The rise of intelligent machines has been predicted by science fiction writers and futurists for centuries. Those predictions have begun to come true in recent years. As artificial intelligence (AI) evolves, the world as we know it is changing rapidly. AI has come a long way in a short period of time. At the beginning of AI research, the focus was on developing machines that could think and reason like humans. In the end, it became apparent that this was not the most effective way to utilize AI technology. Human abilities were augmented and complemented instead by creating machines that could complement them. There are many ways in which artificial intelligence is used today.
