This study compares and contrasts major trends in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and examines the changes that AI is causing in society, education, and work. Based on current trends, predictions regarding future directions of AI research and its impact on society are made. Recommendations are made regarding the responsible and effective use of AI technology in different fields. AI-based machines and systems that can learn from experience, analyze complex situations, and make some independent decisions and predictions may soon fundamentally change the way humans live, study, and work (Husain, 2018). Governments, education systems, and companies need to adapt to emerging AI technologies and to prepare citizens, students, and workers for co-existence with increasingly autonomous online systems and interconnected machines. An understanding of the benefits and potential risks of AI can help leaders, educators, and managers to plan and prepare for a global society in which AI-based systems and machines may play an important role in many aspects of human activity.
