More Than 1 Million Steam Users Now Have A VR Headset: Here’s Which Ones

Whether you realise it or not, we are entering a new and unprecedented age: one driven largely by artificial intelligence. Up until very recently, artificial intelligence was of a very narrow sort. Put simply, it could do certain things, like arithmetic, very well. But other things, like speech recognition and complex decision-making, were left to humans. Nowadays, computing power has reached a stage where machines can learn for themselves – and the implications are sure to be felt in every area of the economy.
