It’s the time of year again when we gaze into our crystal ball and see if we can discern what will be coming our way in 2018. As someone wise once said, the future is always in motion, which does make it rather difficult to predict. That’s all part of the fun though, so once again we present to you our predictions for 2018.
AI will continue its rapid growth in 2018
AI has not followed the hype curve in the traditional sense. It was hyped and then went straight into reality, without entering the ‘trough of disillusionment’ (although we’ve had some internal debate as to whether AI has been overhyped or not). This is rare and has fuelled a more rapid adoption of the technology and what it can offer. In 2018, pretty much every corner of the semiconductor industry will be impacted by AI technologies, and segments such as consumer, commercial, automotive, robotics, IoT and data centres will be transformed. The introduction of a neural network API on Android (Android NN) will see a huge rise in the number of AI applications on mobile, while neural networks accelerators will vastly improve the performance of AI on embedded and mobile devices.
