Artificial intelligence (AI) has been implemented in multiple industries, from stock trading to hospitals, and Google has singled it out as the next big thing.

“Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are fundamentally reinventing the workforce.”
The finance sector, given its heavy reliance on mass amounts of numbers and data, is a prime candidate for the automation offered by intelligent learning systems.
