Not a day goes by without one reading about the hype and excitement around artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and chatbots. Organizations large and small, across multiple industries and geographies, have jumped in the game to explore what AI can do for them.

However, there is a lot of confusion about what they really mean and what is actually possible today. From awesome AI to awful AI, the spectrum of news is wide and varied. Also, these terms are used arbitrarily and sometimes interchangeably, which further perpetuates confusion.
