I am not sure this qualifies as a huge accomplishment in the world of science and technology, but thanks to a new app called Dango, machines are starting to get pretty good at memeing. Motherboard brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “AI Is Learning to Meme.”

Teaching machines how to naturally communicate with humans is a core goal of researchers working to create a general artificial intelligence (AI). A machine that possesses the same level of intelligence as a human may have seemed farfetched a few decades ago, but they are closer each and every day.

Social media fun like memes and emoji are increasingly a part of what we consider human language. If you consider that emoji was the Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year in 2015, it was only a matter of time.

Semantic technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning continue to evolve and be used in a variety of applications. It has never been more important to have someone with the expertise and knowledge handling your content, developing your taxonomies, and making your information findable.
