Virtual assistants like Alexa and Cortana respond to all our queries and fulfill all our requests in a jiffy of seconds. OTT platforms like Netflix, Prime and music applications such as Spotify, Gaana, create playlists on a daily basis keeping in consideration the taste of the person listening to the song or watching the series.
AI has become an integral part of our daily lives and life without it is now impossible.
