“Top takeaways from my interviews with experts from organizations offering AI products and services:
• AI is too big for any single device or system
• AI is a distributed phenomenon
• AI will deliver value to users through devices, but the heavy lifting will be performed in the cloud
• AI is a two-way street, with information passed back and forth between local devices and remote systems
• AI apps and interfaces will be designed and engineered increasingly for nontechnical users
• Companies will incorporate AI capabilities into new products and services routinely
• A new generation of AI-enriched products and services will be connected and supported through the cloud
• AI in the cloud will become a standard combination, like peanut butter and jelly”
