Artificial Intelligence: Trick or Treat?

The word “Halloween” is a mashup of two words, “hallows” and “eve.” In 1785, Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote a poem, “Halloween,” which helped popularize the name for the Celtic tradition. More than 200 years later, the Halloween of days’ past looks completely different from the holiday around the corner. Even still, one fact is timeless—Halloween originated from a tradition of human storytelling that gives rise to the innovation economy that exists today. Every year, human technology advances faster, and with 2021 around the corner, we live in a world in which robots, artificial intelligence, social networks, and digital art are part of everyday existence. The Halloween party of the future is already here.
