Just as electricity transformed the way industries functioned in the past century, artificial intelligence — the science of programming cognitive abilities into machines — has the power to substantially power innovation and change society in the coming years. AI is being harnessed to enable such things as home robots, robo-taxis and chatbots to keep you company. AI also plays a role in the banking, treasury and investment management functions that we all work in. Robots are developed with AI that brings them closer to human level intelligence. Machine learning has been utilised to train computers that beat the best chess and weiqi grandmasters. In daily life, AI powers the brains of digital assistants Siri and Alexa. It lets consumers shop and search online more accurately and efficiently, among other tasks that people take for granted.
What are the upcoming developments in the world of AI? What kind of innovations and impact will there be on the business world? How do other companies handle the journey? What does it mean for the financial industry?
