The minimum wage is rising in many parts of Canada, but it masks the impact of seismic changes to the agriculture, food and retail industries brought about by new technologies.
One down, two to go: Google’s artificial intelligence program AlphaGo wins the first game of Go against Chinese grandmaster player Ke Jie, in May 2017.
The artificial intelligence that beat a world master at the game of Go is now to be directed at more complex global problems. So what can we expect?
Ready for AI?
While there is currently interest interest in artificial intelligence, it offers limited achievements, such as the autonomous car. Tomorrow, machines will learn alone and forge solutions.
How can a machine understand who said what?
Important advances have been made in the areas of automatic language processing and emotional computing, and that could have big implications for business.
Google's AlphaGo victory over the human world champion shows how far things have come since DeepBlue.
Imagine a world where artificial intelligence is in control and humans are brink of extinction. What went wrong? What could we have done?

Born in the 1950s, the concept of an artificial neural network has progressed considerably. Today, known as "deep learning", its uses have expanded to many areas, including finance.
Several methods can teach an algorithm to learn. With more or less important datasets, which are or are not previously labeled and categorized.
The next step in human evolution.
Neuralink is probably a dangerous idea, but to the first person who fell into a firepit, so was fire.
Can technology help us to beat death?
How far would you go to better your life, to live longer, to beat death? And how much can technology help us in that quest?
The robot Berenson in 2015.
Robots are strange creatures, and not only because they might steal our jobs. We humans actually have good reason to be a little worried about these machines.
A universal basic income would enable people to embrace the gig economy and give them greater leverage in the jobs they choose.
