The raw computing power we have now places us on the precipice of mainstream breakthroughs on a daily basis. But what does it all mean?

Fifty years ago, we would have needed computers the size of a warehouse to do what we do today on our smartphones. Defining terms such as AI and ML, and what it’s going to do for businesses and society, can be difficult. It is important for everyone to understand some of these basic terms, because we will be seeing them used everywhere.
