Pandemic: AI, Disruptive Technologies and Value Creation | Makers Forum
When speaking of technologies that will transform the way we live, work and play in the near future, artificial intelligence certainly still remains a key trend.
Artificial intelligence rapidly analyzes and interprets the world's data with disruptive technology, replacing human work like never before.
In addition, artificial intelligence is currently in the stage of upgrading from "industrialization of AI" to "industries integrating AI", with itself becoming a new productive force of the digital economy and accelerating the integration of existing production methods with big data, blockchain and other technologies. emlyon business school has invited Professor Mélanie GILBERT to dig further into the disruptive technologies and value creation of artificial intelligence.
