Some companies have realized that AI is the “next big thing”, playing an essential role in our technological future, Here is a list of my top 10 companies that have invested heavily in AI.
Trade giant Amazon has invested resources in consumer-facing AI and applications for organizations and their programs.The organization's AI language assistant, Alexa, has been integrated into its series of echo speakers and has a reputation around the world. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a set of pre-trained AI machine learning programs and services for organizations and has yet to be as successful.
Perhaps the largest and most important AI company on this list is also the most obvious. Google acquired many artificial intelligence start-ups. There's also the TensorFlow from Google's machine system and the Tensor AI chip project underway for machine learning on devices.
GauGAN, which owes its name to the impressionist painter Paul Gauguin, is a deep learning model that works like an AI brush, which can quickly convert text descriptions, graffiti or basic representations into realistic, professional-quality images. Art directors and concept artists from leading movie studios and video game organizations are using GauGAN to prototype ideas and make rapid improvements to the digital landscape. Computer scientists can also use these tools to create a virtual universe to train self-driving cars.
Intel is also buying artificial intelligence companies and has acquired Nervana and Movidius and some smaller AI startups. Nervana allows companies to develop specific deep learning software, while Movidius was founded to introduce AI applications to low-performing devices. Intel is also working with Microsoft to provide AI acceleration for the Bing search engine.
Facebook's AI research group is called FAIR, which focuses on advancing the field of machine intelligence and developing new technologies to provide individuals with better ways to communicate.
Since the 1950s, the multinational technology company IBM has been active in AI. The company participated in the birth of artificial intelligence and is firmly committed to this day. IBM and Watson jointly created a machine learning platform that can integrate AI into business processes, such as building chatbots for customer support.
Microsoft is involved in artificial intelligence for both consumers and businesses. Microsoft's digital AI assistant, Cortana, is competing directly with Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant. Artificial intelligence functions are an important part of the company's Azure cloud service, which provides chatbots and machine learning services to some well-known people in the company.
This nonprofit research group is committed to developing AI for all of humanity and has managed to maintain its open source mindset, despite raising large sums of money through investments and acquisitions. At the moment, some well-known people are in the AI field work at OpenAI, including deep learning specialist Ilya Sutskever. Sponsors include Microsoft, Amazon and Elon Musk.
Qualcomm Snapdragons supports some of the most popular smartphones on the market. If you are interested in AI for smartphones, you should pay attention to Qualcomm. For example, AI plays a vital role on the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. The chip uses a signal processor for AI voice, audio and image functions.
The Australian company is developing machine learning methods for visual processing on the web and mobile devices, and Twitter may improve its system in the future to recommend specific tweets on the timeline of users using AI.
