Over the past year, Google has decided to switch gears from a mobile-first approach to an AI-first strategy. Though this change may seem odd since Google has focused primarily on mobile-first for close to a decade, it’s clear the adjustment means the company sees great potential for AI and machine learning based technology. And Google isn’t the only company out there talking about machine learning – Apple referred to the concept multiple times in a recent keynote.
As exciting as all this sounds, it can be difficult to understand what the transition means for you and your business. While we don’t know exactly how things are going to pan out, we know one thing for certain – AI is the way of the future, and you’d better do what you can to prepare for it.
