Investment and adoption in Asia has jumped significantly between 2016 and 2017, led by China (from a growth of 31% to 61%) and India (from a growth of 29% to 69%). Spending on AI systems in Asia, excluding Japan, is expected to reach $ 4.6bn in 2021, with a compound annual growth rate of 72.9% between 2016 and 2021, according to data provider IDC2.
