1. AI-as-a-service (AIaaS)
Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS) is basically third-party offering of artificial intelligence outsourcing. So, people get to take advantage AI without spending too much money, investing in the same and at a much lower level of risk involved.
For this reason, much of the AI applications will continue to be done through providers of as-a-service platforms, which allow us to simply feed in our own data and pay for the algorithms or compute resources as we use them
In past few years, several huge IT firms such as Google (Cloud Platform), Amazon (Web Services), Microsoft (Azure) and IBM (Developer Cloud) and some startups such as BigML, Dataiku, ForecastThis have begun to provide Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS).
2. 5G Networks
Fifth generation wireless (5G) is a wireless networking architecture built on the 802.11ac IEEE wireless networking standard, which aims to increase data communication speeds by up to three times compared to its predecessor, 4G (IEEE 802.11n).
Tech companies are promising a lot from 5G. While 4G tops out at a theoretical 100 megabits per second (Mbps), 5G tops out at 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). That means 5G is a hundred times faster than the current 4G technology—at its theoretical maximum speed, anyway.
For example, the Consumer Technology Association pointed out that, at this speed, you could download a two-hour movie in just 3.6 seconds on 5G, versus 6 minutes on 4G or 26 hours on 3G.
