Artificial Intelligence is one of the hottest buzzwords in business and technology today. AI is responsible for much of the digital innovation of the past decade as industries scramble to take advantage of the ever-growing amounts of data being generated each year.

But what is Artificial Intelligence? The definition of AI is fluid and changing over time – but at its core AI refers to building machines that are capable of thinking like a human would. In this presentation, we explore the concept of Artificial Intelligence, and examine the effect it has had on industries today, and what the future of AI holds.
