Artificial Intelligence is the discipline of thinking machines. The field is growing dramatically with the proliferation of high powered computers into homes and businesses and especially with the growing power of smartphones and other mobile devices. 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. There could certainly be some disruption to many fields, and it may be painful to some people in many sectors of the economy.
