FORBES

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the talk of the world and it features prominently in predictions for 2019 (see here and here) and recent surveys by consulting firms and other observers of the tech scene. Here are the key findings:

Consumer adoption: “Smart speakers” lead the way to the AI-infused home of the future

Smart speakers (e.g., Amazon Echo and Google Home) will become the fastest-growing connected device category in history, with an installed base projected to surpass 250 million units by the end of 2019. With sales of 164 million units at an average selling price of $43 per unit, total smart speakers’ revenues will reach $7 billion, up 63% from 2018. (Deloitte)

Enterprise adoption: Timid first steps

47% of business executives say their companies have embedded at least one AI capability in their business processes and just 21% say their organizations have embedded AI in several parts of the business. 30% say they are piloting AI. (McKinsey)

20% of business executives say their companies will deploy AI across the business in 2019. (PwC)
