Salesforce Joins Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society


We are at an inflection point in the evolution of artificial intelligence. For decades, AI has been incubating in research labs and at the same time capturing popular imagination with science fiction portrayals of AI. The reality is that thanks to a convergence of increasing compute power, big data and algorithmic advances, AI is becoming mainstream and finding practical applications in nearly every facet of our personal lives. Facebook identifies which friends to tag in photos, algorithms are improving medical diagnosis and saving lives, and GPS-based apps are predicting traffic patterns to optimize driving routes. The AI revolution is also taking hold in our business lives.
