Attention data analysts: the 3 industries likely to adopt AI in the next 5 years

While there’s a lot of buzz around data and AI, many companies are still to adopt this way of working. When more companies introduce this, the demand for data analysts will significantly increase. With this in mind, we took a look at the three industries most likely to adopt AI in the next five years.

1.The Information Technology industry evolution is nourished by data

Due to the amount of data available, the IT industry will be dramatically impacted by AI. The skills of data analysts will allow jobs that require lower level skills, such as system administration and verification, to become automated. With the system itself replacing the majority of jobs, this allows for a shift in focus. Thanks to AI, companies will be able to deploy more resources for innovation and new IT developments.

2.Data will create more transparency in the Supply Chain industry

Big data, digitisation, automation, and robotics are changing the landscape of the supply chain industry. Due to data, transparency is created, and blockchains are set up for full traceability of sources. TE-FOOD for example, is a farm to table traceability solution. Using blockchain technology, it allows consumer transparency across the entire supply chain; from the origin of the product, to the arrival on supermarket shelves.  When you scan a QR code of a product supported by TE-FOOD, the exact details of the origin of the product, any potential vaccinations or pest prevention material, and the date of packaging will pop up on your device. Blockchain and data make this possible. When looking at transparency from a global perspective, there a numerous advantages; traceability of problems in a chain can be detected easily, information is transferred quicker, and solutions can be implemented at a faster pace. It will make companies, trade, and systems, more efficient.

3.Data science will enable top notch personal experiences in the Customer Service Industry

Data science gives companies the ability to transform available data into artificial intelligence, allowing them to create better customer experiences. Take facial recognition; apps are being launched across the globe that allow customers to purchase products using this advanced stream of technology. Many applications allow businesses direct interaction with customer profiles; hotels are now able to keep check on a customer flights, allowing them to amend their service accordingly to enhance the customer experience.
