Adapting to the changing behaviors brought about by COVID-19 means re-thinking the way we work, shop, and do business. Since an AI can read and synthesize vast data sets much faster than we can, it's being used to predict all kinds of things and applied in various fields including healthcare, finance, education, entertainment, etc. The big projects that you think are impossible today are actually possible in the near future.
AI enables machines to learn, think and act like humans. AI uses data, servers and algorithms to train machines for specific actions such as recognizing objects, reasoning, problem solving, planning, and perception. How to use AI as a part to build a software or a system that benefits us in the near future?
