Why Should I Celebrate World AI Week?

Artificial intelligence is not going away anytime soon, it is only going to become increasingly prevalent throughout society. The expenditure on artificial intelligence is expected to increase between £27.2 billion and £35.6 billion by the year 2050! Due to this, it is more important than ever before to increase our understanding of artificial intelligence and explore how the field of artificial intelligence can be improved.

68% of large companies, 34% of medium companies and 15% of small companies have already adopted at least one form of artificial intelligence into their organisation – don’t get left behind!

“Within a few decades, machine intelligence will surpass human intelligence, leading to The Singularity – technological change so rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history.” – Ray Kurzweil
