AI applications, not definitions: demystifying the current landscape - Grit Daily


AI isn't science fiction or a future technology we're waiting to adopt. It is, right now, affecting every aspect of our daily lives, and that includes how we develop applications, products, and services.

In 2016, every company desperately wanted to latch on to artificial intelligence (AI).
