Only 10 years ago, the number of people who truly understood artificial intelligence across the entire world could fit into a large floor of a building. Fast forward to today and we believe AI is precipitating the next industrial revolution. Is that possible?
Could that small group really have caused this? Do we need more people driving this revolution and working to uncover novel applications? The obvious answer is yes, but it’s not so straightforward. We cannot buy or hire our way into AI by hiring a few data scientists, although that seems to be the trend these days. Data science programs at various universities are thriving, and now even business schools like Stanford Graduate School of Business are teaching data science courses.
