Machine Learning 101

Heralded by many as the fourth industrial revolution, artificial intelligence has inspired countless news articles, novels, and films. With this deluge of information comes hopes and aspirations, fears and misconceptions – some justified and others not. How can we make sense of it all? Join Amii as we pull back the curtain on AI and lay a pragmatic foundation for what AI is, what it isn’t, and how you can begin to think about the place of AI in your business.
