DataArt Releases White Paper on the Impact of AI in Extending Lifespan
Supply Chain Times reports on DataArt’s release of its Impact of AI in Extending Lifespan white paper. Anton Dolgikh, Head of AI, DataArt Europe, emphasizes the importance of discussions around the implications of increased life expectancy.
