Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and their applications continue to grow and evolve. AI technologies are now being deployed across almost every industry and sector, including transportation, healthcare, defence, finance and manufacturing. But what exactly are these technologies? How prevalent are they? And with AI developing so rapidly, how will International Standards respond to these challenges?

In this issue, we debunk the AI myths, explore the opportunities and explain why globally relevant standards are key.
