A Crash Course in Artificial Intelligence
AI technology has been compared to the invention of electricity. When we were able to harness the power of electricity, we entered a new era of human productivity and advancement. AI promises to do the same, enriching all areas of our lives, such as medicine, transportation, entertainment, and manufacturing.
AI-expert Andrew Ng views AI as an intelligent system with the potential to benefit everyone as long as we focus on how it can make society better.
These improvements aren’t going to take away our jobs. Rather, they will give us an opportunity to make the work that we do more productive, more meaningful, and safer. This is the future that AI promises us.
