AI is Here to Stay: Are You Prepared?
Machine Learning. Deep Learning. Data Mining. Predictive Analytics. Natural Language Processing.
These are the buzzwords used to describe the pivotal artificial intelligence (AI) space. Companies in every industry, from automotive and electronics to financial services, health care and life sciences, are working to deploy these advanced technology methods in order to bring their innovations to the next level. AI can help pathologists identify diseases, and physicians better assess brain health. It can help bankers automate back-office processes, create more lifelike chatbots, and improve fair lending practices. It can process and collect data more efficiently, protect from cyberattacks, and improve driver safety. As with any disruptive technology, however, this AI race to the moon comes with its share of risks and challenges. Are you prepared to address the various issues that this new technology may bring?
