In part one of this four part interview series, James Manyika, co-chair and a director of the McKinsey Global Institute sat down with Professor Stuart Russell to talk about how artificial intelligence (AI) can make our lives better, such as helping to accelerate scientific breakthroughs dramatically, improving education around the globe, and “putting together a complete picture… beyond the capabilities of the human mind.””
