Artificial intelligence (AI) is prevalent in our work and personal lives more than ever before. The indications for the future are that this will continue to grow. It will transform all of our jobs and lives. Information Age brought this topic to us in their article, “Artificial Intelligence: The fourth industrial revolution.

AI is not a new concept. Its roots are in the expert systems of the ‘70s and ‘80s. The computers that were programmed with a human’s expert knowledge in order to allow decision-making based on the available facts.

Today, the evolution of machine learning systems are changing the dynamics. No longer are machines just capturing knowledge, they are now developing a tacit, intuitive knowledge. The kind of knowledge that’s hard to describe, let alone transfer.

AI models are good at learning to recognize patterns in a variety of mediums, including images. However, there is one issue that affects results and it has always has: data quality.
