The future of Artificial Intelligence (AI) depends on many factors. Advancements in computing power and the implementation of regulations are just two external influences that could significantly impact what AI will be able to do in the years to come. Before we get to the exciting future uses, however, it’s important to understand exactly where we are today. And that’s not as clear as it should be.
There are a lot of misconceptions about AI, machine learning, and deep learning. Most people don’t have an accurate sense of the differences or relationships between them. As a result, we often see people use the term AI whenever they refer to machines doing seemingly autonomous work. This misuse of the terminology is based on misinformation and a lack of awareness. But this is only part of the problem.
