Artificial intelligence (AI) seems to be everywhere these days. From Amazon’s Alexa’s natural language processing AI that answers questions via voice commands, Netflix’s machine-learning AI that suggests what people should watch next, and Uber’s robotics AI that’s starting to drive people around, AI has become a part of our daily lives.

When it comes to AI in the workplace, 38 per cent of enterprises are already using AI and this number is expected to increase to 62 per cent by 2018, according to a 2016 survey of 235 respondents by tech company Narrative Sciences. And 33 per cent expect their jobs will become augmented by robotics and AI, according to a 2016 survey of more than 10,000 business and HR leaders from 140 countries by Bersin by Deloitte.
