Our sector-wide research suggests that natural language processing (NLP) is one of the more common AI approaches in banking AI use-cases today. Sentiment analysis is a capability of NLP which involves the determining whether a segment of open-ended natural language text (which can be transcribed from audio) is positive, negative, or neutral towards the topic being discussed.
Digitally-native eCommerce businesses are used to working with their customer data in order to write copy for marketing campaigns, run PPC ads, calculate customer lifetime value, and make decisions based on core metrics within CRM dashboards.
Investment in AI by banks and financial institutions for risk-related functions such as fraud and cybersecurity, compliance, and financing and loans has grown dramatically in the last half-decade compared to customer-facing functions.
Banks are in one of the best positions for leveraging AI in the coming years because the largest banks have massive volumes of historical data on customers and transactions that can be fed into machine learning algorithms. We recently completed our Emerj AI in Banking Vendor Scorecard and Capability Map in which we explored which AI capabilities banks were taking advantage of the most and which they might be able to leverage in the future.
Life sciences companies are likely to begin experimenting further with AI in their workflows in the coming years, but they face challenges in AI adoption due to strict regulations. Machine learning has a "black box" problem, meaning that it's in many cases impossible to know how a machine learning algorithm comes to its conclusions.
Artificial intelligence is changing the way healthcare networks do business and physicians perform their routine activities from medical transcription to robot-assisted surgery. Although the more mature use-cases for AI in healthcare are those built on algorithms that have applications in various other industries (namely white-collar automation), we believe that in the coming three to five years, AI solutions for healthcare will become increasingly specialized to individual use-cases.
The International Energy Agency’s latest annual gas market report, Gas 2018, estimated that global gas demand could reach more than 4,100 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2023. This is an increase from 3,740 bcm in 2017. Greater gas demands mean more oil rigs, and the machines on these rigs break down.
