ABI Research, a market-foresight advisory firm providing strategic guidance on the most compelling transformative technologies, announced significant findings in the Video & Cloud Services, Smartphones and Wearables and Intelligent Supply Chain markets.
Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence for Better QoE Critical for the Future of Video Services
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will optimize video content delivery. “Higher resolution video content, such as ultra-HD 4K, and latency-sensitive services, such as Augmented Reality (AR)/ Virtual Reality (VR) video applications, will drive the deployment of edge computing platforms for content delivery,” commented Khin Sandi Lynn, Industry Analyst at ABI Research.
AI Set to Drive Global Supply Chain Technology Market to $440 Billion by 2023
Over the next 5 years, revenues generated by technology in the global supply chain will reach US$440 billion by 2023. “Supply chain operators must find innovative ways to deliver the three primary tenets of a successful strategy: visibility, intelligence, and efficiency,” said Nick Finill, Senior Analyst at ABI Research. “Technologies such as robotics, blockchain, IoT, and especially Artificial Intelligence are vital for supply chain operators to remain competitive in today’s complex, global, and customer-centric market.”
Machine Vision Boosted by the Increasing Use of AI Chips in the Mobile Devices Market
Mobile devices, particularly smartphones, are increasingly featuring embedded Machine Vision technology. “Smartphones offer a convenient form factor for Machine Vision, and with an increasing number of Artificial Intelligence (AI) chips in use, such as Apple’s A12 Bionic and Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 980, its prevalence is likely to increase,” said Stephanie Tomsett, Research Analyst at ABI Research.
