Andreas Wong's curator insight, March 27, 1:33 AM

Artificial Intelligence is quickly becoming a core part of technology for the future, being able to perform by 'learning' in environments with difficult tasks. Potential future uses for AI in the future include self-driving cars and possibly real-time language translation.

Chris Mackinga's curator insight, March 27, 3:41 AM

This article reviews an interesting topic however it was poorly written and, in my opinion, this takes away a lot from the ideas that are being discussed. It reviews information previously established and adds little to nothing new bar speculation, however intriguing the content itself is. Overall, I didn't like this article and wouldn't read it again.
