AI is the latest in a long line of technology buzzwords that have gripped society, and if we are to believe the people at the respected technology analysts firm Gartner Inc., 2018 will be the year in which AI is truly integrated into our daily lives.

Thus, culture plays an important role in the formation of AI through what's known as the enculturation of that data.
