December means holiday parties, New Year's resolutions, and a blizzard of technology industry predictions. You'll see a ton of AI-related calls as we approach 2019. The artificial intelligence hype machine is already roaring. The potential impacts of AI are wide-ranging – as are the related forecasts, on everything from how AI will change college admissions to the role it will play in international relations and politics.

Reinforcement Learning Will Be 2019's Biggest Trend In Data Science

#artificialintelligence

What will be the next thing to revolutionize data science in 2019? Reinforcement learning will be the next big thing in data science in 2019. While RL has been around for a long time in academia, it has hardly seen any industry adoption at all. Why? Partly because there have been plenty of low-hanging fruits to pick in predictive analytics, but mostly because of the barriers in implementation, knowledge and available tools. The potential value in using RL in proactive analytics and AI is enormous, but it also demands a greater skillset to master.

AI (artificial intelligence) is perhaps one of the biggest trends to watch in the months to come, with many analysts predicting growth and technology providers making big moves in this area. PwC even suggests that global GDP will be 14% higher in 2030 as a result of AI, which is the equivalent of an additional $15.7 trillion.

InEight announced it acquired BASIS, a company that purpose-built an AI planning software tool for the construction industry. The software captures insights and learnings from prior projects and uses the knowledge to make informed suggestions during the planning process.
