And our Quote of the day: 

“As ‘Artificial Intelligence’ become more intelligent and prevalent, there’s a natural fear that grows within us. We can fear the dystopia brought on by not implementing AI correctly in our society. We can fear that AI will replace all of our jobs. We can fear our addictions to these technologies. Alternatively, we can try to understand it all and step back to really evaluate the cost and benefits of implementing AI in our workplaces. Using understanding, each one of us can help to shape our own future with AI.”
