Tackling our big AI challenge

By lllah R. Nourbakhsh, PhD Applying AI in the real world is no simple task.

Something funny happened on Wall Street this week, but almost no one is laughing. After seeming to prove that it was nearly impervious to any threat, the market suddenly—and dramatically—moved south. We won’t include the numbers here; every investor knows not just the impact on the major indices, but how that shift has impacted your personal holdings. And yet, for any investor who is in this game for the long haul, lower prices are nothing but a pleasant surprise. That’s especially true ...
