Today Artificial Intelligence or AI is one of the hottest buzzwords in the industry. The core definition of AI is a machine which is capable of thinking like humans and then display decision- making behavior. The intelligence can be divided into several processes such as decision making, learning, language processing and visual perception.

Stanford researcher John McCarthy coined this term in 1956 during The Dartmouth Conference, where the core mission of the AI field was defined.

AI involves many fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics, and Philosophy etc.

So how do you use AI in your everyday life?

One popular example are the digital personal assistants on our mobile phones like Siri, Google Now, and Amazon Echo etc. They use AI to help find useful information when asked questions like “What is my schedule for today?”, “Wake me up at 6 AM tomorrow morning”. Large retailers like Amazon are also trying to predict your next purchases and using Machine Learning to recommend new items to you.
