“AI has played a major role in the digitalization of society, as it has enabled us to collect, process, and analyse large amounts of data at a faster rate than ever before. This has led to the creation of new technologies, improved business processes, and greater efficiency in many industries.

Thanks to machine learning and deep learning, AI applications can learn from data and results in near real time, analysing new information from many sources and adapting accordingly, with a level of accuracy that's invaluable to business”.
