This Video Explores the Ubiquitous World of AI and Its Impact on Human Life

The technology seems to be becoming nearly ubiquitous. Isn't it time you truly understood what it is?

Everyone is talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI) today. But figuring out exactly what it is and how and when it is going to have an impact in our lives, is a whole other story.

As we approach 2020, the AI market is projected to reach $70 billion, according to the global mobile network trade body, GSMA. It seems that artificial intelligence is becoming more ubiquitous, popping up nearly everywhere and in everything.

Many people fear artificial intelligence but is it really that scary? In this helpful video, Interesting Engineering explains it all in terms you can understand.

Simply put, AI is a branch of computer science that deals with the stimulation of intelligent behavior in computers. What does this mean for us, humans?

It means that we can now be supported by better machines - machines that can adapt and learn to provide us with better, more personalized services.

From chatbots online to detecting tumors, these AI functions that we seem to fear so much, only seem to be improving our processes, our environments and basically our lives. So is it really worth fearing them? We think not.

If done correctly and with diligence, AI will only make our existence better as it has done so far. So go on! Welcome that new AI!
