Global Bigdata Conference


The maturity of artificial intelligence (AI) is totally dependent on the explosion of both processing power and the underlying data volume and latency. It wasn't too long ago that the idea of AI was confined to Hollywood blockbusters or else the highly theoretical publications by MIT and other leading academic institutions. Indeed, most people are familiar with scenes from the likes of Minority Report and iRobot where hyper-intelligent machines have evolved to play a significant role in human life. But AI is no longer a product of science fiction. The rise of so-called smart machines is steadily growing to become a significant industry – supported by the availability and capability of powerful technology, the rise of big data and, crucially, the necessary human expertise and experience to bring this all together.
