IntroductionIntroduction
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a mega-trend in 2020. The current pandemic has only
accelerated the relevance and adoption of AI and machine learning. Here we look at
some of the top AI trends for 2021.
Before the global pandemic struck in 2020 and the world was turned on its head,
artificial intelligence (AI), and specifically the branch of AI known as machine learning
(ML), were already causing widespread disruption in almost every industry.

The 4 Top Artificial Intelligence Trends For 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted many aspects of how we do business, but it hasn’t
diminished the impact AI is having on our lives. In fact, it’s become apparent that self-
teaching algorithms and smart machines will play a big part in the ongoing fight against
this outbreak as well as others we may face in the future.
AI undoubtedly remains a key trend when it comes to picking the technologies that will
change how we live, work, and play in the near future. So, here’s an overview of what we
can expect during what will be a year of rebuilding our lives as well as rethinking business
strategies and priorities.

Smarter Big Data Data Analytics and Insights
During this ongoing pandemic, we've seen first-hand the urgent need to quickly analyze
and interpret data on the spread of viruses around the world. Governments, global health
bodies, academic research centers, and industry have come together to develop new ways
that information can be collected, aggregated, and worked with. We’ve become used to
seeing the results of this on the news every night, when the latest infection or death rates
are given for our own regions.
Technological advancement is the main reason that this pandemic hasn’t (yet) killed as
many as, for example, the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak that claimed up to 50 million lives.
From advancement in medical technology and standards of care, to advances in
communication technology that enabled outbreaks to be spotted more quickly and
lockdowns imposed. Over the next year, AI will be added to the list of technological
developments that are enabling us to more effectively deal with pandemics.

Smarter Big Data Data Analytics and Insights
The growth in the amount of scientific and medical literature alone is enormous, with
more than 28,000 papers published by April this year relating to Covid-19. A dedicated
search engine powered by natural language processing (NLP) algorithms has already been
made available, so anyone can get AI assistance when investigating this massive dataset.
Work is also ongoing to develop AI solutions to help deal with the huge backlog of other
medical issues, such as cancer, where treatment has been affected as resources are
diverted to fight Covid-19. Over the next year, we are likely to see the accelerated
adoption of AI across many other areas of healthcare, not only related to tackling viruses.
By developing our ability to apply machine learning problem-solving to these massive,
real-time global datasets, we will spot outbreaks more easily, track contact between
infected people, enable more accurate diagnoses, and, by predicting ways that a virus
might evolve in the future, develop more effective and lasting vaccinations.

Automated Detection and Prevention
We have already seen the use of drones in several jurisdictions, including the US, to at
least test the possibility that they can be used to monitor whether social distancing
guidelines are being followed. More advanced applications are on the horizon – such as
drones with the capability of detecting COVID symptoms such as high temperature in
individuals within a crowd. These systems use computer vision technology to analyze data
captured by cameras on the drones and inform authorities or local administrators of
statistics and probabilities around the spread of the virus.
Another related growth area will be the use of facial recognition technology, also powered
by computer vision algorithms. Somewhat more controversial as it focuses on the
identification of individuals, rather than patterns among groups of people, facial
recognition has been used by police to detect lockdown and quarantine-avoiders, as well
as to track the movements of individuals displaying symptoms within a crowd.
The evidence seems to suggest that the public has become more tolerant of surveillance
tactics that would previously have been considered overly draconian, due to the health
risks posed by the virus. This tolerance is likely to be further tested over the coming 18
months as technologists become more adept at AI-driven surveillance and even
enforcement.

Business on the rebound – predicting behavioral
transformation
The way we live, work, and socialise has been hugely impacted by the spread of Covid-19.
While there has been a steady, strong trend towards digital in many aspects of society,
this year, we’ve witnessed a stampede. Amazon’s sales during the second quarter of 2020
were up 40% on the same period last year, as even those who have so far shunned online
retail were forced to re-assess their options.
AI tools and platforms are already in place to help businesses understand the way their
customers are adapting to a new reality. Organisations that were previously lagging in
their uptake of digital channels for commerce and relationship nurturing have come to
understand the urgency of the situation and are quickly getting to grips with concepts
such as behavioral analytics and personalization. Tools providing organizations with self-
service access to this technology will become increasingly prevalent throughout 2021, as
small and medium-sized enterprises are seeking to establish their competitive edge.

Shutting down the next pandemic before it even
starts
Most AI algorithms are geared towards prediction, and the holy grail of AI-assisted
epidemiology will be to build systems that can accurately predict when and where future
outbreaks will take place. This research has been ongoing for some time, and in fact, some
of the earliest alerts about the current outbreak were generated by AI. Toronto-based
BlueDot’s tool was already scanning 100,000 governmental and media data sources daily
when it issued an alert about a potential outbreak in Wuhan, China, on December 31,
2019.
We can expect AI research to yield further breakthroughs over the coming 18 months that
will increase our ability to spot and react to the danger of viral outbreaks. For this to
happen, though, it will also require ongoing global cooperation between governments
and private industry. How this plays out will most likely be affected by global politics and
legislators, as well as the course of technological development. For this reason, issues such
as access to medical datasets and barriers to the international exchange of information
will also be hot topics over the coming year.

