The future of AI relies heavily on its ability to learn without the assistance of humans. Huge advances have been made in recent years in the pursuit of developing AI that can learn, reason and self-correct, but there is still a long way to go. It’s being used to develop the first generation of driverless vehicles; to improve cybersecurity and to allow robots to perform tasks in places humans simply can’t go.
Some estimates predict that UK GDP will be over 10% higher in 2030 as a result of AI. That’s the equivalent of £232 billion, making it a huge commercial opportunity.
