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.
