Consumers have spoken, artificial intelligence is a profitable industry. From Amazon to Google to Apple, major tech companies have made inroads, crafting intelligent software -- housed in sleek, accessible hardware -- that has drawn massive customer attention. This trend is set to soon move out of home devices, like Echo and Google Home, and onto the streets, where self-driving cars leverage major breakthroughs in computer vision so passengers can ride easy, knowing their vehicles will "see" and react to objects and road signs in real time without their input. In fact, cars with these features are already popular with consumers, and by 2020 10 million cars with self-driving attributes will be on roadways. But while there are plenty of ways for consumers to leverage AI, enterprises are asking themselves how they can get in on this wave of innovation.
