Its products are built on its Cortex augmented intelligence platform for companies to design, development, delivery, and manage enterprise-grade AI systems. It also has an AI marketplace, an online AI collaboration system for business experts, researchers, data scientists, and developers to solve problems.
  • Google

    Google
    Google, clearly a leader in AI, is on a massive AI acquisition binge, having acquired many AI startups in recent years. Google is deeply invested in furthering artificial intelligence capabilities. Rather than selling a product to the market, Google’s AI efforts are all oriented toward improving its services. It has a major software project in TensorFlow as well as its own Tensor AI chip project.
  • IBM

    IBM
    IBM has been a leader in the field of artificial intelligence since the 1950s. Its efforts these days are around IBM Watson, such as a AI-based cognitive service, AI software as a service, and scale-out systems designed for delivering cloud-based analytics and AI services. It too has been acquisitive, purchasing AI startups in recent years.
  • Iris AI

    Iris AI
    Iris AI helps researchers sort through scientific work and research to find the relevant information, and as it is used, it learns how to make better searchers. Since its launch, countless people have tried the service, some becoming regular users. It recently released Iris.ai 4.0, which adds the Focus tool, an intelligent mechanism to refine and collate a reading list of research literature, cutting out a huge amount of manual effort.
  • Microsoft

    Microsoft
    Microsoft has a mix of consumer-facing and business/IT AI projects. On the consumer side it has Cortana, the digital assistant that comes with Windows and now is available for smartphones other than Windows Phone and the chatbot Zo that talks like a teenager. On its Azure cloud service, Microsoft has AI services such as bot services, machine learning and cognitive services.
  • OpenAI

    OpenAI
    OpenAI is a non-profit research firm that operates under an open source type of model to allow other institutions and researchers to freely collaborate, making its patents and research open to the public. The founders say they are motivated in part by concerns about existential risk from artificial general intelligence.
  • Sherpa

    Sherpa
    Sherpa is a virtual personal assistant that works with a user’s entire array of devices, inferring and predicting their needs that allow the assistant to learn about the users and anticipate their needs before they ask. It works with a number of consumer devices and any accessory that could use some kind of intelligence.
  • ViSenze

    ViSenze
    ViSenze’s artificial intelligence visual recognition technology works by recommending visually similar items to users when shopping online. Its advanced visual search and image recognition solutions to help businesses in eCommerce, mCommerce and online advertising by recommending visually similar items to online shoppers.

Artificial intelligence has grown exponentially in the last two to three years, with scores of of AI startups and major AI initiatives by big name firms alike. Not to mention the dozens of AI software companies working on machine learning, deep learning and all forms of automation.

AI is driving significant investment from venture capitalist firms, giant firms like Microsoft and Google, academic research, and job openings across a multitude of sectors. All of this is documented in the AI Index, produced by Stanford University's Human-Centered AI Institute.

Consulting giant Accenture believes AI has the potential to boost rates of profitability by an average of 38 percentage points and could lead to an economic boost of US$14 trillion in additional gross value added (GVA) by 2035. In truth, artificial intelligence holds a plethora of possibilities – and risks. “It will have a huge economic impact but also change society, and it's hard to make strong predictions, but clearly job markets will be affected,” said Yoshua Bengio, a professor at the University of Montreal, and head of the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms.
