The next big area within the information and communication technology field is Artificial Intelligence (AI). The industry is moving to automate networks, cloud-based systems (e.g., Salesforce), databases (e.g., Oracle), AWS machine learning (e.g., Lex), and creating infrastructure that has the ability to adapt real-time to changes and learn what to anticipate in the future. It is an area of technology that is coming faster and penetrating more areas of business than any other in our history. AI will be used from the C-suite to the distribution warehouse floor. This book provides a working knowledge of AI’s current and future capabilities and the impact it will have on every business.
