Video: A Brief History of AI, from Dreamforce 2017

Most media we see about artificial intelligence tends to treat it as a sort of magical black box. Those stories stress that AI is capable of producing staggering outcomes, but they never actually mention how those outcomes happen. And while, yes, parts of AI can really be opaque even to the people creating them (think about the actual nodes in a neural net, for example), this black boxing of AI contributes to a lot of pervasive myths.

Our CEO Robin Bordoli spent a little time at Dreamforce dispelling 5 of those myths. In this talk, you’ll learn how and why AI finally exited its long winter, what ingredients truly power artificial intelligence, and why more data can be more powerful than even the smartest algorithms.
