AI and business communication – what can we expect?

AI stands for Artificial Intelligence, and it’s a slightly tricky topic. What we do know is that AI and business communication have developed a close relationship. And it seems built to last.

What is AI anyway?

But in the public consciousness AI manages to be at once ubiquitous and mysterious. Despite appearing in news stories and general conversation on a daily basis, there remains confusion about what AI actually is.

There are certainly helpful definitions of AI. Some experts even divide it into smaller categories. This has been done according to the technology’s scope, for example, with some classifying AI as either Artificial Narrow Intelligence, Artificial General Intelligence, or Artificial Super Intelligence.
