TechDogs-"Top Trends 2023 – Artificial Intelligence"
What’s more common than seeing a Burger King next to a McDonald’s or finding a “stupid GAP on every street corner” (Yes Joey, it’s literally everywhere!)? It’s finding applications, tools and platforms powered by Artificial Intelligence – from finance to retail to rewriting content in the style of Shakespeare! If it’s not AI-powered, it’s not a new technology!

For the unacquainted, Artificial Intelligence or AI is a technology that makes it possible to replicate (or simulate) intelligent human behavior, such as analyzing information, making decisions or replying to queries. However, AI has recently found applications in tasks that cannot be done by humans (we found it surprising too!). Needless to say, every business today is investing in AI, in some form or the other.  

As a matter of fact, research shows roughly 97 million people will be working in AI-related fields by 2025. Naturally, businesses and employees alike need to know about the latest developments and use cases in the world of Artificial Intelligence – after all, no one is a know-it-all AI robot!

We bet you too want to keep up with the ever-evolving world of AI. Last year, we highlighted AI trends such as language modeling, cybersecurity integrations and contactless services. To keep you updated this year, we have put together the top 5 Artificial Intelligence Trends that are expected to dominate in 2023!

TechDogs-"Trend 1: AI Will Intersect With IoT To Form AIoT"-A Meme About AI Integrating With IoT
The Internet of Things is being used by businesses to reduce operational inefficiencies and enhance business revenue. It uses smart sensors and devices that exchange information over the Internet, allowing businesses to make instant decisions and respond to situations in real time. However, we expect IoT devices to become smarter and more secure through integration with Artificial Intelligence this year.

According to a study published by Gartner, by the end of 2022 more than 80% of Internet of Things projects will integrate Artificial Intelligence to create AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things). The number of devices connected to the Internet will skyrocket in 2023 to help businesses gather and analyze data. However, combining with AI technologies will help them move one step ahead and provide insights in real time. AIoT will quickly acquire data to analyze patterns/trends to detect anomalies. AIoT essentially applies AI algorithms to data that is locally captured on IoT devices. This precludes the need to process the data separately, saving time and costs, as well as providing real-time analytics and monitoring. #BeSmartWithAIoT

The data can be sourced from various intelligent IoT sensors (temperature, pressure, humidity, computer vision, etc.). This intersection between AI and loT will be leveraged in applications such as smart homes, smart grids or intelligent wearable devices as it will allow them to automatically perform the required actions by reacting to the insights from sensor data.

TechDogs' Opinion: Two of the most significant technologies of the 2020s are combined in AIoT. Yet, the combination of these technologies was inevitable given their operations. AIoT will help businesses create more efficient IoT operations, improve human-machine interactions and enhance data management and analytics. Moreover, the performance of IoT applications, such as transport infrastructure monitoring and manufacturing robots will improve as AIoT will react to sensor data instantly. It will also be used to monitor, analyze and manage traffic movements in congested areas. We expect to see decision-making be offloaded to AIoT in several real-world use cases.

TechDogs-"Trend 3: New-Age Workforces Will Be Driven By Augmented Intelligence"-A Terminator Meme Showing Businesses Using Augmented Intelligence To Help Humans
We’re used to seeing movies that depict Artificial Intelligence robots being the bad guys and trying to wipe out humans. Hope we don’t need to remind you of Skynet from the Terminator franchise! However, the same movie also shows the T-800 Terminator helping John Connor, the leader of the Human Resistance – which is related to our next trend. This year, businesses will invest in Augmented Intelligence, a human-centered collaboration model, where people and Artificial Intelligence cooperate to create innovative experiences and improve the AI’s cognitive performance, including learning, decision-making, etc.

This trend aims to combine Artificial Intelligence applications and human workforces to enhance business productivity. According to Gartner, by 2023, roughly 40% of infrastructure and operations teams will be automating work using Augmented Intelligence to achieve increased productivity. As a result of this trend, most of the complex and painstaking tasks will be handled by AI, assisting human workers in achieving higher efficiency and productivity.

Augmented Intelligence strategies will enable businesses to quickly collect, analyze and act on business information. The AI algorithms seamlessly analyze and structure the data collected from various sources into more useable formats, so humans can make decisions quickly. This enables the workforce to get a complete picture of the information in an instant; be it customer data, transactional data, etc. This will boost productivity across domains such as financial services, healthcare, travel, eCommerce, etc. this year. The role of AI-based Augmented Intelligence will be to serve as a 24/7 assistant to human workers.

TechDogs' Opinion: The use of technologies to augment traditional processes is not a recent trend. However, Augmented Intelligence aims to push the limits of human-machine interaction. In most sectors, adoption is already in progress. For instance, AI-driven process automation bots are helping fill out forms more quickly by anticipating the next values based on the values entered so far. Augmented Intelligence will soon stop being an additional functionality and start becoming a requirement for businesses. Open-source platforms are also being used to create Augmented Intelligence for individuals. For instance, it will assist content creators and influencers in coming up with ideas for new projects based on current and predicted trends.

We expect companies to rely on AI-based process optimization as they will offer significant improvement over process mining.

Imagine a complex system like the T-800 Terminator. While process mining will allow you to understand all the nitty-gritty details of its workflows and logic, AI-based process discovery will illustrate processes that can be automated to streamline critical functions and create a better T-800 (or do we mean T-1000?). This Artificial Intelligence model will have a wider range to track activity from mouse clicks for specific purposes to the timestamps of when files, documents, web pages, etc. were opened. This will help businesses get a much better picture of the enterprise and allow them to automate processes for enhanced efficiency. AI-driven process discovery will transform how businesses identify and represent their business processes, leading to more relevant automation of critical operations.

TechDogs' Opinion: Using AI-based approaches will enable businesses to automate and streamline critical components or steps in a workflow to improve overall efficiency as well as ROI. It will act as an ideal blueprint for businesses looking to automate or redesign business processes. Organizations will also benefit from this AI application by discovering new process flows that can lead to higher business revenue, lower costs and reduced errors. Artificial Intelligence will not just automate workflows but help create intelligent process discovery that can iteratively improve processes till they achieve the highest performance. How do you think they designed the T-1000, huh?
