How Will Tech Companies Make Money From Artificial Intelligence?

December 15, 2018 / Chris Neiger

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a big idea with an equally big opportunity. AI is slated to add $15.7 trillion to global gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030, according to research by PwC, and it's going to change how we use transportation, and even how we do our jobs. Google is the primary driver of the vast majority of its parent company's revenue, and those sales are mainly earned through selling ads online. Why does that matter for Google's AI ambitions? Because the company is now vigorously pursuing sales of its smart speaker so it can collect more search data from users and use that information to sell even more ads.
