Artificial Intelligence AI and machine learning are revolutionizing our economy and our society. AI based systems are finding applications in marketing, sales, healthcare, finances, education, transportation, logistics and even in scientific research. Machine learning, a technology that is at the core of recent AI developments, enables computers to learn from experience and opens the way to even more radical changes in the way we interact with machines. Soon, AI based systems may replace a significant fraction of human workers in many jobs and functions. At the same time though these systems also create new jobs and opportunities.
