FREMONT, CA: Artificial intelligence (AI) has changed the face of the technological landscape in Silicon Valley. The incorporation of AI with cloud computing technology is enabling enterprises to gather, store, and process vast troves of data. AI is affecting processes in multiple sectors, including business and banking. AI is a technology that is benefiting the customers as much as the corporate sector.

The global success of AI technology has spurred the emergence of new AI startups. However, not all have succeeded in extracting value from the robust technology. For it to work, enterprises must target the processes that would most benefit from AI integration and incorporate in strategized steps.

Even though AI systems require constant improvement, one does have to program it to work. It enables enterprises to process data at a much faster rate and to detect patterns that would be missed by humans. Since almost every sector is suffused with data, the applications of AI technology are many.

The change introduced by AI in Silicon Valley has created a wave of opportunities in Silicon Valley.

AI empowers enterprises to utilize their computing resources more efficiently. Several startups in Silicon Valley are incorporating AI-based architecture to automate their processes.

AI chip and hardware developers are aiming to integrate their robust solutions into the infrastructure of global organizations and power their AI applications. The inception of cloud vendors has enabled seamless hosting of the applications on the cloud. AI algorithmic and cognitive capabilities have enabled the development of vision recognition, speech technology, and deep learning, and these power the predictive models.

Technology is continually evolving. Although AI has not reached perfection, it has blazed the trail for innovations in Silicon Valley, paving the way for new startups. Almost every technological organization in the world has incorporated AI into their operations, or are aspiring to do so, especially those seeking to increase revenues, drive efficiency, and establish a firm foot in the marketplace.
