Leading with Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things in the Business Age

In a world where business success depends largely on technological progress, organizations must keep up with the latest technology trends to stay ahead of the competition. This article discusses the role of two pivotal technologies that have been rapidly changing the way businesses are conducted today and will have an even greater influence in the future: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Artificial Intelligence is a disruptive technology like no other. The technology and applications are evolving at a rapid pace, as more and more companies take advantage of this exciting new field. The AI market is growing rapidly, with revenues expected to exceed $46 billion by 2025.

IoT & AI: How They Are Transforming the Business World

The future of the internet is in everything. IoT devices will be able to communicate with one another and the network through Artificial Intelligence, providing deeper insights into the data patterns and during the creation of a unique user experience. IoT platform tools for Artificial Intelligence incorporate AI analytics into their value proposition - Machine Learning is used to recognize patterns that can trigger an alert based on anomalies and utilize predictive analysis. Businesses are now using IoT devices, sensors, and data collection instruments to advance operational efficiency by 20X in comparison with conventional technology applications.

Predictive Maintenance with AI

There are many sectors in which unplanned downtime can have a huge impact. A few things that come to mind are the energy sector, manufacturing, and shipping. The combination of AI and IoT technology helps one achieve predictive maintenance. By using analytics and human insight when paired with AI, you can predict equipment failure before it even has time to operate correctly. This helps one get rid of unplanned downtime on the economic side of the equation. Since Artificial Intelligence understands patterns in data coming from machines, you can use this information to predict machine failure ahead of time so that you can correct it properly throughout your business operations. 

Solving Big Data Challenges with the Help of AI and IoT

Retail, automation, healthcare logistics, consumer goods, and public services all have something in common. They are industries that involve technology in some way or another. When it comes to advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), these industries stand to benefit tremendously from the application of such technologies because each sector has its specific areas that can be improved upon with the help of AI and IoT. One example: Machine Learning allows retailers to automate their online platform via dynamic algorithms that are helping them to make decisions based on past transactions and the likelihood of potential future behavior, thereby allowing them to provide a personalized shopping experience.

Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and Google Home are heavily reliant on Machine Learning to improve their work and continue to support and assist people in their daily lives. As we enter a new age where technology continues to advance at an accelerated rate, businesses must remember not to neglect their cybersecurity or fail to employ secure online payment systems such as those relying on UPI (Unified Payments Interface). It's also critical that we don't lose sight of the potential for leveraging AI technologies in areas such as predictive analytics - especially since it could save countless hours for companies by improving inventory management through smart predictions derived from big data.     

Cost & Infrastructure 

Recent survey findings indicate that manufacturing, smart cars, smart homes, and sports IoT apps are the most costly types of IoT ventures. At the same time, they are in high demand and could bring you significant profits. The average cost of developing an IoT app ranges from $10K to $50K. 
Road Ahead

If we’ve learned one thing, it’s that the future is here and it is changing at a very rapid pace! The merging of AI and IoT is doing more than just disrupting industries; they’re breaking down the wall that separates science fiction from reality. Smart homes, automobiles, factories, and manufacturing plants are some of the hottest industries to start a company in. However, as an entrepreneur, you might be disproportionately concerned about the risks involved with IoT development. No matter what sector your IoT startup focuses on, there will always be challenges at hand. For example, one of the biggest IoT sectors is healthcare. The health industry is notoriously bad at adopting new technology and can require massive payoffs before any ROI can be seen.
