    A couple of us stopped by the Accelerate DSM event at the Iowa Events Center on Wednesday. Mike Colwell, who runs the Greater Des Moines Partnership's Square One DSM accelerator and has a history in angel investing, spoke on the impending "Fourth Industrial Revolution" of artificial intelligence and deep learning, as well as how Central Iowans can ride this wave of innovation into the future.
