Advanced machine learning and deep learning has been identified by Gartner as one of the top 10 strategic technology trends in 2016. But maybe even more importantly advanced machine learning such as deep learning is at the confluence of other cited strategic technology trends such as “Autonomous Agents and Things”, “Internet of Things” and “Advanced System Architecture”. Developments in either of these fields is going to depend heavily on advanced machine learning techniques. On the other hand advancements in e.g. “Advanced System Architecture” such as more common application of systems including FPGAs (Field-Programmable Gate Arrays) will allow for even more widespread employment of deep learning methodology in applications where power consumption of current generation GPUs is prohibitive. So there is all reason to expect that deep artificial intelligence is going to permeate and shape an ever bigger part of products and services that our society is going to consume in the future.
