AI Bot was created one evening while I was sketching robots. I have a few comics about robots
but the AI Bot is a little different. He is reminiscent of old Japanese wind-up robots and is artificially intelligent (hence the AI). His purpose is to embody all of the different types of artificial intelligence and bots that I have had the pleasure of working on, experimenting with, or encountering while online. Bots can be as simple as a web crawler that reads web pages or as complex as a system that helps predict and track illness. Companies like Google, Facebook and IBM help move the state-of-the-art forward and I feel like AI has finally found its way into a large part of our daily lives - think speech recognition, self-driving cars, digital assistants, and chat bots. I'm excited and cautiously optimistic to see what the future of artificial intelligence has in store.
