Artificial intelligence, and with it robots and automation, is redefining business in unprecedented ways, with application in the Asia Pacific & Japan region leading the way in innovative and exciting ways. Is it a help or a hindrance? Promise or peril? Friend or foe? Or maybe a little bit of all, depending on how and why it is applied, who is applying it, and the ultimate end goals. The guests of the Hugh Thompson Show will explore with fun, fear and fascination the many layers of artificial intelligence and the role of cybersecurity in its application and potential to revolutionize global business.
