We all want to know what’s going on with technology. What’s new, what’s about to happen, what should I be learning, what companies are looking into?

You can learn all this with the 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle for Artificial Intelligence. The Gartner Hype Cycle provides you with graphic representations of technologies and applications, and what this means for real business problems and future opportunities. 

The 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle™ for Artificial Intelligence (AI) identifies innovations and techniques that are currently providing us with significant benefits while also taking into consideration the risks that come with it. 

Many of you have probably been wondering what will happen with technology now, especially since the rise of large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT. GenerativeAI is taking over, and we all want to know more! So what has the Gartner Hype Cycle informed us?

To start, Gartner suggests that there are two sides of Generative AI:

  • Innovations that will be fueled by Generative AI
  • Innovations that will fuel advances in Generative AI


Innovation Fueled by Generative AI


Generative AI will change a lot of things, and some of the areas that it will fuel innovation in are:

  • Artificial General Intelligence
  • AI Engineering
  • Autonomic Systems
  • Cloud AI Services
  • Composite AI
  • Computer Vision
  • Data-centric AI
  • Edge AI
  • Intelligent Applications
  • Model Operationalization
  • Operational AI Systems
  • Prompt Engineering
  • Smart Robots
  • Synthetic data


Innovation Fueling Advances in Generative AI


So what are the areas that will fuel advances in Generative AI? They are:

  • AI Simulation
  • AI trust, risk and security management (AI TRiSM)
  • Causal AI
  • Data Labeling and Annotation
  • First-principles AI (FPAI)
  • Foundation Models
  • Knowledge Graphs
  • Multiagent Systems (MAS)
  • Neurosymbolic AI
  • Responsible AI
