Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most transformative forces of our times. While there may be debate whether AI will transform our world in good or evil ways, something we can all agree on is that AI would be nothing without big data.
Even though AI technologies have existed for several decades, it’s the explosion of data—the raw material of AI—that has allowed it to advance at incredible speeds. It’s the billions of searches done every day on Google that provide a sizable real-time data set for Google to learn from our typos and search preferences. Siri and Cortana would have only a rudimentary understanding of our requests without the billions of hours of spoken word now digitally available that helped them learn our language.
