#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can spot patterns that humans can't. But they still can't explain, say, what caused one object to collide with another. The concept of AI involves other subsets such as machine learning and deep learning. Many AI experts predict that machines may outperform humans at every task within 45 years. Self driving cars hurtling along the highway and weaving through traffic have less understanding of what might cause an accident than children who have just learned to walk.

What America's largest technology firms are investing in

#artificialintelligence

WHEN CORPORATE bosses want to impress investors they increasingly reach for the i-word. Mentions of "innovation" during the earnings calls of S&P500 firms have almost doubled in the past decade. And no other sector talks about it as much as the technology companies do. For Hewlett-Packard, a printer and personal-computer maker, innovation has on occasion become what location is to estate agents and education to Tony Blair: so important it has to be said three times in quick succession.
