Artificial Intelligence (AI) has arrived, and will be a major factor in our lives, very soon. We’ve already experienced some form of it; a shopping assistant on your favorite website, a banking program that recognizes suspicious activity, or even an article that pops up when you run an Internet search for “Top Kitchen Remodelers in Dubuque, Iowa,” It’s taken a foothold in our lives, and we’ve barely noticed.

A month or so back, we at MacguyverTech wrote an article about explaining cryptocurrency to your family during the holidays. We used a fictional “Uncle Fred” as an antagonist, who was adamant that Bitcoin was worthless.
