Getting into the
fast lane with AI
The impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is
being felt across a range of technologies
disrupting the traditional methods
of doing things and pointing the way
to futuristic advances in technology.
Fadi Kanafani, Senior Director Middle
East, NetApp, highlights the current
status of AI in the automotive industry
and considers a future where cars will
connect to each other, to our homes and
he impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being seen across
industries and geographies. AI is now a key to success for
organisations and is set to be a significant contributor towards
global economic growth by 2030.
According to a study by McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), on average,
the global gross domestic product (GDP) could increase by 1.2
percentage points per year, which would correspond to a total ‘value
added’ of US$13 trillion.
Among a number of industry segments, the automotive industry is
one of the most technologically advanced and progressive industries.
It’s no surprise that the industry is a frontrunner in adopting and
incorporating AI into research, design and manufacturing processes
for smarter and better outcomes and products.
When you think about AI in automotive, autonomous vehicles is
likely the first use case that comes to mind. While the holy grail in the
industry is full self-driving, defined as level five, most companies are
already offering increasingly sophisticated adaptive driver assistance
systems (ADAS) as stepping stones towards that level of autonomy.
