The Tip of the Iceberg: Artificial Intelligence in Business

The Tip of the Iceberg: Artificial Intelligence in Business

The number of businesses worldwide that have adopted Artificial Technology (AI) technologies stands at around 7,000 so far. That's a pretty high number considering that AI is a relatively new technology, with just a few years on the scene.

Now, take a wild guess how much that number is expected to grow over the next five years… Could the number grow to 20,000 businesses worldwide adopting AI by 2022? Or maybe it’s even bigger adoption, potentially reaching 100,000 businesses? 

The actual number is likely to shock you.

By 2022, or five years from now, the number of businesses adopting AI technologies worldwide is expected to reach some 900,000. 

That's right! Nearly a million businesses with AI technology likely to deliver significant efficiencies in cloud processing, storage capacity, machine learning algorithms to solve more problems faster, automation and innovation.

The way the landscape is changing, it is almost certain that businesses that choose to ignore AI applications will find themselves at a competitive disadvantage. Humans simply do not have the processing power to solve complex business problems as quickly and efficiently as AI ultimately will, and companies that use AI to test and change processes are likely to see their businesses operate more efficiently.

 

 

Many businesses are starting slow, which is an advisable way to proceed. In many cases, businesses are starting to implement AI at the margin, just to analyze their existing businesses for insights and potential improvement opportunities. Some of the world’s biggest and fastest growing companies, like Google, Netflix, PayPal, American Express, and Amazon have already deployed projects driven by machine learning. These big names have the luxury of having cash and resources available to test AI and not necessarily hinge anything on actual results, at least in the early stages. They are just ‘tinkering,’ you might say, with how AI might be able to fit into the existing business to make it better.

The bottom line here is fairly clear, however, at least in my view. And it’s that AI is almost certain to have an exponentially increasing role in how businesses operate.

It’s this very realization that led the founders at Tickeron to create a platform that brings AI to retail investors. As it stands right now, some of the biggest banks and trading houses are using AI to analyze enormous data sets for insights on how to trade and manage portfolios. Tickeron saw that as putting retail investors at a distinct disadvantage, just as businesses that ignore AI are likely to be at a significant disadvantage against their competitors.

If AI is likely to have such a big role in how we do business and invest, then it makes sense for investors to start ‘tinkering’ with AI to see if it can help you make better, more informed investment decisions. That can all happen here at tickeron.com.

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

The U.S. economy’s employment fell by -20.5 million in April. The coronavirus crisis led to unemployment rate soaring to 14.7% in the U.S, the highest rate in the Bureau of Labor Statistics-tracked series history that goes back to 1948. However, the figures were better compared to several economists'/analysts' forecasts of 22 million job losses and 16% unemployment rate.  Another unemployment measure that includes those who have stopped looking for work as well as those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also touched an all-time high of 22.8%.
