  By Mark Montgomery, Founder, CEO of Kyield  |  April 14, 2018 AI systems create value by converting human knowledge to digital form that can then be converted to other forms of energy, including kinetic. At the atomic level knowledge created by human intelligence and augmented by machine learning can be viewed and expressed as an extension of relativity discovered by Einstein more than a century ago. "Our concepts and laws of space and time can only claim validity insofar as they stand in a clear…
