5 companies that are dominating with machine-learning
No, we’re not talking about sentient killer robots, and yes, AI is more than self-driving smart cars and chat bots. Natural language processing, deep learning, and machine learning are changing the way businesses are interacting with customers and how platforms are serving users.

Of course, let’s not forget Alexa, Prime Air, and Amazon Go, which all function through AI algorithms, while rumors of an AI fashion designer are feeding the Amazon AI flame.
