"The European Artificial Intelligence industry, like all around it, has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. Vendors of AI systems are scrambling to interpret the impact of COVID-19 on their outlook, while trying to determine how they can support efforts to address the pandemic. The AI systems industry is set to experience depreciated demand from many vertical sectors in 2020. However, in the long term, increased focus on business resilience due to COVID-19 will result in increased spending on AI systems," said Jack Vernon, senior research analyst, European AI Systems.
