You may not have noticed it, but artificial intelligence, otherwise known as AI, has been sending its tendrils slowly but surely onto the World Wide Web.  At first, its foray onto the Internet was tenuous at best and comical at worst when Google created an AI that it turned loose to try and make sens of the images it found online.  Hoping to find a workaround for one of the search engine's biggest lapses, which causes search engine spiders to be totally blind to both images and videos, the attempt resulted in hilarity when its creation began morphing images as it tried to make sense of queries posed about them.  Undeterred, Google recently turned it's AI loose on everything from it's digital assistant called Google Now, to search engine duties, the latter of which has been dubbed RankBrain. Micorsoft has also jumped into the fray with it own AI called Cortana which daybuied with the launch of Windows 10.  Not to be left out of the AI race, Facebook too has started employing AI, calling theirs M.  Whatever you call it, the bottom line is that AI will soon worm its way into every part of the Internet, which is already integrated into every facet of our society.  Whether this is good or bad, only time will tell, but what is a certainty is that sooner or later there won't be a device on the planet that won't have a brain of its own.
