Dig Deeper Into Artificial Intelligence — Artificial Intelligence (AI) was once a far-fetched figment of our collective imagination. But technology has come a long way since then, and now we have devices that can answer questions about everything from where to eat dinner, and how to get to the nearest gas station, to what books we should read. As our technology grows more refined the line between artificial and real continues to blur. In January 2015, experts in the field signed an open letter to protect mankind from machines, reminding humanity to tread lightly while developing really smart machines. Today, read up on artificial intelligence. Learn about the exciting possibilities and the sobering edges around them. Share your findings with others, and keep an eye out for developments in the coming years. The more informed we are, the more we can collectively make thoughtful decisions on the direction of intelligent machines for a long time to come.
