One emerging trend related to the world wide web, and by extension, the dark web, is the increasing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This includes the development of intelligent search algorithms and the automation of various online tasks.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are two of the most exciting emerging technologies in the ecommerce space, but will they make it to dark web sites as well? We’re doubtful that there will be a quick adoption on the dark web, because large companies tend to be the primary drivers and adopters of new tech. Once it is commoditized for the masses, the dark web vendors will pick it up.
In this article, we will explore how these technologies are being used by merchants to improve customer engagement, automate repetitive tasks, and increase sales.
What is AI?
AI is a broad term that refers to machines that can mimic human behavior. It includes both cognitive processes (such as learning) and physical actions (such as moving). The term “artificial” refers to the fact that these machines behave in ways similar to humans. In other words, they have some level of consciousness and can make decisions based on their own understanding of situations rather than following pre-programmed instructions or rules.
What Is Machine Learning?
Machine learning is a subset of AI that focuses on developing systems that can learn from data without being explicitly programmed by humans. For example, if you’re trying to train your dog to sit whenever he hears the word “sit,” you give him treats when he does it right but withhold them when he doesn’t follow through with a command like “sit” or “stay.” Over time, your dog will start sitting automatically when he hears those commands even without seeing any treats because it’s become a habit for him!
Ecommerce is a huge and growing part of the global economy. Ecommerce sales worldwide are expected to reach $5.5 trillion by 2023, up from $2.3 trillion in 2016. It’s hard to say how much ecommerce is done on the dark web, but with the ascension of crypto payments, it’s sure to be an enormous number. The number of people who shop online is also growing rapidly: consumers worldwide spent a record $1.86 trillion on ecommerce platforms in 2017, up by 18% from the previous year.
We expect the dark web to follow the same trends seen in traditional, online markets. One emerging trend related to ecommerce is the increasing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This includes the development of intelligent search algorithms and the automation of various online tasks. For example, companies like Amazon have used AI to develop tools that help customers find what they want more quickly than humans could do. In addition, some retailers offer suggestions for products based on customer buying patterns or other information they have collected about you as a customer (such as your age).
The increasing use of AI in ecommerce has also led to new opportunities for businesses that provide services related to AI, such as data scientists who specialize in machine learning or computer programmers who specialize in software development using artificial intelligence techniques such as deep learning algorithms (which are sometimes used to create chatbots).
The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning is a growing trend in ecommerce. This includes the development of intelligent search algorithms, as well as automation of various online tasks. Will this trickle down to dark web links and dark web sites and forums? Probably, but our guess is that it will occur 1-2 years after it is mainstream due to the fact that a lot of vendors on the darknet aren’t keen to invest heavily in what is essentially a faceless transaction between parties.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping ecommerce companies to develop more personalized experiences for their customers. They are also helping to improve the speed at which users can find what they’re looking for on an e-commerce site, which means more conversions and higher sales.
Another example of this is Amazon’s “Recommendations” feature, which uses AI to recommend products based on your previous purchases—and on what other customers who have similar tastes have purchased. This helps customers find products that are similar to what they’ve bought before—and it also means that Amazon doesn’t have to rely on human customer service reps who may not always be able to answer questions about specific products or brands. The result? More satisfied customers who find exactly what they want without having to wait around on hold with a human rep!
One of the most exciting trends in ecommerce is the increasing use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This includes the development of intelligent search algorithms and the automation of various online tasks.
This isn’t new, either. In fact, it’s been happening for years. But now that companies have made it easier than ever for businesses to implement AI and ML into their systems, we’ll probably start seeing even more growth in this space, even on the dark web.
One example is how AI is being used to improve customer service on ecommerce websites. For example, when you need help navigating your way through an online store or making a purchase, you can now talk with an AI-powered chatbot who will help guide you through purchasing options and provide product recommendations based on your past buying history (as well as any other information they’ve been able to gather).
Another interesting trend involves using machine learning techniques like deep learning to identify images and text within photos or videos uploaded to an ecommerce site—for example, if someone uploads an image of a shirt they want you to buy from their personal Instagram account as part of a sponsored post advertising that brand’s clothing line).
