In blockbuster movies, Artificial Intelligence has often been depicted as dangerous to humanity and detrimental to human growth. But in reality, it could be quite the opposite.

AI is the development of computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. In the last decade, it has really made an impact in our lives.

In just the last four years, the number of businesses adopting AI grew by 270% and it is estimated that by 2030, the AI industry could be worth more than $15 trillion.

But where exactly is AI being put to use? In Automobile manufacturing, for instance, collaborative AI systems are used to work alongside humans to grip and release objects along the assembly line in intricate and precise ways, with little human oversight. These robots could increase productivity by up to 20%.

In Big Data, the fastest AI processors operate at more than 10 trillion operations per second, and in the Internet of Things, AI connects us to each other and to all our devices like never before.

Those are just a few of the things AI achieves. If you want to find out more watch our video.
