What type of boss would put their complete trust in an AI system? What kind of person would dismiss in favor of drawing their conclusions? Many executives still trust their instincts above the machine when making high-level strategic judgments. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Customer personalization, sales recommendations, financial portfolio advice, aviation crash avoidance, semi-autonomous cars, and medical screening are examples of where AI is beginning to play a vital role.
