    AI may favour incumbents not disruptors

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) may not be using reason, but they are undeniably effective in cutting costs and improving customer service, and gradually encroaching on ever-more areas of life and work. They also raise profound questions about law, audit, regulation, ethics, the future of employment and especially the standard of living.
