Japan Cognitive/Artificial Intelligence Systems Forecast, 2018−2022
This IDC report provides the performance of the Japan cognitive/artificial intelligence (AI) systems market in 2017 and a forecast (based on end-user spending) for the same market from 2018 to 2022. IDC deems that the market size almost doubled in 2017 because of the move of systems from the trial stage to actual deployment and the increased embedding of AI functions in software. IDC forecasts that the same market will continue to expand from 2018 onward when AI systems will become more pervasive and the Japan cognitive/AI systems market will expand. This trend will be driven by a declining working population and workstyle transformation goals such as productivity improvements and automation of labor. On the other hand, the shortage of AI experts in IT suppliers and user companies and vague assessment methods of the systems' effectiveness are inhibitors in the market. "IT suppliers should embed AI functionalities in software to deploy AI systems in actual businesses in user companies, establish support systems for the selection or creation of appropriate learning data, and strengthen operation support for utilization of AI systems in user companies," states Takashi Manabe, group director, IDC Japan.
