Artificial Intelligence is quickly moving from science fiction to science fact, and IBM Watson is not alone in offering machine learning algorithms in easy to consume REST API forms for developers to consume. But in this nascent industry it can be hard to understand the differences between different approaches along with the value of "AI." Drawing on a number of real-world examples, Michael Ludden explains how "Artificial Intelligence" (in quotes for a reason) can and is already being leveraged by developers to reduce the need for teams of data scientists, create insane new applications and services, and allow for personalized experiences that border on creepy. More importantly we'll give a realistic look at the immediate future of the space and some helpful guidance as we rapidly begin to live the futurist novels we read last year.
