How do the processes behind Artificial intelligence work?

It is true that AI makes a lot of things automatic. At the end of the day, though, the “human touch” is still needed. As Data Scientist, you develop AI and recognise patterns and connections that AI alone cannot. Your task is to carry out analyses, identify cause-and-effect relationships, and visualise the collected data in an appealing manner.
