Happy Wednesday Everyone!
In the past I found it very creepy that I would be searching for something on Google, then a few seconds later I'd be on Facebook wishing someone a Happy Birthday and I'd see an advertisement for something I was just looking at.
However, recently I have been very impressed with a number of streaming services and the fact that as long as I'm attaching accurate ratings to the things I watch, I'm getting very good results on recommendations for shows/movies that the platform believes I will enjoy based on what I have said I like and dislike. A number of these that I have really enjoyed I never would have found in the vast library of things to watch without these recommendations and thus would have missed out on something I really enjoyed.
So my question for everyone this week, What are your thoughts and opinions on AI & Machine learning? Are we as humans exploring something that will eventually be our new overlords as depicted in so many sci-fi films? Or have we found yet another way to use technology to help everyone?
I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
Have a great rest of the week!
