With recent developments like the launch of Facebook's chatbot store, Apple's acquisition of Emotient, and the release of Viv, a virtual assistant from the founders of Siri, there's no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) has started to quickly proliferate across consumer applications. Nonetheless, many of these new applications are still more novelty than necessity as their functionality is rudimentary at best, though we've come to rely on them daily – from Amazon product recommendations to Facebook facial recognition (auto tagging). Until consumer-facing AI can usher in new technological advancements that provide deeper and more human-like interaction, it still has a long way to go before it reaches its tipping point. Enterprise AI, however, offers immediate applications that help solve problems that many companies and workers face today, such as data overload. Companies across a wide range of industries have already taken advantage of AI capabilities in order to help improve both internal and external processes.
