No longer strictly relegated to the realm of science fiction shows and novels, artificial intelligence can be found behind important technologies that are driving innovation throughout the world. From space exploration and self-driving cars to data science and marketing algorithms, AI is the driving force behind many technologies that are moving humanity forward.

http://www.texturemind.com/post463/ TypingRobot is an artificial intelligence studied to increase your points record with the Typing Maniac game on Facebook. It can recognize several labels because it uses a powerfull OCR system (tesseract) and some principle of word correction. With this program you can make millions of points without problems (my personal record is about 2.700.000 points).
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that learning to program is becoming a highly lucrative and useful skill. Monster.com called coding "the skill you need today" if you want a job in some of the highest-paying fields out there. If the last year has proven anything, working online requires a strong digital infrastructure that someone has to help build. That someone can, and should, be you.
