Artificial Intelligence plays an influential role in most of the technologies used in a digital economy that is expected to increasingly dominate modern life.
"The digital economy’s share in more than 40 countries has exceeded 40%. Part of this growth is due to coronavirus-induced conditions and the growing impact of information technology,” Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Technologies Sattar Hashemi said at the ceremony for unveiling projects related to drafting a roadmap for the development of artificial intelligence, IRNA reported.
"According to an estimation made in 2017, the digital economy’s share of the world economy in 2025 should reach 24%. But currently, the world’s digital economy is worth $30 trillion, which represents a 30% share in the global economy,” he added. 
According to the deputy minister, the digital economy’s share of gross domestic product has grown at an incredible pace in recent years.
