AI is coming! Investors: Are you ready?

  Artificial intelligence—or AI—is either poised to save the world… or destined to doom it. It all depends on who you talk to on any given day. Proponents of AI see emerging technologies such as machine learning and big data mining as the key to a future in which life is easier, smarter, and faster. Naysayers fear economic disruption, unemployed workers, and a world that puts machines in control. Like religion, it’s a debate that is nearly impossible to win. The reason? AI wil...
