A very interesting question came up at one of my webinars. Concerns were raised about how professionals do or would feel about an artificial intelligence based machine/device subject matter expert watching over your shoulder and making recommendations and suggestions.
That is a very interesting and quite intriguing question. The general opinion appears to be - NOT VERY HAPPY. Just something to think about that might come of age in the next several years.
In June 2018 while speaking at his daughter's high school graduation, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts warned the students and audience to “Beware the robots.” He went on to say "Artificial intelligence can change leaders into followers.“ This is just one example of multiple warnings about emerging technologies that have come out.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an up and coming technology. Forrester Research projected about a 300% increase in AI investment in 2017 over what we saw in 2016. Forbes recently posted that the AI market will grow to $47 billion in 2020. That is from $8 billion in 2016.
When Vladimir Putin comes out and states - Whoever Leads in Artificial Intelligence Will Rule the World - that clearly speaks to the importance to keeping up with this emerging technology!

In the next few years there will be an estimated 1.5 computer science jobs created in the United States. Each year, the U.S. graduates 40,000 computer science majors.
That means . . . between now and 2022 the U.S. will graduate about 240,000 computer science majors. In that same period of time the U.S. is expected to generate 1.5 million computer science related jobs.
Those chilling stats cast doubt on the U.S. dominance in the coming era of rapid technology advancement!
New technologies are being developed constantly in labs at universities and companies around the world. Determining which of these technologies are poised to transform business and our critical infrastructure is always a challenge. The following technologies are at the top of the Q2-2016 hot list.
Blog posts about each of these technologies(pro & con) will be made on a regular basis.
