By leveraging Microsoft's Azure cloud and AI technologies, Genesys is helping enterprises create a seamless customer journey with Microsoft's trusted, secure and scalable platform."
IBM (NYSE:IBM) has launched a global forum for advancing tech policy recommendations called IBM Policy Lab at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos.

The policy paper outlines five imperatives including:

- Different rules for different risks.
- Don't hide your AI. (Emphasis on transparency)
- Explain your AI.
- Test your AI for bias.

Global AI Market to Hit $160 Billion USD by 2026
A report from Acumen Research and Consulting finds that the global artificial intelligence market is expected to reach $160 billion USD by 2026 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 49 percent in the forecast period 2019-2026. The following excerpts from the report description outline market insights garnered by the research:
The growth of the artificial intelligence industry is driven by growing adoption of cloud-based applications and services, the rise in the connected device market, significant investments in 5G technologies, and increased demand for smart virtual assistants. Currently the number of experts in AI technologies is small. Therefore, increasing the role of machine learning software (M2 M, M2P) in manufacturing industries is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.
There are, however, various factors that still need to be tackled which could have a significant long-term effect on the Artificial Intelligence market. Data security & privacy is a key issue about the Artificial Intelligence implementation. In the healthcare sector, for example, private patient & family data constitute a valuable asset, and a malevolent AI or a malicious malware infecting the AI will exploit it.
