taiwan News)–Market hype and growing interest in artificial intelligence (AL)
are pushing established software vendors to introduce AI into their product strategy, creating considerable confusion in the process, according to Gartner, Inc.
Analysts predict that by 2020, AI technologies will be virtually pervasive in almost every new software product and service, according to Gartner.
The term “artificial intelligence” was not in the top 100 search terms on gartner.com In January 2016, according to Gartner.
