At the beginning of 2016, the world's most sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) beat World Champion Lee Sedol at a game called'Go' – a chess-like board game with more move combinations than there are atoms in the universe. Before this defeat, Go had been considered too complicated for even the most complex computers to beat the top humans. It was a landmark moment in the development of ever-more sophisticated AI technology. But the future of AI holds more than simply board game victories. It is rapidly finding its way into all aspects of modern life, prompting the promise of a'Fourth Industrial Revolution'.
