Artificial Intelligence (AI) may be the single most disruptive technology the world has seen since the Industrial Revolution.

It’s going to improve not only how business is done, but the kind of work we do – and unleash new levels of creativity and ingenuity.
The common, and recurring, view of the latest breakthroughs in artificial intelligence research is that sentient and intelligent machines are just on the horizon. Machines understand verbal commands, distinguish pictures, drive cars and play games better than we do. How much longer can it be before they walk among us?
