Artificial Intelligence is touching every sphere of our lives. Technologically it is making its presence felt in online retail marketing, smartphones, games, robotic vacuum cleaners, and assistive car systems, and the list only grows! Even businesses, IT, transportation, healthcare, are transformed and revolutionized by AI-driven cutting-edge tools.
It is expected that AI and robotics will be entirely integrated into business operations and change the way organizations operate in the future. AI will help organizations become more methodical, increase ROI, reduce operational costs, assess risks and add value to them.
Artificial Intelligence is expected to transform our lives with driverless cars, AI algorithms identifying our health issues precisely, and educational programs becoming personalized. It promises to take us to an unthinkable virtual world.
AI made its presence felt some time back when IBM developed Watson in 2011, that defeated human champion players at the US TV game show Jeopardy.
Watson is a computer system that comes in question-answering format. It is capable of answering questions posed in natural language. In recent years, Google developed DeepMind AI called AlphaGo that defeated the world champion Go player.
However different experts, researchers, and entrepreneurs have different opinions about the future of artificial intelligence when it comes to having an impact on our lives in the future.
Michael Milford, a renowned professor of Electrical Engineering at the Queensland Institute of Technology and a researcher of Robotics and Automation, feels basic machine learning algorithms strengthen many technologies that we interrelate within our daily lives. He believes AI can play game-changing roles in voice and face recognition, online marketing, and assistive car systems.
Peter Stratton, a reputed researcher of Robotics and Automation believes automobile manufacturers and education institutions are going to benefit immensely from advanced AI tools if they utilize them at an optimum level.
AI is fast taking over the domain of transportation. With self-driving cars and driverless trains, it is all set to revolutionize the transportation sector. No more dependence on humans to drive us on road.
Similarly, global education will get a new dimension with AI-powered tools. It will empower and equip students with fundamental IT skills. Students can utilize it for personalized learning options, getting smart content by eliminating the barriers of boundaries and undertaking any course from anywhere.
When it comes to personalized learning options, Artificial Intelligence is set to take over classroom assignments and final exams. This, in turn, will benefit students and ensure that they get the best academic assistance.
As debates continue how AI will impact the job scenario in the future, there is a growing fear among people that several jobs will be digitized or managed by robots.
While it is true that many jobs will be automated, on the other hand it will also create unlimited job opportunities too. With automation, the demand for highly-skilled jobs that require complexity and non-standardization will be on rise.
The service sector is likely to get benefitted with substantial job gains. It is because the increasing economic growth is expected to empower consumers to spend more on services.
There will be setbacks too. Machines can never have the same emotional competencies as that of humans, but there are certain jobs that will be under threat. It includes jobs that have the most elementary levels of emotional understanding and communication.
In the healthcare sector, a virtual doctor will be able to provide customized treatments as per the lifestyle, health conditions, environment and genes of a patient. They will also be able to monitor the exact condition of the patient and provide suitable exercise and lifestyle suggestions.
Experts believe that within the next 10 years, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will take over and dominate by empowering businesses, and increasing security and generating new products. So, is AI really the future? Yes, surely.
Those organizations that will integrate AI tools in their business operations will become more methodical. Automated businesses will enjoy more productivity, increased ROI, reduced operational costs, and assessment of risks.
When it comes to security, drones will transform the way we live. They will accelerate the speed of urgent package delivery, especially of medicines. It is expected AI-driven drones will become an integral part of our lives and change it drastically just like the internet and smartphones have done.
Another way AI will revolutionize our future is by generating new services including better customer services in start-ups. By going automated, companies can integrate chatbots that will result in superior customer experiences. AI and robotics are expected to improve our problem-solving abilities and bring out innovative ideas.
To sum up, artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning are surely going to change our future for the better. We have started feeling the effects already.
I have had the pleasure of working with Visvero (Sandi) for almost two years now. She has been an extremely resourceful contact and is always quick to help. She and her team at Visvero were able to find candidates for even the most stringent requirements and job descriptions. She is a pleasure to work with and will make sure any candidate she sends over is a qualified candidate. I would recommend any recruiters working on C2C contract positions to reach out to her.

Visvero helped us develop a industry transforming solution to have a direct profit impact on mid-size landscaping industry. We have been able to help our clients manage the business lifecycle with their clients from the lead generation to contracts execution phase. The application helps our clients identify and independently track and manage each cost component on any project or maintenance contract. Tracking/ managing these allows our clients to better control quality and profitability of each contract.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, Alteryx, .NET, Tableau, Sisense, SpotFire, Machine Learning
As an advisor to various state and national agencies NIC takes on several blue sky technology projects for which we rely on trusted partners for advice and investment of time and treasure. Visvero team invested thousands of person hours helping our team socialize the key analytics technologies and develop and enhance the products for various client projects. The team was always able to take project briefs and create high utility analytics applications. Definitely recommend them for public sector applications projects.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, .NET, Tableau, Flexible
In LA, we are in a competitive market for talent. So, when we had a recent need for specialized Tableau developers, we turned to our trusted friends at Visvero. We were rapidly able to add 3 talented developers on project. Visvero was very flexible in accommodating our request to convert developers as Fandango FTE. I highly recommend Visvero recruiters for being able to find critical Business Intelligence consultants quickly and being flexible with contracts to make the gains permanent.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, OBIEE, Risk Reporting, HR Analytics
“We organized an analytics “bake-off” between IBM using Endeca and Visvero using Qlik. In two weeks the Visvero team was able to deliver a consumer ready Risk and HR analytics application, four weeks later we were just getting started with IBM. And what’s more, my team and I spent over 80 hours getting IBM to start to understand what it is that we needed. Visvero team had a subject matter expert who took all of 6 hours with my team. Engaging Visvero was a “no-brainer” decision.”
Pharmaceuticals, Sales and Research applications, Qlik, SAP
At Allergan, our business team had a very divergent view of output from our analytics roll-out. Visvero was able bridge the gap and deploy a crack team of Qlik and SAP developers who enabled us to deliver the applications in weekly sprints. Our team scaled 1 power user to a team of 8 developers in 10 days. QuikWIN methodology was transformational in how we delivered applications to our customers – the sales organization.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, SAP, Business Objects, Oracle, DB2
This project is a key win for us. Visvero consultants were properly vetted and compliant with our rigorous processes. Consultants appeared to be satisfied with offline mentoring and periodic training on new tools. As a contracted asset the engaged consultants do not have adequate access to same trainings that are available to our FTEs, Visvero closed this gap by creating their internal trainings to support our consultants. It was great for everybody involved. And the teams were super productive!
