Artificial Intelligence with Carolina Milanesi
Carolina Milanesi discussed how the major companies in the world from Google to Baidu are approaching artificial intelligence & the distinction with the Internet of things in the 2nd part of our conversation.

Carolina Milanesi from Creative Strategies & Techpinions joined us for a two parter discussion from Huawei to artificial intelligence & Internet of things. In the second part, we discussed artificial intelligence, Internet of things and how the major companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google & Baidu are approaching the technology through their own core competencies and where it is heading.
