Artificial intelligence (AI) is a pivotal technology that is bound to disturb the world in the way digital technology works and its effect on society, industry and education. AI has been with us for some time through existing technology, sometimes unknowingly, but other times very evidently.
It would be naïve to say we did not know that this was coming. In the past 15 years, Amazon, Google and others leveraged the use of machine learning to their commercial advantage using natural language processing on voluminous data to understand consumer behaviour and embedded use in their online services.
Nowadays, robotic devices work alongside humans in manufacturing and services. Driverless cars are being tested as we speak, and smart algorithms are working in the background to offer suggestions to internet users for products and services through the use of vast consumer data being captured.
