There are days when we’d prefer for someone else to do the thinking for us – and these days, that wish is not so far-fetched! One of the more opportunistic developments has been the field of artificial intelligence (“AI”). With the overwhelming amount of data available to help us assess and evaluate matters, using AI to rapidly digest information presents a potential sea change in many industries. From language translation to diagnosing and treating cancer, it’s applications are far-reaching.
We’re excited to share our most recent whitepaper titled “The reality behind Artificial Intelligence” authored by Technology Risk Control Manager Tushar Nandwana. In this paper, Tushar explains the various forms of AI and how they function, describes several examples of AI and offers a view of risks and concerns.
