AI Companies in the News; Gopher Protocol Inc., CEVA, Nuance Communications, Baidu

POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwired - January 09, 2018) - Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including Artificial Intelligence (AI) reports on investing trends in AI in 2017 and moving forward into a future where AI will be a must-have for tech companies.

According to Gartner, Inc., "Analysts predict that by 2020, AI technologies will be virtually pervasive in almost every new software product and service."

In January 2016, the term "artificial intelligence" was not in the top 100 search terms on Gartner.com. By May 2017, the term ranked at No. 7, indicating the popularity of the topic and interest from Gartner clients in understanding how AI can and should be used as part of their digital business strategy. Gartner predicts that by 2020, AI will be a top five investment priority for more than 30 percent of CIOs. (https://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3763265)

In a recent report by ETF Database, Artificial Intelligence was a top trend for investors in 2017 due to advancements from stocks like Apple, Amazon Facebook and Google.

They note, "Perhaps the biggest advance in AI this year was the fact that Google's DeepMind won against one of the best Go players in the world. That was not predicted to happen until a few years down the road. The development stirred speculation that Artificial Intelligence could go mainstream and replace a host of jobs much earlier than expected."

This week's Consumer Electronics Show, CES 2018 https://www.ces.tech/ in Las Vegas will showcase some of the newest and hottest innovations in AI and robotics, with several of the companies in the news (below) introducing 'what's next' for 2018 and beyond.
