Even though artificial intelligence (AI) is a common term in every line of business and location, i.e. home and business, most people in the tech industry would tell you it is the future of their industry, still. This interesting topic came to us from the Predictive Analytics World in their article, “A.I. Is Learning From Humans. Many Humans.

What they don’t mention is the labor-intensive process that goes into its creation and maintenance. AI is constantly learning from humans.

Before that can happen though, someone has to label the data supplied to it. The work is vital to the creation of AI in applications such as self-driving cars, surveillance systems and automated health care.

Because tech companies keep quiet about this work, they face concerns from privacy activists over the large amounts of personal data they are storing and sharing with outside businesses.

In addition, despite what many perceive as highly intellectual and scientific work, the salaries are not commensurate.
