Most people associate artificial intelligence with IBM's Deep Blue playing chess against a world champion or Watson winning a Jeopardy competition, but AI is becoming a part of everyday life. This volume explores the applications of cutting-edge AI technology, incorporating examples particularly relevant to teens. It is used in facial recognition software in social media platforms, digital assistants on mobile devices, and fraud detection related to financial transactions. Autonomous vehicles and smart power grids are in development. The potential drawbacks of artificial intelligence, such as loss of jobs, privacy concerns, and bias in algorithms are also examined.
