To gain a sense of the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI), this research analyzes what has been done in the past, presently in the last decade and what is predicted for the next several decades. The paper will highlight the biggest changes in AI and give examples of how these technologies are applied in several key industry sectors along with influencers that can affect adoption speed. Lastly, the research examines the driving triggers such as cost, speed, accuracy, diversity/inclusion and interdisciplinary research/collaboration that propel AI into an essential transformative technology.
