Opinions of 10 expert on how artificial intelligence will develop in 2022

Gartner estimates that the global AI software market will reach $62 billion in 2022. In a Toolbox survey, 42% of tech professionals confirmed that AI will be the biggest technology trend in 2022. We have gathered expert opinions on how AI will develop this year in order to provide new options for its use for all fields of activity.
1. AI will develop Low-Code technologies
Jean-Francois Gagnier, Head of Product Management and AI Strategy at ServiceNow
"AI will change the development of society's skills. The achievements of AI in low-code technology will allow an ordinary person without deep knowledge of programming languages to become a developer. Such developers will be able to type in a simple language what problem they are trying to solve, and the AI will be able to generate code."
2. New rules may limit the use of AI in some areas
Omkar Harkar, Data Science and Analytics Manager at NTT DATA Services
"Regulatory aspects of AI related to trust and ethics will become a more important factor of this year. The EU continues to implement the rules and recently published a draft of additional AI rules. The EU has even gone as far as possibly banning certain types and uses of AI. We expect that the regulatory framework for AI and how it can be used in non-military sectors will expand."
3. AI will help reduce costs and help businesses overcome labor shortages
Tom Shi, CEO and Founder of OneStream Software
"In order to benefit more from AI, organizations will prioritize the democratization of technology. Data processing and analysis specialists are expensive and difficult to find, so organizations are looking for alternative ways to extract value from their data in conditions of resource scarcity. Companies implementing built-in automated AI (AutoAI) tools will allow analysts with different levels of experience to analyze data flows, quickly create machine learning models and find useful information, as a data specialist would do. This helps companies to increase revenues, optimize costs and improve the efficiency of operations. Moving forward, I expect others to start following this trend too."
4. In 2022, organizations will need IT talent to start AI projects
Bernd Rucker, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Camunda
"Processes are everywhere, and most of them can be automated to improve productivity. IT managers should start small and start with a small beacon project to allow organizations to scale efforts. This shift requires a lot of IT talent, which is currently lacking in many companies due to staff shortages. Leaders must prioritize recruiting and attracting talent, and create a culture that allows their talents to flourish, otherwise they risk falling behind."
5. The role of man in the development of AI will be more important than ever
Hiro Tien, Vice President of Viralspace
"There is a common misconception that AI already exists independently in terms of innovation and efficiency. And although there is certainly progress in this direction, human intervention is still required. We need to take a step back and remember the purpose of AI, which is to give us faster and more accurate decision-making. But there must always be someone behind the scenes making the final choice. Human augmentation should play a crucial role."
6. Healthcare will actively use AI-based technologies
Sanjeev Agrawal, President and Chief Operating Officer of LeanTaaS
"As other industries continue to use the power of AI and advanced analytics to optimize their capabilities, healthcare will continue to explore opportunities to achieve the same results. Healthcare systems need to make sure they are investing in the right technologies. Decision makers in the healthcare system should be confident that AI-based technology addresses the causes of their problems. Healthcare systems need to recognize the value of AI and that the introduction of new technologies can really pay off."
7. AI automation will depend on having access to clean data
Ksenia Palke, Head of AI Department at Airspace
"The impact of AI in 2022 will depend on strengthening consumer confidence, proper implementation and sufficient historical data. Knowing when the benefits of AI will outweigh the costs and time to develop it will be crucial to deciding whether to implement it. Finally, AI automation will depend on having access to large amounts of relevant and reliable data, because data has always been (and will remain) the key to AI."
8. AI in cybersecurity will gain momentum to detect anomalies
Miles Gilsenan, Vice President of Data, Analytics and AI at Apps Associates
"Protecting networks, critical infrastructure, data and other valuable digital assets requires much more than can be achieved with people or traditional monitoring methods. AI provides valuable capabilities related to anomaly detection and pattern recognition, and can even keep up to date with the latest threats by using natural language processing to view news and articles about cyber threats."
9. Without the right data, AI projects will not meet expectations
Mike Connell, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Digital Transformation at Enthought
"It seems that many people believe that machine learning is a magic box into which you pour your data, and it automatically gives new and valuable business ideas. This leads to the fact that they initiate projects with teams that lack the necessary skills, who are trying to build models with data that is insufficient in quantity and/or quality.
To justify the investment, it is necessary to provide AI with the necessary data.
10. AI will become an integral part of projects in the field of transport and road safety
Ryan Wilkinson, Technical Director of IntelliShift
"From 2022, artificial intelligence will become more widespread in the field of transportation and road safety, and AI-enabled cameras and sensors will be integrated into both commercial and personal vehicles to prevent distraction, drowsiness or impaired driving. This trend will intensify even more with the adoption of the infrastructure bill, which includes measures to introduce technologies to combat drunk driving in all new cars. In the fleet, we will also continue to see the growth of technologies used in commercial vehicles to make work in the field of cargo transportation safer and more attractive, which is crucial in the current shortage of drivers, which further disrupts the supply chain."
