Retail

Amazon employs over 37,000 Robots. 37,000. They are on the verge of employing an army of drones to deliver. In the USA, in one example, a famous chain of chemists was able to predict women’s pregnancy, based on analysing their spending habits (big data). They were then targeted with pregnancy related ads, even before some [...]

Professor Stephen Hawking & Elon Musk, among other great minds talk about their worry of the “singularity”.
