AI in 2017 is where mobile was in 2008

Practical applications of AI solve real problems and can be developed now. Three years ago such products would not have been possible to build — except by companies as big as Google. Today, small teams — thanks to a raft of new tools and innovations both open source and, ironically, from big tech — are developing practical AI quickly and at low-cost.

All Turtles CEO Phil Libin says this change resembles a similar shift that led to the explosion of all things mobile a decade ago. “AI in 2017 is where mobile was in 2008,” Libin explains. “Everyone is starting to talking about it and it’s starting to get slightly annoying. We know that we’re not going to talk about it five years from now.”

Libin goes on to describe how AI will change the fabric of everything.
