Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an integral part of our lives whether we realize it or not. When we book a ticket online, scroll through a newsfeed on social media, or go look at the recommendations from an e-commerce or video streaming site, we're dealing with an AI component in the background. Most chat assistants we encounter on websites or on our smartphones are driven by AI.
