Artificial intelligence is a concept which, owing to its intricacy, is difficult to define with complete accuracy. In a way, it is a field of computer science whose goal is to recreate a technological counterpart to human intelligence. And, to do so, this discipline is focused on the search for ways to enable a machine to perform functions normally associated with human intelligence: for example, understanding, reasoning, discussion, adaptation, learning
[...] Through her human-like appearance, Sophia leads each person to reflect on the ethical debates regarding the legal status of these robotic ‘beings' along with the place that artificial intelligence should have in our lives. In conclusion, the development of artificial intelligence seems to have reached a stage that makes the most imaginative science-fiction authors appears down-to-earth. All these tremendous technological advances are not without fuelling a certain number of fears, particularly about the risk of the creator losing control over his creature. [...]
[...] Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence is a concept which, owing to its intricacy, is difficult to define with complete accuracy. In a way, it is a field of computer science whose goal is to recreate a technological counterpart to human intelligence. And, to do so, this discipline is focused on the search for ways to enable a machine to perform functions normally associated with human intelligence: for example, understanding, reasoning, discussion, adaptation, learning I. A Brief Historical Overview While advances in artificial intelligence are fairly recent, the idea of designing intelligent machines dates back many years, and more precisely to the famous computer scientist Alan Turing, whom I will briefly outline.

[...] You just have to surf on Amazon, LinkedIn, Spotify or Netflix to witness that these platforms automatically provide suggestions for movies, music or services whose acumen often proves to be puzzling. For example, Netflix relies on artificial intelligence to create an algorithm that recommends new series or movies to watch according to the data obtained about the user. This platform generates up to 33 million different versions of Netflix for each user account. This customization is such that even the presentation photos of the movies or series differ depending on the user's profile as you can see with the series stranger things. V. [...]
[...] Humanoid Robots Finally, humanoid robots, whose appearance is reminiscent of humans, are endowed with highly advanced artificial intelligence. Developed in 2017 by Hanson Robotics, Sophia is one of the most publicized robots in recent years: capable of displaying many emotions, delivering speeches and moving around, it travels across television sets and invites itself to the most prestigious events. More than that, in 2017, Sophia spoke at the UN and in the process obtained Saudi citizenship, which sparked a storm of controversy. [...]
[...] Artificial Vision To begin with, Artificial Vision allows the machine to accurately identify the content of an image and then automatically classify it according to the object, color, or face that has been spotted. This ability to parse, process and comprehend images is widely used by Google, Apple and Facebook to collect and analyze as much data as possible from the photos stored on their servers. To be more concrete, facial recognition technologies used in smartphones, surveillance cameras or even the analysis of medical imagery rely on Artificial Vision. [...]
