Once a figment of the imagination, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now establishing itself in our everyday lives. Organizations are now invested more than ever before. According to Stanford University’s inaugural 2017 AI index report, there has been a 14x increase in the number of active AI startups as well as a 6x increased investment in these by venture capitalists since the year 2000.
