AI is still in its infancy, despite the R&D effort that has been expended on it over the years, and in a decade’s time today’s “state of the art” will seem rudimentary and simplistic. Therefore, when looking at potential winners in this theme, it is as important to gauge their ability to innovate over the long-term as it is to evaluate the current state of their AI offerings.
Leading the way with the development of AI technologies are the global technology giants – Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and IBM. Their strength is derived from a combination of factors, including access to huge datasets, essential for training AI systems, and significant amounts of computing power. Over the next few years, these US-headquartered companies will face increasing competition from China’s tech powerhouses, including Baidu and Alibaba.
