The Current AI Landscape, and Why We Are Building Vertical AI - Dennis Mortensen, Founder X.ai

AI has the potential to be a platform, service, or software. AI has two dimensions that it can be seen in: Horizontal or Vertical. The standards of being a good AI product must encompass autonomy, communication using natural language, and natural responses to the user.

The Current AI Landscape, and Why We Are Building Vertical AI - Dennis Mortensen, Founder X.ai

  2. 2. It’s worth looking at which segments these players occupy. I see three key segments. 1. AI Platform Intelligent platforms have a set of existing features that you use to build bots (applications). Examples: Facebook’s Messenger, Microsoft’s Bot Platform, Amazon Echo 2. AI as a Service These allow developers to build models and generate predictions in the cloud, without having to engineer and/or maintain the supporting infrastructure. Examples: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft’s Azure and Google’s Cloud offerings 3. AI Software Proprietary software and/or open source tools that will help you with the learning aspect of building an AI. Examples: TensorFlow from Google, Spark’s MLlib

  4. 4. What makes a good AI product? 1. Truly autonomous The best AI products make the user more capable. And the very best AI completes a task start to finish for the user-- the user should have to do as little work as possible to make it happen. 2. Allows users to communicate using natural language It’s just as important that these AI agents or virtual assistants allow users to communicate using natural language. Having to modify speech or text into some sort of machine syntax is cumbersome, and requires the user to do work. The whole point is to seamlessly hand over a task. 3. Has a natural response to the user On the other end of the interaction, it’s important for the AI’s responses to seem as natural as possible. This is where the role of the AI Interaction Designer came in at x.ai.
