Contextual Data

The real Artificial Intelligence consists of tedious mathematical models that are usually presented in form of academic research papers and rigorous code. This meme is an inside joke within the developer community about the exaggeration of AI by the media. The media tends to present any simple piece of code as AI for marketing and click baiting people because AI sells. The selling phenomenon of AI can be evidenced by big Hollywood movies such as the Terminator and the Matrix. The media takes advantage of the selling point of AI to make profits although it doesn’t even understand the real AI.
