The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) was founded on the claim that human intelligence “can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it”. Some people consider AI a danger to humanity if it progresses unabatedly. Others believe that it is primarily a risk to employment. Join us on this journey as we attempt to understand and appreciate the potential of AI and explore its applications in medical science, banking and financial services, and other industries; and also evaluate its risk and rewards to humanity.
