While some major players may build comprehensive models, the trend is towards vendors hyperfocusing on specific industries. The AI landscape anticipates a mix of foundational models and custom model makers, forming a diverse market. Unlike typical software trends, smaller AI companies are expected to fine-tune models for specific needs, creating an AI supply chain with both general and specialized models.
