I’ve gotten my Amazon ordering abilities down to three clicks and i’m done – everything I need for the week – snacks, face masks and toilet paper.
It couldn’t get any better.
Or could it?
I hear this term a lot – “artificial intelligence”, or AI.
I know ‘artificial’ means ‘fake’ (like my nails in 8th grade) and intelligence means ‘smarts’ (like my decision to never wear them again). Seems simple enough, right?
Artificial intelligence is a technology that is designed to detect patterns and learn about whatever information is passed through it. It then uses what it learns to predict and suggest more intelligent content.
As I made my three click Amazon purchase, Amazon’s AI was learning(wut) which snacks I liked, how quickly I went through face masks and roughly how long a 12 pack of toilet paper lasts in my apartment.
Not even my boyfriend knows that I go though three bags of Goldfish a week, or that my skin isn’t naturally glowing!
But AI knows. It’s learned my secrets.
And now it suggests even better Korean face masks and my skin looks better than ever.
