Once artificial intelligence takes over task-based and calculative jobs, the invisible care work that underpins our offices, marketplaces and institutions could finally become more visible and valued.
The Achilles' heel of law technologies: training. Only 10% of such initiatives are aimed at law students, so how should this issue be managed to win the AI race?
Artificial intelligence can detect patterns in your shopping behaviour that can help retailers deliver better deals to you, and then suggest things you never even knew you wanted.
Technology is already changing how we live our lives and go about our days. Are we ready with collaborative planning processes so we are not taken by surprise by more profound change?
