• AI and machine learning have reached a critical upturn point and will further increasingly augment and extend virtually every technology enabled service, thing or application. Creating intelligent systems that learn, adapt and efficiently actrat her than simply execute predefined instructions is primarily the battleground for technology vendors. As the she  volume of data generated on a daily basis creates a unique challenge, there is a need to develop new  methods of analysis that focuses on the development of new algorithms and methods to improve performance. Initially, organizations deployed machine learning to surface insights, but soon these tools evolved to support decision making based on those insights. In order to incorporate ML surfaced insights into day-to-day workflows and processes, enterprise AI solutions often include managed solutions onthe edge of product offerings that reduce complexity for customers and ensure action-orientation. Thus, 2017 will continue to witness the growing commercialization of Artificial Intelligence focused around robotics, cars, and other applications in enterprises as well. As AI and machine learning capabilities are being included in more and more platforms and software, they serve enterprises in creating a competitive advantage within their respective industries. AI and machine learning (including technologies such as deep learning, neural networks and NPL) encompass advanced systems that understand, learn, predict, adapt and potentially operate autonomously. The consolidation of parallel processing power, advanced algorithms and massive data sets to feed the algorithms has unleashed this new era. Well acquainted with this scenario, CIO Review India presents a list of “20 Most Promising Artificial Intelligence Solution Providers”. Being closely scrutinized by a distinct panel of judges including CEOs, CIOs, CXO, analysts and CIO Review editorial board, we believe these solution vendors can help your organization democratizing access to AI enabling smaller businesses, startups and entrepreneurs to experiment with applied AI and design innovations.
