ML models can reason about daily tasks and actions

Late advancements in artificial intelligence have recharged interest in building frameworks that learn and think as individuals. Numerous advances have originated from utilizing deep neural networks trained end-to-end in operations, for example, object recognition, video games, and board games, accomplishing tasks that are equal to or even beats people in certain regards. In spite of their biological inspiration and performance achievements, these frameworks are different from human intelligence in essential ways.
