Thomas Hellmann, a University of Oxford professor, goes into what changes we can expect to see by 2030. One of the biggest expected changes is that by the middle of the 2020s, Beijing will fully surpass Silicon Valley as the largest tech hub in the world. This will further spur the development on quantum supremacy which will lead to artificial intelligence.
Then by the end of the 2020s, claiming to do artificial intelligence will have become a complete yawner — because everyone will be doing it. Artificial intelligence will be ubiquitous in business, although the much-heralded artificial general intelligence will still be decades away.
And while artificial intelligence will no longer be a differentiator for startups, it will quickly become part of everyday life for entrepreneurs. AI will help them to identify business opportunities, scan technology solutions, find relevant customers and identify new competitors.
