Artificial anything. A good thing?

All this hooha about Artificial Intelligence got me thinking about the word artificial, which I think I remember from school as not being a particularly positive thing to be or to do. So here is one of the Oxford Dictionary's interpretations

contrivedpretendedputon, exaggerated, actorlyoverdone

Then the Urban Dictionary describes AI as... 
Natural blonde who dyed his/her hair in a dark(er) colour. ie That girl went to a hairdresser to get some artificial intelligence.

Well it seems Artificial Intelligence is now a good thing... The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

So this month ICEONLINE is dedicating our Tech section to AI and its applications across the spectrum. Not just in events. But please take a look at our regular tech contributor Clemi from Noodle Live as she considers how AI is going to impact on our event day jobs.
