Media Alert

Trends Equity and Rethink Research Announce New Research Study
“Enterprise AI Adoption: An Executive Guide on the Commercial Impact of AI and Machine Learning in Vertical Industries”

October 6, 2016 – Trends Equity, Inc., producer of AI World and publisher of AI Trends, today announced it is has teamed up with Rethink Research to publish “Enterprise AI Adoption: An Executive Guide on the Commercial Impact of AI and Machine Learning in Vertical Industries”.

Enterprise AI Adoption: An Executive Guide is based on a global survey of enterprises and an expert analysis of the state of the enterprise AI market. The report provides business executives with a concise, digestible handbook of the essential issues they need to understand in order to consider the potential impact of AI on their business.

According to Eliot Weinman, president of Trends Equity and chair of AI World, “We have found that hundreds of global 2000 organizations already have strategic and tactical efforts underway to investigate the opportunities available in the AI market. AI and digital procurement efforts are being led by newly assigned senior executives in these businesses, often who report directly to the CEO. In many cases the intent is to have a direct presentation to the board of the company. If your organization recognizes that your management team needs to be equipped now with the knowledge and tools to understand how AI can affect your business, this report is essential.”

Report author, Caroline Gabriel, research director and co-founder of Rethink Research added, “The potential impact and benefits of using artificial intelligence technologies such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, predictive APIs and others are huge. McKinsey estimates the global economic impact of just one of the disruptive trends enabled by AI – automation of knowledge work – will be as great as $6.7 trillion by 2025. However, only some organizations are currently getting value from these technologies. Our research compares vertical market adoption in a multitude of industries, discusses the implementation phases that organizations are experiencing and discusses what impact it is having on their business.”

Trends Equity Announces New Research Study “Specialized Digital Assistants and Bots: Vendor Guide and Market Study”

Press Release

Trends Equity Announces New Research Study

“Specialized Digital Assistants and Bots: Vendor Guide and Market Study”

256-page report covers over 170 Intelligent Assistants & Bots and projects the market globally through 2020

August 16, 2016 – Trends Equity, Inc., producer of AI World and publisher of AI Trends, today announced it is has teamed up with TMA Associates to publish “Specialized Digital Assistants and Bots: Vendor Guide and Market Study“, a definitive vendor guide and market study of the digital assistants and Bot marketplace. The 256-page report on digital assistants, in addition to estimating the market by global region through 2020, discusses the resources available to companies that wish to create a digital assistant. Over 170 companies providing these resources are discussed in detail and categorized as to the resource they provide. More information can be found on aitrends.com/research-bots/

“Specialized Digital Assistants and Bots: Vendor Guide and Market Study” was written by the leading independent expert Dr. William Meisel, President of TMA Associates, and editor of LUI News, an industry newsletter covering the use of human language to communicate with digital systems.

According to Eliot Weinman, CEO, Trends Equity, Inc. and Chair, AI World, “Earlier this year we announced we were teaming up with Dr. Meisel to produce a half-day workshop at AI World on intelligent assistants and Bots. The workshop was developed for business and technology executives who want an in-depth analysis of today’s market landscape, insights on determining which applications are best used for intelligent assistants/Bots and what are the best tools, technologies and services to use for their particular implementation. Meisel, a veteran independent industry expert on intelligent assistants, has spent the last four months researching and writing the most comprehensive report on the intelligent assistant/Bot market to date. The intelligent assistant market is expected to boom in the coming years. Meisel has also built a sound financial model to predict the size of this market expansion. Any business interested in doing their own research on this market or that wishes to deploy a bot or digital assistant will find this report extremely valuable, and it will save them tens of thousands of dollars in manpower and resources.”

A digital assistant is a cloud-based application that communicates with an individual through “natural language” (the language we use to communicate with other humans, by voice or text). The assistant, like a talented human assistant, responds by providing requested information or accomplishing a requested task. One rapidly growing form of digital assistant, typically called a “bot,” is addressed by a natural-language text message from within a messaging application such as Facebook Messenger or Microsoft Skype.

Some general digital assistants, including Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google’s upcoming Assistant, try to help you with anything you want. Specialized digital assistants have a narrower goal, letting you interact with a single company or specific service. The specialized assistants can operate independently through a website, as a mobile application, by text message, over a phone connection, within a car, or in a particular environment such as a warehouse. The general digital assistants are increasingly able to contact a specialized assistant for help at a user’s request. Also, messaging applications are making it possible to contact “bots,” texting them as if they were simply one of your contacts.

The report provides separate estimates for digital assistants targeted at consumers and those used internally at companies to make the use of enterprise software more efficient. The Enterprise segment is expected to be about 17% of the market in 2016, dropping to 13% of the market in 2020 as consumer assistants expand rapidly.

“Digital assistants are increasingly becoming the new way companies and applications will interact with users, as the market estimates show,” Meisel said. “Every company must understand the options available to participate in this trend. The bulk of the report discusses 170 companies that can help them do so, with a guide to make efficient use of this information.”

