The future is Cognitive

The goal of machine learning is to enable computers to learn and excel at performing specific tasks. Examples of these tasks range from driving a car, recognizing a face in a picture, to improving a web search. It has also been argued that, through machine learning, we can get closer to achieving the overarching goal of human-level AI. In the future machine learning will play a significant role in many industries and institutions. The greater Zurich area is well positioned to expand its already leading position as an AI and machine learning technology hub. This vertical will look at the technological, medical, economic, socio-economic, and political dimensions of machine learning and AI.
