Machine learning, data analysis, and artificial intelligence are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our lives, and more central to the high-tech industry. These fields play a central role in many of the recent and upcoming revolutions in computing; for example, social networks, streaming video on demand, personal assistants (e.g., Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant), and self-driving cars. Alphabet’s Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt, went a step further at the 2016 Google Cloud Computing Conference in San Francisco when he said, “Machine learning and crowdsourcing data will be the basis and fundamentals of every successful huge IPO win in five years.”
