We talk about artificial intelligence (AI), robots, and machine learning as if they’re coming soon, or are just some tech pipe dream.
They’re not. They’re here today.
In fact, a special report from Bank of America, Merrill Lynch predicts the global market for AI and robots will be just under $153 billion by 2020, and some industries will experience up to a 30% productivity increase through the use of those technologies alone.
That’s not a century from now; it’s not even a decade. It’s just three short years away. That can either terrify you if you’ve seen too many sci-fi films, or excite you if you consider the upside and benefits it could yield.
