At 451, we’ve got AI & machine learning covered

I started covering machine learning in earnest at 451 Research way back in 2001, focusing initially on machine learning-driven text analytics used for national security applications.

Most of the companies I covered back then are gone via acquisition or expiration, but there are now orders of magnitude more to cover. I cannot list all the companies my colleagues and I cover here, but what I can do is give you a flavor of our coverage by showing you a list of just a selection of our reports that are focused all or in part on AI & machine learning. Most of these are for clients only, but you can see summaries of all of them.

Some are long format Technology & Business Insight reports, some are part of our daily-updated Market Insight service.

The main one is the Current and Future State of AI and Machine Learning that we published in March. But here some others….
