Dear Cognitive RoundUp Readers,

With only a couple of days left of 2018, we are happy to present the latest 8 articles from the expanding world of AI that gained the most attention over the last 7 days on the Twitter page of SwissCognitive – The Global AI Huband also one of the most read articles of 2018. 

In this week's Global Edition, you can read about a general overview of AI in 2018, as well as some predictions for 2019. Very importantly, one of the articles addresses a key concern on how the education system will need to prepare for changes in the future which are expected to transform the employment landscape. 

Very interesting reads again, as throughout the past year. Let's continue monitoring the world of AI in 2019 too and keep sharing & discussing what has been achieved already & what incredible potentials cognitive technologies still hold for us in the future.   

We are wishing you a fantastic new year! 

Kind regards,

The SwissCognitive Team
