Artificial Intelligence (AI) is nothing if not controversial. Whether the subject of scrutiny behind hair-raising advances in sex robots which was heavily reported the other week or the topic of the latest disgruntled executive voicing opinions about Elon Musk’s crusade against AI’s perceived perils, all eyes are on this new area in tech. While no one is yet absolutely sure of AI’s definitive path, one thing is certain. Value and expenditures pertaining to this area of emerging technology are on a definite upward curve. In fact, there is already a 70 percent growth in business value in AI just this far into 2018.
