AI and Future Enterprise
In Future Enterprise - the Intelligent Enterprise Revolution, futurist David Tow discusses the state of artificial intelligence in relation to e-commerce and global competitiveness. Tow lists the most promising AI trends as evolutionary or genetic algorithms, bayesian networks, fuzzy logic, swarm intelligence, neural networks, and intelligent agents.
Tow cites four major trends which are now emerging in relation to AI and the intelligent enterprise revolution:
1. AI is being used more frequently in e-commerce to achieve higher quality decision outcomes.
2. AI is moving up the decision chain to strategic and senior management levels.
3. AI techniques are being linked and used in more powerful combinations.
4. AI is beginning to leverage web intelligence from social networks, search services, and semantic applications.
See his article for more details and for his predictions on future trends. There is also an interesting analysis of Tow's ideas on the Genetic Argonaut.
