The Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS) Opportunity

A new “_” as a service model is aspiring to become just as widely adopted based on its potential to drive business outcomes with unmatched efficiency: Artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS). Software as a service (SaaS) and Platform as a service (PaaS) have become part of the everyday tech flavour since emerging as delivery models, shifting how enterprises understand technology. Today, most companies are using at least one type of “as a service” offering to focus on their core business and spend less money on an important service. Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS) is the third party offering of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It allows individuals and companies to experiment with AI for various purposes without large initial investment and with lower risk. The combination of the SaaS business model and AI services has brought AI to the masses without a heavy price tag.
