Systems that learn

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, in which augmented human intelligence creates a confluence of the physical, digital and biological realms, is underway. 1 We are now living through the “end of code,” moving from a coding world to a learning world. In the coding world, the aim was to understand what businesses wanted to do and produce programs that executed those requests. The learning world is characterized by systems that have three essential elements: knowledge, skills and experience.
