By now you may have heard about the news that Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Netflix, Uber, Facebook, and many others are planning to invest billions of dollars in developing artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning technologies.
These technologies will be needed to improve our lives and, in turn, the lives of millions of people around the world.
It’s a bold statement, given that we have a long history of creating and sustaining jobs, and that the technologies are already making their way into the global economy.
