Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly evolving technology that is seeping into our lives and affecting how we live, work and entertain ourselves. Everyday examples include voice-activated personal assistants, self-driving features in cars, and websites suggesting films and songs we might like based on our previous choices.
