Few emerging fields of technology have generated as much excitement in recent years as AI. Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to be one of the most disruptive classes of technologies over the next 10 years. This is in large part driven by advances in computational power, the volume, velocity and variety of data, as well as in deep neural network (DNN) methods, natural language processing (NLP) technologies, a connected globe and accelerating returns. AI methods and technologies are posed to bring transformative change to societies and industries world-wide.
The game-changing nature of AI and its role as a major driver of innovation, future growth, and competitiveness are internationally recognized.
