About me and the project

My name is Lilmya Ortiz a biology student at Meredith College.

This website was built as my final for BIO 188: as a tool to communicate science with a specific public. 

Why artificial intelligence? There are numerous pros to AI! Most importantly, this technological advancement is what is shaping the future. Artificial intelligence is used in everyday life. Therefore, clear explanations and adequate education can help debunk any negative or untrue notation of Artificial intelligence.
