The latest market research from the field of Artificial Intelligence shows that over the next few years, the demand for AI is set to rise substantially.

The market is projected to expand at an incredible CAGR of 50.51% from 2017 to 2021.

Interestingly enough while the market for AI is set to grow exponentially, so is the market for riot control gear, a report released in 2016 showed that a 5.3% increase in the market was to be expected by 2020. Are the two intertwined?

The 50% increase in demand for Artificial Intelligence, will mean a massive decrease in the need for jobs because artificial intelligence can replace the need for human workers, and this is where the riot control gear could come into play. Lack of employment means lack of money to afford goods and food.
