Cook emerged as the industry’s “most imaginative” leader, followed by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
Advances in AI mean IBM’s Watson can do more than just read your personality. It defeated humans at Jeopardy in 2011, and has grown to be able to assist in caring for patients, suggest a cure for cancer and maybe even replace our jobs.
