Artificial Intelligence: Expansion, Adoption and the Value for Business Intelligence

According to Mark Cuban, “The world’s first trillionaires are going to come from somebody who masters AI.” And as we continue to encounter stories and predictions about AI, we’re seeing how it will fundamentally change a variety of industries on an almost day-to-day basis.

It will then present the information to business users, not just highly trained data scientists, in a format suitable for them to understand. In understanding the contents of extremely large numbers of documents, AI can take a huge workload off human reviewers and help them do their jobs faster and more efficiently.
