Machine-learning methods play an essential role in our everyday lives, when we are searching for something on Google, Siri, Alexa, and Google assistant are one of the most commonly used AI apps we are all using AI all the time. When Netflix recommends you a movie, it’s basically AI functioning at the back-end. Whether you realize or not, you’re interacting with AI daily
