Artificial intelligence (AI) was centre stage at the World Economic Forum in China. At least 20 of the 56 companies selected for the organisation's Technology Pioneers programme are using AI in some way with applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to advertising technology. A branch of AI, machine learning, is dedicated to the ability of a machine to learn something without having to be programmed for that specific thing. It enables computers to improve their performance automatically over time by being fed data and information in the form of observations and real-world interactions – like a toddler learning about the world around them. Answering whether the animal in a photo is a cat or a dog, spotting obstacles in front of a self-driving car, spam mail detection, and speech recognition of a YouTube video to generate captions are just a few examples out of a plethora of predictive machine learning models.
