We want to present you with its updated version, which includes AI technologies that you must also take into account for this year.

We hope you will be inspired to join 62% of the companies that have already been driving their AI businesses this 2018.

1. Generation of natural language

The generation of natural language is a sub-discipline of AI that converts data into text, which allows computers to communicate ideas with impressive accuracy.

Currently, it is used in customer service to generate reports and market summaries, and is offered by companies such as Attivio, Automated Insights, Cambridge Semantics, Digital Reasoning, Lucidworks, Narrative Science, Yseop and SAS.

2. Speech recognition

Siri is just one of the systems that, nowadays, can understand what you say to them.

Every day, more and more systems are created that can transcribe human language, reaching hundreds of thousands through interactive voice response systems and mobile applications.

3. Virtual agents

A virtual agent is nothing more than a computer agent or a program capable of interacting with humans.

And yes, chatbots are a great example. Virtual agents are currently being used for customer service and support, as well as smart home managers.

Some of the companies that provide virtual agents include Amazon, Apple, Artificial Solutions, Assist AI, Creative Virtual, Google, IBM, IPsoft, Microsoft and Satisfi.

4. Content Creation

Content creation now includes any type of material a person adds to the online world, be they videos, ads, blog posts, white papers, infographics or other visual or written resources. Here you can know how Ai technology creates contents!

Brands like USA Today, Hearst and CBS, are already using IA to generate their content.

Wibbitz is a great example of a solution in this field, since it is a SaaS tool that uses AI to help editors create videos from written content in just a matter of minutes. Or, also Wordsmith, a tool created by Automated Insights, which applies PLN (Natural Language Processing) to generate news based on general data.

5. Optimized hardware with AI

The AI technology makes the hardware is much friendlier.

Through new graphic and central processing units, and processing devices specifically designed and structured to execute AI-oriented tasks.

And if you have not seen them yet, you should expect an imminent acceptance of silicon integrated circuits optimized by IA that can be inserted directly into your portable devices and, eventually, anywhere else.

You can access these technologies through Alluviate, Cray, Google, IBM, Intel and Nvidia.

6. Decision Making

Smart machines are able to introduce rules and logic to artificial intelligence systems so you can use them for initial configuration or training, continuous maintenance and optimization.

Decision making has already been incorporated into a variety of corporate applications to assist and make decisions automatically, making your business as profitable as possible.

Take a look at Advanced Systems Concepts, Informatica, Maana, Pegasystems and UiPath to know the options available within this category.

7. Biometrics
This technology can identify, measure and analyze human behavior and the physical aspects of body structure and shape.

It allows more natural interactions between humans and machines, including interactions related to the recognition of touch, images, voice and body language, which is why it is extremely important in the field of market research.

Biometric companies like 3VR, Affectiva, Agnitio, FaceFirst, Sensory, Synqera and Tahzoo work hard to develop this area.
