The future of Consumer, Enterprise, and Industrial products and services will be Virtual, Artificial, and Automated. Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics represent three powerful trends in ICT that will impact everything from the design, production, distribution, and management of goods and services to the way fundamental manner in which humans work, play, and generally interact with the world.

Virtual Reality (VR) is poised for considerable global growth, providing abundant opportunities for service providers, content developers, and ecosystem component providers. VR and other immersive technologies will be important to many industry verticals that leverage VR and mixed reality for a variety of enterprise purpose including internal operations, managing supply chains, and supporting customers.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly integrated in many areas including Internet search, entertainment, commerce applications, content optimization, and robotics. The long-term prospect for AI is that it will become embedded in many different other technologies and provide autonomous decision making on behalf of humans, both directly, and indirectly through many processes, products, and services.

Robotics is broadly segmented into enterprise, industrial, military, and consumer robotics. Major market segments that cross-over industries include Healthcare bots, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, and Autonomous Vehicles. Enterprise Robotics includes use of robots for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer services and support. Functions include internal business operations and processes, delivery of goods and services, research, analytics, and other business specific applications.
