While Artificial Intelligence (AI) is perhaps one of the most complex technologies currently under development, the results of current AI initiatives are incredibly fun and really easy to use. Whether or not they have achieved practicality, I will let you decide, but I promise you will have fun in the process!
Many people tend to fall asleep 💤 to phrases like algorithmic bias, intelligent retrieval, and knowledge engineering when discussing the current methods used to achieve AI, but I’ve found that simply playing with the end product of these initiatives can bestow an understanding that goes far beyond these boring, complex and overused phrases.
So here we will outline ten incredibly fun AI tools that you can try right now. Besides being a great way to kill boredom, they will also give you a greater understanding of the current state of AI. Without any phrases. 😊
