What We Can Expect From .AI in 2017

Do you have your eyes on a .AI domain name? Chances are they are already looking at you.

Say hello to the future ofartificial intelligence online. Originally the domain extension for Anguilla, .AI has become a popular choice for Artificial Intelligence start-ups and established brands. This Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) “hack” gives Artificial Intelligence companies an edgy and memorable name for their brand online.

Where is .AI headed?

2017 is going to be the year for Artificial Intelligence, a year for volatile change and risk-taking. Brands who don’t proactively embrace innovation and deep learning will be left behind.

If you haven’t seen this video yet, watch it. Amazon Go’s video has everyone in our office feeling some type of way. This just may be the beginning and the end of the traditional retail infrastructure as we know it.

An end to POS Systems, Baggers Boys, and Cashiers? Don’t worry stock boys, greeters and aisle cleaners – your job seems pretty safe still.

An end to shoplifting? Amazon essentially just eliminated the problem of shoplifting altogether. There will be no more sneaking products under jackets and stowing them away in bags and purses, with technology that inventories and automatically charges your purchases as you leave.

The beginning of an artificial intelligence revolution? We are going to start seeing more companies move into a technology and experience-driven retail environment where the role of employees and machinery shifts from mundane to creative.

So what does the future hold for .AI in 2017? We have a few ideas, but the rest is up to you. Feeling inspired? Say hello to your future artificial intelligence website today!
