With the quantum leap in progress of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the world of technology, are we ready to be controlled by machines or can we co-exist with them in the process? Is the threat to replace humans imminent? How would it affect human society? What are the opportunities and potential problems presented? What are the extents and limits of its usage? Will AI necessarily improve the quality of human life? How would developments in AI impact the Philippine business environment? Are the government and the business sectors prepared to cope with possible job losses due to automation?
