Of course, making the most of this information is the challenge to companies, and the team at AI.io has been at the forefront of this development. Led by six-time CEO Terence Mills, AI.io has broadened the scope of AI to businesses and enterprises, developing new and exciting ways of using this technology in a range of different environments. While many companies are investigating new ways of exploring the framing of AI, able to process millions of data points in seconds, AI.io has specialized in applying this ability to specific circumstances.
