Understanding Artificial Intelligence
“Just as electricity transformed almost everything 100 years ago, today I actually have a hard time thinking of an industry that I don’t think AI will transform in the next several years,”
Coursera co-founder and Stanford University professor Andrew Ng famously said. He’s being proven right, with 86% of CEOs seeing artificial intelligence as a mainstream technology and over 90% of leading businesses investing in it on an ongoing basis.*
But what even is AI and how did it come to be? Will it ever turn into a Skynet type of situation or are Alexa and Siri the closest thing we’ll ever have to superintelligence? What are its benefits for industries and individuals? And what are its limitations – if any? We’ve gathered some deep dives from our blog to help you get your bearings, plus real-life applications from other corners of the web for inspiration.
