For contextual clarity, this piece uses the term “machines” for computers or computerised devices and technologies.

Our world is one with an ever-growing dependence on machines. Machines are so ubiquitous in human affairs that they have become a very important part of what it means to be alive in modern times. Many would agree that technology has improved the quality of our lives, enabled us to make quality decisions fast by suppressing noise in its presentation of data.

Machines capable of perceiving their environments, learning from their experiences, and taking actions that improve their chances of achieving goals have continued to gain widespread acceptance. They have empowered organisations to build even more sophistication into their products — these machines are typically regarded as “intelligent”.

We’ve come a long way since the first human voyage into space. We’ve sent machines to data-gathering missions in the far beyond — our ability to explore farther into outer space is not in question. We’ve gotten better at processing natural languages and making life-changing predictions.
