Unlocking the Code: Exploring AI Slang and Terms

Understanding Artificial Intelligence (AI) content goes beyond mere linguistic curiosity; it offers a gateway to broader conversations surrounding innovation, ethics, and societal impact. But before getting deeper into it, some new technological terms might need an explanation. When it comes to a specific subject such as AI, it is not easy to avoid crossing the limits between slang and jargon, as the field of jargon also evolves quickly and new terms are coined frequently. Keeping abreast of the latest developments, trends and terminologies is a good way to have accurate communication before the terms become effectively rooted in the technological field.

Here are some slang/new words related to Artificial Intelligence that have emerged in our society.
