A recent acceleration of innovation in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made it a hot topic in boardrooms, government, and the media. But it is still early, and everyone seems to have a different view of what AI is.
Machine learning is a certain type of artificial intelligence that allows the development of systems that can learn without being programmed to do so, or with only minimum startup logic. The primary way in which machine learning works is that the system develops knowledge or intelligence in response to continual exposure to new data.
Inside machine learning’s hidden math.
AI Glossary is a semi-regular column diving into the oft-misunderstood fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence by way of their frequently imperfect jargon.

The World Economic Forum just published a fascinating article charting the growth of the European startup scene, contrasting it to the larger tech ecosystems of Silicon Valley and Asia. If you’re a European founder, you’ve got cause to be optimistic — funding is easier to get, there’s so much innovation happening here, and tech talent is everywhere.
Change is coming. And for most businesses, it can’t get here fast enough. But are you ready for better business intelligence? Here’s what to expect.
George Zarkadakis is a thought-leader in digital innovation, digital transformation, and most importantly for us, Artificial Intelligence. He’s now the Digital Lead at Willis Towers Watson, a world leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, and he has even written a book on AI, called In Our Own Image: Will artificial intelligence save or destroy us?. Zarkadakis took some time to talk to us about how AI was being implemented in businesses today, and how it will change our industry of the future.
One of the most significant quality of our human brain is that separates us from the animals is our unique ability to predict things in the future. The animals on the other hand can only predict conditions like weather changes, hibernation and pack hunting. So, when we meet two people we can often predict what happens next, as we possess intuitive abilities out of a lifetime of experience.
