Even services that tout themselves as “mobile first” often fall short of delivering novel functionality that boosts productivity and profit.

  5. The Future Of Machine Intelligence

    “Machine intelligence” is a topic that’s gotten a lot of press recently, from CNN predicting that robots will take your job, to Elon Musk’s concern that robots may take over the world.
