CalChamber Board Looks at Artificial Intelligence: Past, Present, Future

CalChamber Board member Kailesh Karavadra (left) of Ernst & Young LLP and Keith Strier, Ernst & Young advisory leader for artificial intelligence (AI), give board members a quick, animated presentation on the history, present applications and future uses of AI by both businesses and government. Pointing out that AI is not just one technology, but many, the two speakers provided examples of the explosive growth of interest in AI in just the last two years, the many innovations in the field, and the policy issues being raised as a consequence. “The world of linear thinking is done,” says Karavadra. “Exponentials and curves, up or down, is the reality of where we are.”
