One of the biggest, current and future, trends in technology is artificial intelligence (AI).  Whether you realize it or not AI is already embedded in your daily life and it’s increasing all the time. 

Each time you contact Amazon customer service, make a banking transaction, use your smartphone, your Echo virtual assistant or a late model car, some type of artificial intelligence is at work.

As domain investors, it’s critical to keep tap of startups in this space such that you can acquire branded domains.

Replicating Brain Power

So what is AI and how can we incorporate AI friendly domains into our brandable portfolio?

First let’s define artificial intelligence and its various branches:

  • Artificial Intelligence – A catch all term that includes techniques used to teach computers to learn, reason, perceive, infer, communicate and make decisions similar to, or better than, humans.
  • Natural Language Processing – Taking text or speech and “reading” it using various text annotation tools to extract information and meaning.
  • Deep Learning – Powerful statistical technologies that classify patterns utilizing mega training data sets and layered AI neural networks.
  • Machine Learning – Developing computers with the ability to perform intelligent actions without explicitly being programmed.

Opportunity knocks

In the next two years corporate spending on AI is expected to double and hit $80 billion.

In just this year retail companies will invest $6 billion in AI technologies leading all other sectors including banking, manufacturing and health care.

The names of some existing companies providing AI products or services:

AI Brain, CloudMinds, DeepMind, IrisAI, NextIT, OpenAI, ViXenze, X.ai, DrawBridge, Zoox, Nauto, Logzio, CrowdFlower, RapidMiner, DataRobot, Paxata, Trifacta, DataMinr[sic], MindMeld, Numenta, Affectiva, VoyagerLabs, SiftScience, DarkTrace, Cylance, AlphaSense, SightMachine, KensoTech, Anki, Rokio, ChronoCam, OrbitalInsight, ClarifAI, Captricity and Zymergen.
