AI has become somewhat of a buzzword lately. When we think of AI, we often think of human-like robots which can mimic our behaviour (and potentially take over the world someday). However, although artificially intelligent robots do exist, the term AI typically applies to any self-learning machine that can analyse data and provide insights that make us smarter, more efficient and better at the things we do every day.
