Moreover, rise in demand for AI for governments around the world to predict and prevent crime is expected to fuel the market growth. For instance, law enforcement agencies in city governments of New Orleans and Los Angeles in the U.S. have worked with the private sector to create predictive policing programs. These programs use data collected from IoT devices under smart city plans such as traffic cameras, smart phones and various devices to analyze social media posts, outline criminal histories, and trace people’s ties to other gang members. This is projected use statistics and AI to assess the risk of someone committing or becoming a victim of these crimes, so that agencies can intervene.
By End User
Residential & SOHO segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Furthermore, machine learning and artificial intelligence provide considerable improvements to all areas of healthcare from treatment to diagnostics. AI tools facilitate and enhance human work and ready to support healthcare personnel with a variety of tasks from patient outreach to clinical documentation and administrative workflow as well as specialized support such as in-patient monitoring, medical device automation, and image analysis.
Increase In Demand For High-speed Broadband Services
COVID pandemic actually preponed the requirement of high-speed broadband internet. During lockdown, people had to remain in their homes. People had to continue working from home to earn their livelihood and students had to attend online classes from home only. These situations brought psychological, social, and professional need of meeting people and the only option left was to connect with them online. These requirements brought realization that one would need high speed broadband internet. The high-speed internet is provided on wireline/fiberoptic network by broadband internet service providers.
