Today, new technologies allow data to be generated and stored in supercomputers. Using algorithms, it can be sorted and interpreted faster than humanly possible to make complex decisions. The goal of artificial intelligence (AI) is to enable computers to think and act as humans would. New computing powers and infra structure allow for unprecedented amounts of data to be made available, and machine learning and deep learning interpret them for complex and innovative tasks.
