AI, Robots & the Future

Robots and AI are already real products and services. But will they take our jobs? Or even take over? In this video I discuss these questions in a pragmatic fashion, as well as how we may usefully define “artificial intelligence”. Also covered are cloud AI services, and the role AI in digital transformation.
