The term Artificial Intelligence was originally coined by John McCarthy in 1955 who defined it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.” More than half a century later, AI and machine learning are taking their places among tech’s most talked about trends.

Over the past few years, AI has made inroads in data mining, industrial robotics, speech recognition and much more. And its rise is only slated to continue. By 2022, the overall artificial intelligence market is expected to be worth more than $16 billion. That’s an expected compound annual growth rate of over 62% from 2016 to 2022. It’s not wonder then that tech giants and small startups alike are investing heavily in AI and machine learning. Here, we’ve compiled an in-depth guide to help you brush up on your AI knowledge.
