Imagine a world where robots ruled, where they could continuously improve their intelligence without human intervention or programming. It sounds like the future--but it's also our present reality. Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn't a new idea, though it's certainly developed a more forward-facing interface in recent years. In 2010, only $14.9 million was invested in the technology. But in 2014, a Bloomberg report showed that Venture Capitals had invested $309.2 million into AI startups for a 300% increase.
