Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomy are becoming a major component of our day-to-day life.  In this talk, we will first look at how intentionally or unintentionally we are interacting with the different applications of AI, then we briefly took  at some of the different techniques and methods that are used in different AI applications.  Finally, we take a look at some of the myths and aspirations of what AI can do for us now or in the future.
