While we've witnessed the rise of the Internet, smart phones, and a variety of consumer services like content streaming and online banking, most companies haven't yet embraced methodologies like lean startup, design thinking, agile engineering, or technologies like cloud architectures, IoT or machine learning.

Machine learning, and a more advanced technology called deep learning, are types of artificial intelligence that allow a computer to learn information based on the data it is given.
