This IDC Market Perspective discusses how, for suppliers of AI technology and services, the market is growing aggressively, while fragmenting deeply. Emerging legislative and regulatory frameworks are quickly forcing AI suppliers to adapt to a segmented, evolving geopolitical landscape. Recent deployments in China, Europe, and the United States highlight this schism in supplier technologies and services that will be required to compete in a global market.
"The global AI market is fracturing into multiple, regional regulatory frameworks that will dramatically increase the complexity of deploying AI technologies on a global basis. Companies need to recognize this challenge early and take steps to focus their energies in productive and supported applications of this technology moving forward," said Scott Lundstrom, group vice president and general manager, IDC Government Insights.