The 4 Top Artificial Intelligence Trends For 2021

  • 1. The 4 Top Artificial Intelligence Trends For 2021
  • 2. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Title Text IntroductionIntroduction Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a mega-trend in 2020. The current pandemic has only accelerated the relevance and adoption of AI and machine learning. Here we look at some of the top AI trends for 2021. Before the global pandemic struck in 2020 and the world was turned on its head, artificial intelligence (AI), and specifically the branch of AI known as machine learning (ML), were already causing widespread disruption in almost every industry. The 4 Top Artificial Intelligence Trends For 2021
  • 3. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved The 4 Top Artificial Intelligence Trends For 2021 The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted many aspects of how we do business, but it hasn’t diminished the impact AI is having on our lives. In fact, it’s become apparent that self- teaching algorithms and smart machines will play a big part in the ongoing fight against this outbreak as well as others we may face in the future. AI undoubtedly remains a key trend when it comes to picking the technologies that will change how we live, work, and play in the near future. So, here’s an overview of what we can expect during what will be a year of rebuilding our lives as well as rethinking business strategies and priorities.
  • 4. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Smarter Big Data Data Analytics and Insights During this ongoing pandemic, we've seen first-hand the urgent need to quickly analyze and interpret data on the spread of viruses around the world. Governments, global health bodies, academic research centers, and industry have come together to develop new ways that information can be collected, aggregated, and worked with. We’ve become used to seeing the results of this on the news every night, when the latest infection or death rates are given for our own regions. Technological advancement is the main reason that this pandemic hasn’t (yet) killed as many as, for example, the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak that claimed up to 50 million lives. From advancement in medical technology and standards of care, to advances in communication technology that enabled outbreaks to be spotted more quickly and lockdowns imposed. Over the next year, AI will be added to the list of technological developments that are enabling us to more effectively deal with pandemics.
  • 5. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Smarter Big Data Data Analytics and Insights The growth in the amount of scientific and medical literature alone is enormous, with more than 28,000 papers published by April this year relating to Covid-19. A dedicated search engine powered by natural language processing (NLP) algorithms has already been made available, so anyone can get AI assistance when investigating this massive dataset. Work is also ongoing to develop AI solutions to help deal with the huge backlog of other medical issues, such as cancer, where treatment has been affected as resources are diverted to fight Covid-19. Over the next year, we are likely to see the accelerated adoption of AI across many other areas of healthcare, not only related to tackling viruses. By developing our ability to apply machine learning problem-solving to these massive, real-time global datasets, we will spot outbreaks more easily, track contact between infected people, enable more accurate diagnoses, and, by predicting ways that a virus might evolve in the future, develop more effective and lasting vaccinations.
  • 6. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Automated Detection and Prevention We have already seen the use of drones in several jurisdictions, including the US, to at least test the possibility that they can be used to monitor whether social distancing guidelines are being followed. More advanced applications are on the horizon – such as drones with the capability of detecting COVID symptoms such as high temperature in individuals within a crowd. These systems use computer vision technology to analyze data captured by cameras on the drones and inform authorities or local administrators of statistics and probabilities around the spread of the virus. Another related growth area will be the use of facial recognition technology, also powered by computer vision algorithms. Somewhat more controversial as it focuses on the identification of individuals, rather than patterns among groups of people, facial recognition has been used by police to detect lockdown and quarantine-avoiders, as well as to track the movements of individuals displaying symptoms within a crowd. The evidence seems to suggest that the public has become more tolerant of surveillance tactics that would previously have been considered overly draconian, due to the health risks posed by the virus. This tolerance is likely to be further tested over the coming 18 months as technologists become more adept at AI-driven surveillance and even enforcement.
  • 7. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Business on the rebound – predicting behavioral transformation The way we live, work, and socialise has been hugely impacted by the spread of Covid-19. While there has been a steady, strong trend towards digital in many aspects of society, this year, we’ve witnessed a stampede. Amazon’s sales during the second quarter of 2020 were up 40% on the same period last year, as even those who have so far shunned online retail were forced to re-assess their options. AI tools and platforms are already in place to help businesses understand the way their customers are adapting to a new reality. Organisations that were previously lagging in their uptake of digital channels for commerce and relationship nurturing have come to understand the urgency of the situation and are quickly getting to grips with concepts such as behavioral analytics and personalization. Tools providing organizations with self- service access to this technology will become increasingly prevalent throughout 2021, as small and medium-sized enterprises are seeking to establish their competitive edge.
  • 8. © 2020 Bernard Marr, Bernard Marr & Co. All rights reserved Shutting down the next pandemic before it even starts Most AI algorithms are geared towards prediction, and the holy grail of AI-assisted epidemiology will be to build systems that can accurately predict when and where future outbreaks will take place. This research has been ongoing for some time, and in fact, some of the earliest alerts about the current outbreak were generated by AI. Toronto-based BlueDot’s tool was already scanning 100,000 governmental and media data sources daily when it issued an alert about a potential outbreak in Wuhan, China, on December 31, 2019. We can expect AI research to yield further breakthroughs over the coming 18 months that will increase our ability to spot and react to the danger of viral outbreaks. For this to happen, though, it will also require ongoing global cooperation between governments and private industry. How this plays out will most likely be affected by global politics and legislators, as well as the course of technological development. For this reason, issues such as access to medical datasets and barriers to the international exchange of information will also be hot topics over the coming year.
