Artificial Intelligence: Opportunity and Challenge

Today thanks to Artificial Intelligence – machines engineered to have human-like intelligence – Siri answers our questions, Safety Sense 2.0 drives our Toyotas, cultures are bridged by Google Translate, and AlphaGo is the world champion of Go, a 2500-year-old game with more move choices than the number of atoms in the observable universe.

“It is difficult to think of a major industry that AI will not transform. This includes healthcare, education, transportation, retail, communications, and agriculture.”

Andrew Ng: Founder Google Brain and deeplearning.ai; Adjunct Professor, Stanford University
