This week, IBM’s Watson opened new pathways for ALS research when it discovered 5 new genes linked to ALS. Last month, Google Translate took a quantum leap forward in accuracy when it quietly replaced its existing system with an Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) based deep learning neural network. Amazon Web Services (AWS) now offers AI capabilities for businesses of all sizes and Facebook recently released its image recognition AI research to the public. 2017 is the year that artificial intelligence makes the leap from experimental conversation piece to battle-tested business tool. The only question is whether you’re prepared to use these tools to your advantage… because your competitors will. Open the pod bay doors, HAL. The future is here and it’s open for business.
