Details : Just as electricity transformed the way industries functioned in the past 150 years, #ArtificialIntelligence - the science of programming cognitive abilities into machines - has the power to drastically change how businesses function in the next 100 years. #AI has the ability to completely transform our lives & how our society functions.

However, #AI is no longer science fiction, but is a reality! #AI is being harnessed to enable such things as home robots, robo-taxis & mental health chatbots to make you feel better. Already, AI has been embedding itself in daily life — such as powering the brains of digital assistants Siri & Alexa.

The U.S. & China are leading the world in #AI investments. In 2017 alone, US investments in #AI ranged from $15 billion to $23 billion, with Asia (mainly China) clocking in at $8 billion to $12 billion, & Europe stood at $3 billion to $4 billion. Tech giants are the primary investors in #AI, pouring in between $20 billion and $30 billion, with another $6 billion to $9 billion from others, such as venture capitalists and private equity firms. #AI is on the cusp of a boom!

Discover the exciting world of #AI, how can you & your organization adopt it & how can you take the lead in #AI with Mr. Prasun Nandy, Partner at PwC India, at our #AIFriday Lecture meet on 17th August, 6:30 pm onwards, at AILAB'S Sec V Complex, near RDB Cinemas.
