What really is "Artificial Intelligence" or "Machine Learning"?

This technology is the most misunderstood in the world - to the point that we don't even have a single set of terminology that we can all agree to use. Therefore, I'd like to answer the question of what this technology is, why it's important, what it's capable of, and particularly: what is it NOT capable of?

Why does AI not pose an existential threat to humanity?

Artificial Intelligence technology is misleading. Everyone has a different view on what can be done with it, or the kind of impact it'll have on humanity. There's traditionally a very bipolar response to this technology - you either absolutely love it, or you hate it. I believe you can only reach the true, "sober" view of AI/ML when you understand the backend of this technology and the events that have led up to making this tech so misunderstood, which is precisely what I want to share.

Why is it important to bring the youth into technology?

How can future generations be ready for the technology of tomorrow?

We, humans, are special because we can innovate at an exponential scale. However, there is one issue: if we don't get the next generation of humans ready for the future in which they have to maintain, build, and innovate upon this complex technology, our rate of innovation plateau. This is precisely the opposite of what humanity needs, we require faster and faster development. The only way this momentum can be achieved and sustained is if the youth are educated the right way, the personalized way, the unbiased way.
