How Artificial Intelligence will fare in 2016?

Artificial Intelligence, as we know it today, was originally coined by computer scientist John McCarthy in 1956 to describe the study of intelligence in living beings, by studying its essential features on a computer. In this article we cast an eye on the work done so far and more importantly on How Artificial Intelligence will fare in 2016? An auto-cut stabilizer, a fully automatic washing machine that can sense the amount of load and dirt, a microwave which can be programmed to heat food at a particular temperature for a specified time and smartphones – are some of the most common examples of devices using Artificial Intelligence, though most of these are based on stimuli – reaction model, meaning they behave in a certain way to a particular input. In the past, there have been companies that have known how to leverage Artificial Intelligence but have not been technology ready. As Artificial Intelligence covers more ground, applications of Artificial Intelligence would breach the barriers of organizations beyond IT. We expect large scale process analysis and re-engineering, resulting in efficient, intelligent processes that would require little or no monitoring.
