Artificial Intelligence will change the way many industries create and deliver their products and services in the future, and energy provision is one of them. A new study from consultancy Roland Berger predicts that AI can reap efficiency gains of a fifth in utilities within five years, yet less than a quarter ...
Although there is no simple, clearly agreed on definition of artificial intelligence, there is probably no-one who would call either of the above pieces of software (air conditioning and tax calculation) artificial intelligence. artificial intelligence is typically reserved for things that are either computers doing ...

This story contains spoilers for season 1 of Westworld, and episode 1 of season 2. Westworld is back, and I'm more confused than ever.
