The Hype Behind "AI"


Is "Artificial Intelligence" really data "Augmented Intelligence"?

These days - we all collaborate and share massive amounts of data…because that growth was enabled by a massive surge of computing, leading to enable many new applications, once thought of unlikely/impossible or  too far away .   One of these is the  sudden emergence of so  called “AI” applications, which was preceded by “Big Data”. In reality, the term “Artificial Intelligence “ is a  misnomer or inaccurate  representation of what is happening. As such the public needs to  know what is the current excitement all about and what it really entails.

This talk will focus on the history, growth, enablement and applications of    this  new arena and  make an attempt to  paint perhaps a  proper picture of what to expect. Also it will touch upon many other aspects of “AI” and ways to cautiously approach/consider them.
