We all are familiar with 'Siri', the personal assistant which comes along with your IPhone. We are also familiar with the voice command prompt which Google often nudges us toward. Today, our world can easily fit into our phones. There's an application for almost all of our needs. The next step for most of these apps is voice or visual recognition and decision making which is where artificial intelligence comes into play. 

It's not just your phone, but also websites that you visit which are implementing Artificial Intelligence principles on a large scale. Facebook recently debuted an AI project to improve chatbots. The social media site already has facial recognition feature which allows it to identify people in photos and gives you suggestion for tagging. AI is also used for targeted advertisement.