The cost of this report is $1,950. The report can be purchased at aitrends.com/research-bots/. Buyers of the report will also receive special pricing to attend Dr. Meisel’s Workshop at AI World on Nov 7 in San Francisco – aiworldexpo.com/sessions/digital-assistants-bots-seminar/

William Meisel, Ph.D., president, TMA Associates (www.tmaa.com), is publisher and editor of LUI News (formerly Speech Strategy News, a paid-subscription monthly newsletter launched in 1993, and covering commercial applications of the Language User Interface), author of the 2013 book The Software Society, and a consultant on market and product opportunities created by the maturing of speech and natural language technology.

AI World Teams Up with TMA Associates to Produce a New Workshop “Building a Company or Application-Specific Bot”

In-depth Workshop to be presented at AI World

May 18, 2016 – Westboro, MA – Trends Equity today announced that it has teamed up with TMA Associates and will feature a half-day in-depth workshop on Bots at its AI World Conference & Expo on November 7, 2016 in San Francisco.  The new workshop is entitled “Building a Company or Application-Specific Bot” is focused on helping attendees determine which applications are best suited for Bots and natural-language digital assistants (voice or text), and what are the best tools, technologies and services to use for your particular implementation.

According to Eliot Weinman, CEO, Trends Equity and AI World conference chair, “Artificial intelligence, in the form of chat bots in messaging apps, and other forms of intelligent assistants have lately become the rage of the industry. Recent announcements by companies such as Microsoft and Facebook have drawn the attention of businesses globally in trying to understand what the state-of-the-technology is, and how to develop a business strategy for this potentially massive disruptive technology. With more than 100 vendors and technology providers offering a wide variety of options, the challenges to develop the right strategy are daunting.”

A key area enabled by advances in AI is natural language processing, conversing (in text or voice) with a digital system the way you might talk to a human assistant. Mobile personal assistants have made spoken natural language familiar to the general public, and recent initiatives by messaging services have drawn attention to text interaction in natural language with “bots.”

According to William Meisel, President, TMA Associates and workshop moderator, “Companies and online services must develop specialized digital assistants and bots to be part of this trend or be at a competitive disadvantage. These digital assistants will represent companies for activities such as customer service, technical support, information access, advertising, sales, and proactive notifications. Also, services and enterprise software will need a digital assistant as their “face” to users.”

The workshop is intended for company participants that want to understand:

  • the reality of developing natural-language digital assistants,
  • the resources available to help do so, and
  • trade-offs in varying approaches to such development.

 

The workshop will provide an intuitive comparison of differing technical approaches, with a focus on helping a company understand their options, ranging from fairly deep involvement in the process to simply specifying goals to professional service teams or consultants.

TRENDS EQUITY AND LUX RESEARCH ANNOUNCE AI WORLD CONFERENCE AND EXPO

Event focuses on “The Business and Technology of Artificial intelligence”

Trends Equity, Inc. and strategic research partner Lux Research, Inc. today announced AI World Conference and Expo, to be held November, 7–9, 2016 at the Hilton Parc 55, San Francisco. The conference and exposition is designed to enable global 2000 business executives learn from, and network with, the leaders of the applied AI industry.

According to Eliot Weinman, conference founder and CEO of Trends Equity, “The AI market promises to be one of the fastest growing business and technology markets over the next decade. Over the past few years we’ve seen dozens of AI companies quickly acquired by the likes of Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, IBM and others, and according to Venture Scanner, there are 930 global companies, across 13 categories in artificial intelligence that have raised $4.4 billion.”

Even though the definition of AI remains open, forecasters are trying to quantify AI in dollar terms:
• Market intelligence firm Tractica forecasts cumulative revenue of $43.5 billion during the ten-year period from 2015 through 2024,
• Market Research Store predicts AI revenues will be $40 billion in the single year of 2022. This report states that the U.S. currently represents the largest market, and the fastest growing segment is Expert Systems which are increasingly being used in aviation, defense and financial institutions.
• Reports and Reports believes the advertising and media, finance, and retail sectors will be the main drivers and that total market size will be just $5.05 billion in 2020.

“The wild range of these forecasts reflect AI’s broad applicability and potential, but also confusion, risk, and opportunity to form the future,” offers Mark Bünger, conference co-chair and VP of Research with Lux Research. “At AI World Conference and Expo we seek to separate the nonsense from the insights, the goldmines from the landmines, and the reality from the hype.”

“We’ve created a comprehensive 3-day program that includes more than 40 sessions and workshops, mentor opportunities and entrepreneurial pitches along with an exhibition showcasing leading AI innovators,” explains Mr. Weinman. In addition to assisting business leaders to gain a firm grasp on what AI can do to help their companies become more competitive, the objective of the event is also to act as a catalyst and facilitator for the many channels of the emerging AI ecosystem. “There’s still time to get involved with the conference and we invite all innovative users, solution providers, entrepreneurs, investors, and media and association partners to join us in advancing the AI industry.”
