d) Most AI bots are women  

The gender imbalance in AI has been trending ever since the birth of Siri (Apple), Alexa (Amazon), and Cortana (Microsoft). Most of the AI bots lean towards adopting the persona of a woman due to their high ability to perceive emotions such as empathy and humanness in comparison to men. Additionally, most people prefer a female voice to a male voice. This has encouraged most of the AI to adopt a female version.   

e) AI can detect emotions 

Detecting the emotions of humans is now possible with the help of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Computer Vision to detect motion and object sensors. On observing mouth, eyes, eyebrows and movements, AI can generate an analysis of the pattern and predict a human’s emotions based on the emotional scale of humans.

But it doesn’t negate the fact that AI can enhance the communication medium in an organisation by several folds. Still, doubting it? Some of the striking features to support this statement include speech recognition, data analysis, chatbots, and aid in customer interaction through Machine Learning.  

h) Chatbots are winning the market 

Chatbots for businesses are a huge boon to the industry. They are highly beneficial as they contribute to customer service, sales, and brand image. You might have often asked a query in the chatbot or raised a ticket to resolve an issue.

As per Goldman Sachs, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could accelerate the world economy by 7%. 

j) Much dreaded scenario is indeed possible  

Artificial Intelligence has been a subject of threat and controversial development. It has been debated throughout the years, attributing to the dystopian potential of AI. With many science-fictional (Sci-fi) works referring to the same, it is not very hard to process the dangerous amount of truth it could hold. Stephen Hawking has extensively researched the subject to learn about the collective threat it poses and listed preventive measures to avoid the same. 

k) Not only can AI emote- they can also pursue humans
