Abstract: We live in an era defined by the explosion of artificial intelligence - AI. Commonly understood as a study and practice of making machines perform tasks typically associated with humans (e.g., problem solving, categorization, decision making, natural language processing), artificial intelligence utilizes such techniques as machine learning (wherein machines are trained to ex-tract useful patterns from data) and natural language processing (imbuing machines with the ability to parse and interpret human language).
Artificial intelligence is now almost everywhere. From driverless cars to chatbots, from face recognition to intelligent search engines, from stock trading to robot-concierges in avant-garde hotels. Artificial intelligence is gradually occupying more and more space in our daily lives, while powering entire sectors of the economy.
