Artificial Intelligence is now a big part of every IT service and device delivered to consumers.

Artificial intelligence software is assisting people in most every discipline. The many functions of AI are considered by some to be threatening many human jobs across multiple industries, however, our view at CTOvision is the contributions of AI will be far more positive to humanity overall.
