Machine learning ops to lead AI in 2020


Last year, we predicted that 2019 was going to be the year of the pre-trained model and improved third party datasets. For 2020 we're going to take this prediction one step further and say that these pre-trained models offered by third parties will become a larger percentage of the overall model usage. Known as model-as-a-service, we'll see entities set up specifically to offer models for usage on a per-consumption, subscription or license basis. This means we'll start to see more model marketplaces and model-as-a-service embedded in cloud offerings. Currently machine learning is, for the most part, limited to companies that have large data sets and large teams.
