As a Product Manager, I'm always looking for new technologies that enable a competitive advantage. In the recent past, we've seen trends like “social” and “mobile” be predicted and then dominate the landscape, the next version of this is "smart" or "using artificial intelligence" (AI).
But you probably know this already. Awesome people like Shivon Zilis from Bloomberg Beta are writing about machine intelligence trends.
Sidenote: If you're new to the machine learning craze, read my deep learning primer for product managers.
Basically, AI for web and mobile apps means combining natural language processing (NLP) with computer vision capabilities to enrich large amounts of unstructured data. Then, doing something amazing with that data that only machine intelligence could possibly enable.
