"AI is actually going to empower people in their jobs and make their jobs less mechanical and tedious and more creative and human," - AI expert Inma Martinez, Feb 2018

AI, machine learning and cloud capabilities can increase the potential for businesses to migrate from on-premises legacy systems to hybrid, mobile-friendly and cloud-based infrastructures.

Through deploying AI you will gain insights into customers, markets and competitors, and automate processes in almost every facet of operations. The dangers of adopting AI solutions are in the spaces around regulatory compliance, law, privacy and ethics.
