These days, artificial intelligence is always in the news and on technology roadmaps, yet the idea of it is older than modern computing. So why the increased interest in it? Why has it suddenly become the next big thing and how should we expect it to make decision making easier?
This session:
- starts by looking at the history of modern AI, back to when Alan Turing first dreamed of machines
- considers why new data storage and processor hardware technologies are letting it take off
- suggests how it might shape the future of business analytics and the world we live in
