The world of technology changes rapidly. Existing older technologies become more sophisticated and a whole realm of new and emerging technologies are changing behaviors and everyday life at warp speed. AI, or artificial intelligence, is not limited to self-driving cars. AI is behind things we now take for granted – computer search engines, personal assistants like Siri®and Alexa®, ride-sharing apps and many more health care, industry and business applications that touch everyone’s life. Blockchain is a secure, continuously updated record of ownership, available for view by everyone to check on the security and veracity of ownership of items of value. Most people think of crypto-currency, one of the most common applications, but it also aids in the instant transfer of payments reducing settlement times in transactions.
