What is the future for AI careers?

In its latest Wonderful Workplaces video, Daniel Marks meets Kortical, AKA 'Kings of AI', for insights into how artificial intelligence has evolved and why it's such an exciting career choice.

Watch now: Alex Allan, CTO and co-founder, Kortical, talks about the future of AI.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasises the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. And it looks set to be one of the biggest fields of the future as its business value impact grows. Could this be an exciting career choice for you?

We’re now in an exciting place where AI is living up to the hype that everyone thought it could do, We’re seeing massive business value and it’s only going to get higher as AI techniques get more advanced.

- Alex Allan, CTO and co-founder, Kortical

Watch the video to learn more about:

- How AI has evolved

After a couple of false starts from the 1950s onwards, AI is finally living up to the hype.

- How AI is being used nowadays

Kortical is involved in AI projects from manufacturing to healthcare, such as working with the NHS to predict demand, and working with broadcasters to understand whether a programme needs to be re-commissioned.


- The scope of AI machines

With the current generation of AI we’re getting to the point where it can perform better than humans at certain narrow tasks.

- What an AI role involves

Part of the process of an AI project is to define what the business case is and how the AI decision is going to have an impact.

- Dealing with apocalyptic ‘Rise of the Robots’ views

A common science fiction theme, Allan believes it’s unlikely to be an actual threat as long as we ensure intelligent solutions continue to focus on the outcomes we want.

Kings of AI

Kortical is an online platform that uses AI to create AI. It helps data scientists reach world class solutions in far less time than it would have taken to try one machine learning approach outside of Kortical.

Dan Matthews, founder and CEO, Daniel Marks, comments: "We have been working in partnership with Kortical for a number of years now and are consistently impressed with the depth and scope of experience and knowledge they have in an area that is understood by so few yet used by so many already."
