Artificial intelligence (AI) has long been the technology of the future – and the future is fast approaching. As AI matures to become an imminent force of change, in its shadows, machine intelligence (MI) is already enabling organizations to quickly reap the benefits of emulated human intelligence through targeted applications. MI and AI aren’t so different – where AI broadly tries to emulate general human reasoning, MI specializes in the applying human logic and reasoning to specific tasks and processes. Deloitte’s eighth Tech Trends report reveals that machine intelligence (MI) is a trend to watch in 2017. MI will likely become omnipresent as three primary forces converge – the same factors paving the way for ubiquitous AI:
