If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …

Observations of traffic participants and their environment enable humans to drive road vehicles safely. However, when being driven, there is a notable difference between having a non-experienced vs. an experienced driver. One may get the feeling, that the latter one anticipates what may happen in the next few moments and considers these foresights in his driving behavior. To make the driving style of automated vehicles comparable to a human driver in the sense of comfort and perceived safety, the aforementioned anticipation skills need to become a built-in feature of self-driving vehicles. This article provides a systematic comparison of methods and strategies to generate this intention for self-driving cars using machine learning techniques.
Deep learning technology has impacted almost every other industry. Deep Learning is helping businesses associated with sports to expand.

Software bots can successfully automate routine and repetitive tasks to increase business productivity, but on their own, are unable to provide depth or insight into what tasks are actually being performed. Using the latest in machine learning, robotic process automation is breathing new life into bot capabilities and opening up new doors for enhanced business productivity. Across the enterprise, robotic process automation (RPA) is increasingly handling routine and time-consuming tasks and challenging how businesses operate. This form of digital transformation is already showing a significant return on investment for early adopters, and the switch from legacy business systems to the integration of RPA technology allows enterprises to become more competitive, efficient and flexible. In the past, RPA tools were successful at executing specifically defined tasks, but limited in the sense that they could not adjust to changing conditions or learn from experience.
