Although only 17 percent of software developers worked with artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning this year, 73 percent of those who did not say they are planning to learn about the technologies next year, according to a DigitalOcean survey of 2,500 developers.

With major companies adding AI to their products for developers to more easily integrate data, it is becoming increasingly vital for developers to familiarize themselves with these technologies. The DigitalOcean poll also found many of the AI-using developers worked with the technology with TensorFlow, sentiment analysis, image recognition, and natural-language processing. Significant AI-related issues respondents expect to be confronted with in 2018 include workflow automation and incorporating AI and machine learning within the business.

Meanwhile, 89 percent of respondents listed Linux as their preferred operating system, and PHP was rated the programming language of choice by 27 percent.
