AI is transforming our daily lives, in ways both visible and transparent, and also may transform our businesses and industries, research, even entertainment... and the rate of change is growing. This presentation--part 2 of our "AI April"--will share many current, diverse examples of AI's impact in business and society, and will close with how we can expect things to continue advancing and accelerating. We're at the beginning of a transformation, a revolution--and soon, we'll be surrounded with intelligent systems, autonomous devices, smart infrastructure, and more. This is inevitable, not fantasy--and we'll help you and your company/organization embrace and leverage this revolution.
