      AI is already used in industry, it lets computers make decisions based on what they “see” or set of rules. For example you can teach a computer to distinguish between types of apples .

      We already use forms of AI such as genetic algorithms in many places where machines have to make decisions based on inputs. Self driving cars are an example where this is really becoming useful
