Artificial Intelligence is Transformational because it Inspires Imagination.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) environment has risen from data scientists to reach the boardroom as a pre-curser to digital transformation. Clayton Christensen, author of The Innovator’s Dilemma, a disruptive technology adds to the premise writing AI “enables new markets to emerge” to disrupts an existing market status-quo.
Science fiction becomes fact — Teleportation helps to create live musical performance by University of Plymouth

Teleportation is most commonly the stuff of science fiction and, for many, would conjure up the immortal phrase “Beam me up Scotty”.
However, a new study has described how its status in science fact could actually be employed as another, and perhaps unlikely, form of entertainment – live music.
Dr Alexis Kirke, Senior Research Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research at the University of Plymouth (UK), has for the first time shown that a human musician can communicate directly with a quantum computer via teleportation.

Picture any film scene set in “the future.” More often than not, it’s a futurescape populated by flying cars, efficient robots, and teleportation. These dazzling fictions color our perception of what progress looks like. And this means it’s the inventions that come with bells and whistles that grab our attention in real life too — think SpaceX’s Starlink mission or the Asimo robot from Honda.
Technological propositions that are big, glitzy, and out of this world (sometimes literally) are those that attract the accolades and the headlines. And whilst such innovations are indeed incredible, truly impactful progress often comes from humbler technology. As we face the challenge of building a better future post-crisis, it’s the simple technology that should be getting us excited.

Hitching a ride on the Mars Pathfinder mission, the Sojourner rover arrived at the Red Planet on July 4, 1997. The mission was designed to demonstrate a low-cost method for delivering a set of science instruments to Mars, and served as the foundation for the Mars rovers of today.
