Does New Tech + Leadership = The Future?

If 2016 was the year artificial intelligence entered the general conversation, 2017 might be the year machine learning follows suit. SAP co-founder Hasso Plattner discussed it in a keynote earlier this year, plenty of other big names have announced ventures into the space, and a pair of industry analysts have published the first major book on the subject. The Mathematical Corporation: Where Machine Intelligence and Human Ingenuity Achieve the Impossible is the product of more than a year of research and reporting from Josh Sullivan and Angela Zutavern, SVP and VP, respectively, at Booz Allen Hamilton. The duo founded a data science practice back in 2011 — they originally focused on cloud analytics — and have evolved since then to jump into perhaps the hottest tech topic today. Before we go any further, a short note: Machine learning and artificial intelligence are, for the record, very different areas. Artificial intelligence is the subject of so much science-fiction over the last six or seven decades, and is the idea that machines can perform tasks, either physical or, increasingly, audibly.
