What is AI?

Artificial intelligence (more commonly known as AI) is field of study where machines are created to mimic human intelligence so they act and learn as a human brain does. Science fiction has always dreamed of a futuristic world where computers were so advanced they could do the jobs of humans. We are now seeing that reality take shape.

As robotics and artificial intelligence become more prevalent in our communities, we are seeing major social and economic disruptions. Some are positive, some are not, and some pose deep ethical questions.

What is data science?

Data science extracts value from data assets, allowing us to understand the past, better manage the present, and effectively plan for the future. It underpins artificial intelligence and plays a critical role in advancing industry, commerce, governance and research.
