AGI Global Market to Reach $50.8 Billion by 2023 with 42% CAGR

Research from Mind Commerce and published on In For Growth indicates that the Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) global market is projected to reach $50.8 billion USD by 2023 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 42 percent in the forecast period 2018-2023. An excerpt from the report summary reads:

Also known as Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), General Purpose Artificial Intelligence represents silicon-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) that mimics human-like cognition to perform a wide variety of tasks that span beyond mere number crunching. Whereas most current AI solutions are limited in terms of the type and variety of problems that may be solved, AGI may be employed to solve many different problems including machine translation, natural language processing, logical reasoning, knowledge representation, social intelligence, and numerous others.

Unlike many early AI solutions that were designed and implemented with a narrow focus, AGI will be leveraged to solve problems in many different domains and across many different industry verticals including 3D design, transforming customer service, securing enterprise data, securing public facility and personnel, financial trading, healthcare solution, highly personalized target marketing, detecting fraud, recommendation engines, autonomous vehicles and smart mobility, online search, and many other areas. AGI is rapidly evolving in many areas. However, scalability remains a challenge until that 2023 timeframe.

AI in Agriculture to Reach $790 Million USD by 2024 at 21.8% CAGR

Research recently published from WiseGuyReports finds that the global AI in agriculture market will grow from $240 million in 2019 to $790 million in 2024 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.8 percent in the same forecast period. An excerpt from the report summary reads:

“Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Agriculture Market size is being driven by the growing adoption of the robots in agriculture. Increasing consumption and rising requirement of better yield of crops are estimated to be one of the major factors that is fueling the demand of robots in agriculture. Increasing consumption motivates farmers to scale up farming operations and give rise to the requirement of automating farming operations. As the farmers are shifting more towards automation, drones and robots have become integral part of agriculture farms and are enhancing yield and improving the product quality. Since AI is the backbone of robotics, increasing adoption of robots in agriculture is estimated to drive the AI in agriculture market growth.”
